ECHO is #1 in New Zealand!

Diana just reported on Compuserve that AN ECHO IN THE BONE has knocked Dan Brown's THE LOST SYMBOL out of the #1 spot on the best-seller list in New Zealand.

Go Kiwis! <g>

I am slowly making my way through my first re-read of ECHO. Stopped last night about sixty pages from the end. I will be very interested to see if my reaction to the events of the last few chapters changes much on the second time through. I suspect it very well might, since I was in a state of shock the first time, and there has been a TREMENDOUS amount of discussion on Compuserve about the last part of the book, which is really helping me to put those events in perspective.

When I read FC for the first time, I didn't really like it. When I did my re-read, I found I actually enjoyed it more than the first time. My sister had my copy of Echo right now, but I'm looking forward to reading it again.

The first time I read DiA, I wasn't crazy about it, but on my re-read I loved it. It helped too that I had Voyager to read right away. In the case with Echo, it's going to be very hard waiting to get this cliffhanger fixed!

HA. I am proud to say that I contributed to this NZ milestone! It's the first Diana Gabaldon novel I've bought new (and I own all her books bar the 3 Lord John short stories and Through the Stones (aka Outlandish Companion). Probably because I actually get money this year, yay for student allowance!
