    Question,

    I just got the book but it isn't divided into parts. So just wanted to double check that we're talking about the first 50 pages? (51 to be exact)

    Correct! They are not numbered parts so to speak but they have a symbol to split it up

    I can't wait any longer! LOL

    I found the first 18 pages of the this book really difficult to get through and I was starting to get concerned. Something happened between pages 18 and 20 and I became hooked and couldn't put the book down!!

    Dr Urbino's character I guess was the cause of my frustration, which now I realise was probably the whole point of the way it was written!

    How funny is Forentino Ariza with his chosen moment of declaration. I loved it.


    Waiting for your feedback before discussing further

    I'm at page 10. these first 10 pages were hard and difficult to get through.
    I'll be looking forward to page 19 then should finish it in a couple of days.
    One of the things Ford Prefect had always found hardest to understand about humans was their habit of continually stating and repeating the very very obvious.

    lol! I only started the first few pages, then I had to stop myself before going too far. I decided to wait until the last two days of the week so I could finish in time.
