It had to be got rid of really, they'd be delivering it for years otherwise. But yes, whenever I'm reading it I think 'what a cop out!'

And did anyone notice that this book contains the secret to women? :wink:

The secret to women wasn't the dancing bit, was it?

Re the letters, who's to say that all the real ones weren't delivered?
The ones that were burnt might have only been the ones from parallel universes, which couldn't have been delivered anyway.

As they're neither use nor ornament for that once the ink's dry :wink:

I'm a woman (well I can remember being one once anyway :P ) and I didn't see any secret there. Just some women are silly enough to let themselves fall for someone with the 'gift of the gab' who actually likes talking to you - what Adora didn't notice was that he was mostly talking about or for himself... :twisted:

Unless you meant Moist deflecting Miss Macthingummy when she was doing the distressed maiden thing?

Still no :lol:

Half the secret is that women often don't realise they're falling for it. Or it wouldn't be a very good trick.

The secret to women is being an untrustworthy liar, but telling her that you are also. :twisted:

What did we think of the other characters in this book? Stanley and Mr Groat and what about the relationship between Moist and Adora Belle?

BTW - did everyone get the joke (sort of) behind Stanley's name? He was raised by peas and 'peas' is an anagram of 'apes' and for those who know anything about stamp collecting the name Stanley Gibbons will be familiar. Of course gibbons are apes although the Stanley in this book has the surname Howler, presumably as in howler monkey. :D
