"Hang on to the words" he tells himself. The odd words- the old words- the rare ones. Valance. Norn. Serendipity. Pibroch. Lubricious. When they're gone out of his head- these words- they'll be gone- , Between the iron gates of fate- The seeds of time were sown- And watered by the deeds of those- Who know and who are known, Walking home in her wrapped up world - She survived but she's feeling old - 'Cause she found all things cold.
Insupposable, Stupendous and Astonishing Tomes
(As with most of the finest tomes, try not to read anything in advance on this novel, above and beyond that which you are about to do.)
Number Three – Oryx and Crake – Margaret Atwood.
A stunning adventure set in a possible future which is a delight to consume and keeps the grey cells turning and twisting. The main character is a fervent lover of words and how precious language can be. It is a superb read.
