He often considered tone as far as guns were concerned. Schools and firearms should be kept very separate, unless, of course, matters became really uneducational.

This book is about as different in tone as possible from the last one! British gangsters and dealers; prostitution; NSFW language—and yet, in a way, it’s really all about family. The title is Girls of course, which at first you think is strictly a reference to the prostitution going on, but it doesn’t take long to notice the impressive influence that young daughters have on their supposedly powerful and influential parents, on both sides of the law.

I keep finding myself smiling or grinning while I read this one. The dialogue is quirky, witty and entertaining, among adults and children alike. And there are plots afoot that you can just tell will go badly, although you’ve no idea in which of several ways. So far this is a terribly fun book.

I’m off to make bread and have lunch, so it might be as much as an hour before I’m back. Have fun all!

    Feline: I’m totally enjoying it right now. It’s just a pure delight!

    3m: Thank you! Perhaps a little slower than I’d like, but it’s a Saturday, and there’s bread to make and cats to pet.

    dew: I’ve been too wrapped up in the book to be able to tear myself away. Hopefully as soon as I’m done!

    Eva: Enjoy your lunch!
