I had a bit of a reading marathon today and managed to finish Kushiel’s Dart. Huh. I think we’ll have lots to discuss. How’s everybody else doing? I know this is a busy time of year, so if folks haven’t had a chance to pick it up (but still want to) let me know and we’ll just postpone the discussion a bit. If you’re still on the fence, just let me warn (or is it persuade?) you again that this is a very “sexy” book and you should be pretty open-minded before tackling it. There aren’t any really graphic sex descriptions; it’s more just the idea of what Phédre is and how her world works. (Personally, I’d have preferred more scenes of nookie with my favorite character – and less with, oh, say everybody else – but that’s jumping ahead to the discussion and that’s very naughty.) Just so you know.
