Oh dear, henriettastreet
, I'm sorry - I've been a terrible mod and totally failed to do readalong posts for many many months (it was 'The Taint' that did it. It was so so bad)(no, it wasn't 'The Taint'. Not really)(it was
bad, though). But - as far as I'm concerned, they're still going on. So, please do keep playing if you want to keep playing. Or jump on if you want - this is actually quite a good time, as the last readalong book (back in the day) was Fitz's intro book (here'a a thing about Fitz
and recent events you might enjoy).This month's featured book:
'Revolution Man' by Paul Leonard
(Just to remind you, the readlong featured book is one that has been widely approved of, and is the book you should read if you only have the time or inclination to read one EDA this month).
'Revolution Man' is the twenty fourth EDA, and it's by Paul Leonard, whom we have met before in such former discussions as 'Genocide' and 'Dreamstone Moon', both of which I recall not going down all that well. I'm pretty sure I have read this one, but I don't remember anything about it. But don't be put off! It is relatively highly regarded. It's set in the sixties and is about music, hippies, drugs and communism. It's also got a lot of weird stuff happening to Fitz, which is interesting (and the start of a repeated theme...)
Please put spoilery comments behind lj-spoiler cuts or white-out the text below an indication of where you are in the book. And please comment and discuss if possible!Other readalong books this month: Dominion
