Thanks for referring to the article - its a very good read.

Thanks Vipula.

Loved Black Swan Green myself, and love Mitchell's writing. Still have Ghostwritten to go, which I'm saving for a rainy day. :)

Thanks for the linky.

Yes, that was a great article, wasn't it? Such a misunderstood problem, stammering. And I loved the way the central character's life was dominated by his stammer in Black Swan Green - I think most people assume that it's a minor irritation to those who stammer whereas, in fact, it rules their lives in all sorts of disabling ways (she says with her speech and language therapist's hat on!) I wonder if that's why I liked BSG much more than Cloud Atlas?

Thanks for your comment anothercookiecrumbles - I haven't read Ghostwritten either, yet.

Alis - yes, BSG is a wondeful book. I enjoyed them both however!
