The Gods are feeding me awen! This book has been on my physical TBR shelves for 4 years. Having just finished Neuromancer last nite , I needed a new book and chose this among several hundred waiting patiently.
What a fabulous hoot! Especially after just watching Hogfather on DVD and resurrecting Pratchett's God's trilogy. I an being pushed in a direction by unseen forces, it seems. This will be my 1st read. I recognize a lot of 'obscure' allusions, but miss many, many more, I'm sure, that I want to look up so much, I could not really enjoy the book. I also really like the obvious cultural effects of his being a British-American.
Definitely the best fantasy of the decade. This will take several re-readings. Next time I will have wikipedia and a quote notebook at hand.
