Ha! My grandson (who is home today with an upset stomach) just asked me if I knew what a Kraken was. He's studied quite a bit about mythology. I told his about this thread.

Sigh, it seems it will be Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. Looks like I will be reading a YA novel even though the New York Times says I should be less ashamed to read pornography.

Which month is the Pornography one?

I unashamedly started listening to Neverwhere yesterday, Neil Gaiman is reading it and it's good fun so far.

Which is pretty much the attitude that has pretty much stopped my book club participation.

The NYT opinion piece or my sarcasm about it?

Not to mention, gasp, the two time appearance of Lolita. Where is that plain brown wrapper?

Let's make the next classics a pornography month. All we have to do is just nominate classic pornography and there we have it.

Just curious, is Neverwhere considered YA? Looking on Amazon and fictiondb I don't see any age recomendations?

I wouldn't have placed Neverwhere as a YA novel myself. I thought it was rather adult.

It's a great book, but I don't particularly want to read it again. If I can remember all the details well enough I will still participate in the discussion.

Meanwhile I'm off to play with my Kraken alone.

All of you not voting Kraken - your names have been noted. *evil laugh*

Actually - I found a limited edition book cover for Kraken the other day which was rather lovely. I loaded it up into my Calibre to replace the existing cover. Have a gander.



Not bad eh?
