Cool. Hope you like it as much as I did.

A virgin to this blogging lark, and slightly apprehensive. However, you're my first, and pleasantly surprised with our common kinship; similar eclectic taste and philosophy.

How would you feel about reviewing my forthcoming album 'All Upon a Lovely Summer's day'?

I found this book to have lived up to the hype, at least as much as I had heard before I purchased it. It is dark, and gritty, and has moments of gallows humor, and seems chock full of symbolism which I might understand more on the second read through. The whole thing is written as though in the memoirs of Eli, which apparently some people did not understand, and so seems at first stilted, but quickly becomes endearing.
