there seems to be some confusion between character names which are felt to be unsuccessful or annoying, and characters who aren't sufficiently realised

Ptaclusp ( including ptaclusp IIa,IIb) no matter how I roll it I cant seem to make it sound alright
And in Heather's case, there were sometimes Third Thoughts and Fourth Thoughts, although these were quite difficult to manage and sometimes led her to walk into doors

Thats where the audio books shine. there it sounds like pet-a-clusp (and pet-a-clusp two A and two B) though still not the best names at least they are pronounceable.

and in my last post it should have been annoying, rather then alloying whatever that is. :(
