It's years since I read this for the first time, and some years since I've read it again. It was just as much of a pleasure - this time particularly, beyond the well-told story, which mostly came back to me as I read, other things made an impact. Adams's ability to put you into the English countryside with all your senses, so you hear the birds, see the turn and shape of leaves - evocative writing. The story remains strong, but also the truth of it - how many times and in how many countries/cultures since has a Woundwort had the chance to change the world, and has stayed with autocracy rather than adventuring to co-operation?
If you haven't read it in a while, treat yourself. Wonderful writing.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
