5.0 out of 5 stars Great book from early teens onwards., 22 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Red Shift (Paperback)
I first read this book at school and fell in love with it - but if anyone can crack the code and tell me what the last two pages of the book mean I'd love to know! Ten years later I'm still trying to solve it.

The code is really straightforward - it's based on Lewis Carroll's model described in detail earlier in the novel and the code word (or phrase) is "Tom's a cold" - if it helps the ist phrase is, I believ, although I haven't thought about this or read it for about 30 years - "I love you" - personally I don'tthink it adds a whole lot to the story .... but that's probably just me!

Doesn't add a whole lot more to the story? SPOILER COMING! Try again, and you'll see it's the apology Tom couldn't make to Jan's face and also a suicide note, that's all!
