Glad you’re feeling better! Although, as your health improves so does your ‘tude – what’s that all about? It’s got whiskers on it!
Anyhow, a weird thing has been happening. You know, how I said I thought I’d read The Messenger. Well, yes, I had. The first time I read it, I was obsessed with the plot and solving the central mystery of the book. I won’t do spoilers here but suffice to say I was disappointed with the resolution.
But this time, kind of already knowing that things don’t wrap up that neatly, I’m just really enjoying the ride with Ed Kennedy. He’s a self-deprecating, caring cabbie who lives on his own with a stinky cross-breed called The Doorman. When Ed gets home from work he makes himself a coffee and one in The Doorman’s bowl, complete with sugar the way he likes it. I love this!
And there’s a whole heap of great cameo characters as well. So it’s weird, I’m letting myself just go along for the ride and it’s enjoyable. I must admit I’m getting a bit nervous as I approach the end because well, you know…
Also, I have this vague idea that Ed is some sort of Jesus/Saint character and that there’s a whole deeper level to this book that people (er, deeper than me) could really get off on.
Anyway, will be interested to see what you think.
