I've got a stinking cold and a hacking cough which is most unlike me. I decided to spend my confinement seeing what all the hype was about and borrowed Julie's copy of FSoG. Errr. . .good publicity but awful writing and the most believable character so far seems to be the grey silk tie. Maybe I'm just old and boring but as yet it doesn't really do anything for me (except bring on a coughing fit) and I feel sad for better writers of Adult Fiction who quite simply weren't in the right-place-at-the-right-time when the publicity machine started to roll. I've never read Barbara Cartland or Mills & Boon so I don't have many comparisons with modern literary Adonises but Jilly Cooper does a good line in macho hunks with more than a hint of whips and spurs who don't take themselves quite so blimmin' seriously. I'll endeavour to finish the book (purely in the interests of research of course) while I have the time, so may be tied up for a little while longer. . .
