I just finished re-reading Black Sun Rising. *God*, I love that book. I like the ending of that book better than any other book I’ve ever read in my entire life, and, as Sarah said, I’ve read a lot. The entire book is, in one way, a glorious, huge, wonderful setup for a punchline that I will never get over the glee of, no matter how many times I read it. Every time I read the book, I re-read the last several pages several times in a row, just because it’s *so* *wonderful*. I just can’t get over how amazingly perfect it is. *laugh* *God*, I love that book! *laugh*
I was a lot more aware, in this reading, of *how* the book is written. Noticing on an active level things like POV changes and sentence structures, and how one character’s perceptions are different from others and the kinds of language they use. Thank goodness this does nothing to dilute my delight in the book. :)
I was going to say a lot more, but I’ve gotten caught up talking about Sarah’s book with her, and now whatever I was going to say has fled my head. Bai bai thoughts!
