Well, I've finished the book, and here are my thoughts!

It was...simply amazing. All of the characters were so engaging, even the villains...Miss Havashim is truly pitiable, such a horrible woman and yet she suffered so much it was hard to truly hate her. And Estella, so cold and so controlled by her mother's ways...and the hero, Pip, he was quite resilient. He suffered even more than Lord David in the previous book, and he still turned out just fine in the end!

The story follows him from childhood to adulthood, a shorter timeline than in Lord David. But that's fine with me~ It still took plenty of time to develop the characters and situations.

As for the ending...it was bittersweet. Pip didn't get to be with the girl of his dreams, but he seemed okay with it.

Once again, thank you so much for one of the most amazing Festival presents I've ever recieved!

Hey, girl~

Been meaning to ask. Everything all right with you, over there? Anything we could do to help?

So, hey ... I just wanted to thank you.

I don't know what you said to her, exactly, but Demi told me she talked with you, and -- whatever it was, thank you for saying it. I really thought she was going to want to leave, and I don't really know how I would have dealt with that, so ... yeah. I know you didn't do it for me, but still. Thanks.

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but -- it's clear enough we need to talk about you and Kimberly.

Mark, are you encouraging her? I've told her rather frankly in the past that I don't approve of her behavior with you. Making you uncomfortable in front of guests, that little stunt on New Year's -- all of that. So I suppose I would just like to know why, exactly, she doesn't seem to have heard a word I said.

Now, I promised I'd recommend the place after Aes and I caused such a scene last night, arriving so unexpectedly -- so if anyone in Razen has been looking for a quiet place to share a meal with friends or family, the Waterfront Horizon is a wonderful little cafe. It's newly opened, actually, and I can personally assure you that the chef there does wonderful things with snapper, and I tell you, Aes and I went through so many of their garlic biscuits, neither of us were able to finish our plates. The place is south of the harbor on the pier, a bit out of the way, but well worth finding.

I heard an interesting rumour, today; apparently, Tallys and I are going to have a bit of competition for awhile. A traveling troupe of magicians for hire set up a stand not four blocks down on Henfeather Lane, last week, and apparently they've been making quite a spectacle of themselves. I overheard a few window shoppers chatting about how today they blew soap bubbles shaped like animals, and animated them as they floated about. There's a trick I think I can safely say I haven't seen. I wonder if they did the sounds effects, too?

It sounds to me like more of a carnival act than a proper business venture, but it might explain where some of our regulars have been spending their time.

It still seems wrong to celebrate. The timing of it all, the month.

... I could use that as my excuse, but, no. What's really bothering me, of course, is Connor. If he groveled any better he'd be slithering after me on his belly by now. He's always there. He speaks when spoken to, and the rest of the time, well. He just wears that look. That wide-eyed injured look that asks the question everyone is asking.

Twenty-six, today, and hardly getting any younger.

I'm so tired of this.
