Thank you very much LESEHEST, I look forward to this one. Although it probably has to wait for a bit...

Edited 28th of July:
I released this copy in Egypt before I managed to finish it, thus I have now (finally) finished another copy.
I have to admit that I have struggled with the book, even if I do not really understand why, as the book is really up my alley! I just couldn't get into the story, and found it to drag out endlessly. (I have to add that my better half read the book before me, and he enjoyed it!)

Hopefully the next reader will enjoy the book more.

I have adde a quote that I quite liked, it is the Baron talking to Quentin.
P 153: Truth is my only concern. But - truth must be hauled and carted from people's heads....But truth does not exist, my misguided friend, until you find it.

And this short conversation made me laugh out load!
P 162: "And tell me your story, dear sir," said the man.
"I would gladly, monsieur," replied Duponte apologetically, "but then there is the likely danger that I would have to hear yours."
