I seem to remember they serialised it back in the 80s on Radio 4. :)

Enjoy! I'm pretty sure I've read that one. There's so many it can get a bit confusing after a while.

I have a Jeeves & Wooster dvd box set with Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie as our favourite chaps.

I've already read When It's a Jar. It was OK.

Just finished Dead Ever After and it's alright quite enjoyable
least without giving anything away to try and make my feelings on this book
readable I've read some of the online reviews and I have never seen so
much bile from so many fangirls but I enjoyed the book and
yeah it wasn't a great intellectual read but it was a happy ever after
from a very long running series of books that lets be honest has
being going downhill for quite some time

I would not consider any of them to be an intellectual read but I have enjoyed the series, just waiting on the American edition coming out in March.

This one really got slagged off as absolute crap with a lot of fans out of 96 reviews it got 2* as the highest rating, it's a UK only publication by Gollancz no USA editions being published, After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse, that one I won't be buying looks like they are milking it for what they can get.

She is going to be a GOH at the The British Fantasy Society's Fantasycon this year in York if I miss this one it will be the 1st one in 20 odd years I have missed, I did not renew my membership this year it has become too much horror oriented for my liking the past few years, :( so it was time to vote with my feet so speak as a few others have done.
