I can't believe it took so long on my first reading to see the slap stick. though I grant myself a lot of credit to see it just slighly before landen did.

I was surprized, but there were a few more chapters, so I kept reading. usually you wait till the end to kill off your character if your in a series. but that's usual....fforde we can safely say is not "usual".

by the way...I've been convicted of Gramatical Homicide, and charged 18 years to life, so don't bother telling me about all the spelling mistakes. It's already on my record.

I know there were a few people who figured out Granny Next, but I sure wasn't one of them!

I suppose we should have put a spoiler warning at the beginning of this threadů

i kinda hinted at the granny next thing but wasnt really sure.

grannys croquet dream shouldve been a big sign, but i thought it was just a dream or something unimportant

but i guess some of us just dont look as hard as we should

we always say were gonna do it for the Next book,but lets be honest.

none of us ever do.

Incidentally, I've just been rereading Something Rotten, and I realized in one of the chapter headings, there is a mention of a space captain with an alien sidekick named Ashley. Echoes of the soon-to-be-published TBOE?

You know I always wanted to start a topic entitled "all the things I should have gotten but didn't"

I felt so stupid when someone told me what Landen's last name was suppose to be from....I'm a collector of the stupid things for goodness sake! You think I would have seen that.

anyway is there anything else in the books that you think you should have seen?

Why not start one then? Nextian is the obvious place, but don't expect it to stay on topic for long.......
