So, it has been a good ten years since I read Dragonfly in Amber so this re-read has been very much like coming to the book for the first time.
I give you my reaction to the first 50 pages.
Roger? Who the heck is Roger? Wait, I don't care.
*turns back a page*
What! Where's Claire?
Oh, hello Claire!
Ah, that's who Roger is, I remember now.
Where's Jamie and who the fiz is Brianna?
Go away Roger.
Ooo itallic. A dream? A thought?
Oh, hello Claire.
Gah, couldn't you have told me something useful?
Dead? Now hang on a moment, what do you mean by dead?
Yip, that was pretty much my thought process for the first few chapters of Dragonfly in Amber.
It was stressful stuff.
