5 journalers for this copy...
I'd like to read it myself before I start a thread in the forum and announce it.
I've also started reading it, and am almost through...
...at first, I thought, Oh, what a difficult task she chose, to write from the viewpoint of a blind woman... but then Keir came in and he has these really entertaining conversations with Marianne... I really like the book!
Today, I finished the book, had a good cry ;o) and was sorry that it was over, would like to read more of the conversations between M. & K. how he "translates" the visible world to her... just googled for Cantus Arcticus...

Posted it this morning, the book is now on its way to UlrikeW in Leipzig.
Enjoy the read! :o)
I really liked it - especially Keir's "postcards" and the way he was able to "put things into music" for Marianne and the descriptions of Skye...
Now I already sent it on to faerie-glen on Monday.
As I love music too, I really like how Marianne describes her sense of music: 'When I hear music it goes directly to my heart, it pierces my soul and stirs me with nameless emotions, countless ideas and aural pictures'
Oh and it's great that the story is set in Scotland because I love travelling to Scotland :o)
This is the first book I've read by Linda Gillard. A friend of mine has offered me Emotional Geology ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/7297884 ) and will kindly send it to me asap.
Thank you all for joining and for your JEs.
Anyway, this way I was reminded of this book, and I'm thinking of starting another ring, maybe there are new potential readers.
