I have reserved a grass hut on a Thai island to read this book with care and attention, as its fame is well-known to all. I hope there is a bar nearby, as it is renowned for its great deepness, and one could built up a great thirst ploughing through it. Also it will be hot, the island, of course, not the book.
I like this the least of the TP but am rereading it so thought I should start at the beginning. Some nice bits like the casual closedness of his family which sets the scene for the exploration of class. NIce to have it on my Nexus (especially as I have a dictionary on it too and it's v quick to check a doubtful word.
