So today, after reading Nymeth’s glowing review of Fingersmith, and discovering that I wanted to reread Fingersmith more than I wanted anything, I reread Fingersmith and enjoyed it much more this time, now that I knew everything that was coming. Actually I enjoyed it enormously and it was just what I was in the mood for; it was like being desperately thirsty and having a great big class of cool, clean, delicious Baton Rouge water. Which was good because I am feeling sickly today, and actual cool, clean, delicious Baton Rouge water doesn’t taste as nice as it normally does.
Anyway, after reading it, I went on Amazon.com to read what other people had to say about it, but when I searched for it, it wasn’t easy to find. And normally I would have given up, because I am lazy, and just gone away and read something else, but I remembered hearing that Amazon was wickedly taking ratings away from books with GLBT type themes, thus making them difficult to find. Accordingly I opened up the page for Affinity, and clicked on Sarah Waters’s name to make all her books come up, and what do you think I discovered? She has written a new book and it’s coming out at the end of the month! It’s about the waning British aristocracy! I love Sarah Waters, and I love books about the waning British aristocracy!
This is very pleasing. I shall buy her new book when it comes out, and save it, and then I shall read it on the plane when I am flying to London later on this year.
