Read it twice. Must read again when had more sleep because right now I think you must have been on something illegal when you wrote that.Confused of highland Madness

PS feeling guilty looking at your site because there it is in the margins - I haven't posted for 3 weeks!!

Lol Amanda!

I think that 'illegal substance' feeling comes from the dream sequence that starts the chapter.

I love it--especially when Max is trying to figure out who the girl is, whether or not he slept with her and whether he's going to get sex again!

I'm also intrigued by Simon...he promises to be a most interesting character...

Well, I am really looking forward to getting aquainted with the MU characters. The quirky med student who rhymes should be a hoot. Also looking forward to the relationship between Jeremy and Simon. I look forward to a new experience in reading, with Max. CAN'T WAIT.

Ok, have had four days of hard partying, one good night sleep and I still don't get it. Maybe it's me but it's just not grabbing me in the "I can follow this" kind of way. Should I try my new theory and have a sherbert or two and read it again? It could make perfect sense through the bottom of the wine bottle!!

Jim, I finally was able to read the excerpt - and am now anxiously awaiting more! I read the dream part like you might run wind sprints (down 4 lines, back up 3 lines,etc), but after getting into the first chapter I lost all feeling that I was reading (when usually I look at every page number). I shifted back and forth from "deep concentration with furrowed brow" to laughing out loud. Bravo!
