Just a quick note -- The Gormenghast Novels are absolutely amazing. I'm surprised more people haven't heard of them. If Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Tim Burton, and Hayao Miyazaki got together and wrote a gothic-tinged fantasy novel, then it would be Gormenghast.

Yes, it's that awesome.

Plus, Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays Steerpike. I've only read three sentences about him so far, but I know that he will be PERFECT.

And with that... I'm gonna finish this chapter.

EDIT: "'Gallstones!' and in the dimness he flung his arms apart so that the buttons of his tunic were torn away, one of them whizzing across the room and stunning a cockroach on the opposite wall." That sentence owns on so many levels....

Also, I would like to begin shouting "Gallstones!" at the top of my lungs at random intervals. You know, just to see peoples' reactions.


<_< What?
