    I very much enjoyed the book and I found the auther to be quite down to earth. I enjoyed hearing his perspectives on the books and how they came to be written. I do wonder though that the people that he patterned some of the characters on haven't gotten upset with him at his portrayals of them.

    it was ok, i had trouble hearing people, as there were other people there coming & going. Just wondering if maybe they could get a microphone for people to speak into & the author so that everyone can hear what's being said. I know there were 2 other people there that said they had hearing problems too. Just a suggestion. Ian Hamilton was ok.

    What an interesting gentleman. I wasn't surprised as his wife is all the things that Ian described in the perfect woman. It was so nice to see everyone participate.

    Couldn't hear many of the participants' contributions and even Ian Hamilton's responses were difficult to hear at times. The evening was a bit frustrating. Participation was lively and Ian Hamilton, an interesting character. I enjoyed his discussion of his brand of wordsmithing ("in the basement") and his opinions of the publishing business.

    Look forward to returning to the group after taking a hiatus for the summer. Trying to get the book finished.
