I really enjoyed it Dipps - I’d heard an adaptation on Radio 4 before I read it

I have read lots of Vonnegut, years and years ago which are very good indeed. Also Fowles. Watershed Down, that's a good idea! I have The Sea, The Sea around here somewhere which I may or may not have read.

Watershed! Ha. I found The Sea, The Sea, it is in the bookcase in the hallway where unread books go to retirement, it's next to a Camus and a Ford Madox Ford.

I was going to read The Sea, The Sea but it just looked too long when I found it in the library. I went for Larry Niven instead but this was a pretty bad and dated sci-fi which I can't recommend!
