"You've tortured us all with surprise endings that made no sense. You've introduced characters in the last five pages that were never in the book before. You've withheld clues and information that made it impossible for us to guess who did it. "  -Lionel Twain, Murder by Death

That's perfect.

Even moreso, because Twain is played by Truman Capote.

I enjoyed it most when things finally hit full speed and all the characters had stopped having any doubts about what was really going on (it sure took a while to get there though).

This is where I am, I will finish the book this week, I promise.

It'll probably go faster now that you've made it this far. :)

68% done now to Kindle. The weather's been lousy in Sheffield today, so no dog walking/jogging :(, so I had that time to do some reading.
