  1. What a brilliant description. Excellent images too; you have gone to a lot of trouble. Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you – you have succinctly and articulately touched on the ‘hart’ of this wonderful book. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read it, but this has inspired me to return to it yet again. This certainly is how ‘the light gets in’ – inspired choice of title from Leonard!

  3. Thank you for this excellent post. I’ve quietly raved about this book for 30 years, so introductions of this quality will hopefully entice more people to discover Riddley’s dark world. I honestly think that Hoban’s feat of imagination, & its cohesion, is staggering. Then again, some people can’t get past the first few pages – too difficult, they say. But what a reward if you persevere!
