I've just finished Nation (started it last night and only put it down because I fell asleep) and 'Wow'. Yes I admit I cried. Not done that with one of Terry's book before. It really does make you think.

And after reading the other posts, think I probably should make a effort to read Charlotte's Web.

Read it again, silverstreak ... I did (as I always do) and discovered so much I had not picked up on first time round. It's better the second time around!

OH! The Calormene God is from Wales, fancy that! j/k :wink:
Welcome Tash.

I liked Charlotte's Web as a child, but I doubt I'd like it so much now. If you haven't read it yet, it might not live up to your expectations, then again it might. Though Templeton is and always will be great! :D

I wouldn't be able to keep up either. :lol: Well, Nation has hit the stores here as of yesterday (as far as I know), and it doesn't look like I'll be getting out to get one anytime soon. :( Thing 1 is home with an awful cold. :(
