This is how I am with Drawing Down the Moon. I know it's highly recommended, but I have yet to make it through it (and I have two copies of it!) Put's me to sleep every time.
I myself have done some searching of those authors mentioned, I can find nothing to get unnecessarily upset about though. There is a smattering of course, but I would expect no less considering how many people feel about our ways. Ashe, if you can point me to something more conclusive; I will happily look at it. However, thanks for your own recomendation for Deborah Lipp. Any reading this thread can see your recommendation and can add that to their own wish lists.
