You know, this has become something of a revelation for me. Often when I'm reading I'm racing through the story because I want to know what happens next, and it becomes something of a habit so even when re-reading and I know
what happens next I still blast through the book at break neck speed... having it read out loud slows the process down and I'm finding I'm visualising the story so much more, the characters, the locations and action, and appreciating the scope of TP's imagination to a greater degree than ever before. And of course watching Mark come to it all for the first time you can share his enjoyment vicariously - which I guess is his whole thing - and it's almost like reading it yourself for the first time again. Almost.
I forgot the Ice Giants were in Sourcery - indeed: I was not prepared
either.lol. Wyrd Sisters next. Really looking forward to Mark meeting Nanny Ogg, wonder what he'll make of her... I can't remember, was Nanny fully realised in the first one or did she have to develop over the course of the Witches books... guess i'm gonna find out next week.
Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? ~~ Oddball
