I watched the show (found out about it via someone on LJ) and afterwards downloaded the book and audiobook.

I don't think the writing style is all that good, and I'm really wondering about some of the scenes that are written very romantically (why not just go all the way? It's your own book!) but I'm enjoying it. I like that there's much more info than what the series gave us, I'm already planning to rewatch the series after I finish reading. I was somewhat shocked to find so many shippable Childermass/Segundus bits so early on!

Even though I'm reading the footnotes they irritate me - I think I've enjoyed just one part of one of them so far. I'm only reading them in case some happen to have info good for fic purposes. I like the alternate spelling though, frankly I think we should all strive to spell English differently than the way school says we should...

By the way, when I looked in the library for the audiobook version (which I am listening to in Swedish), I saw that the only other language they had it in was Serbo-Croatian. It seems like it must be really popular then, eh?
