Reading Progress Updates
Not the edition I’m reading, but by far the most atmospheric cover of all the editions on BL.
I don’t like either of the men — if I’m not supposed to, job well done, Ms. Howatch. If I am supposed to like one or all of them (or even find them intriguing) … I guess it’s a good thing we’ve moved on since the 1970s. That said, as a teenager I’d probably have fallen for Daniel.
Got some photos of my own, too — will have to look for them later.
And I’m pretty sure Roshven is inspired by Eilean Donan Castle … which, after all, also figures in everything from James Bond to the Highlander movie (and which in reality isn’t half as ancient as it is conveniently made to look).
Well, that was unexpected. (Not.)
Two of the main characters have just died … and all I can think is, cool, we finally should be able to wrap things up now. Seriously, this book has not aged well.
