But more than anything, I find it heartening that the book really does live up to its name of being a page turner! Kindle has this amazing feature that allows you to see whether it is being read. The first night figure was 507. Since then I've had a steady flow of 60-70 per day. Given that it was serialised online (where it built up an average readership of 17,000 per day at the very end) I'm not surprised.
I can't help but notice that my only critics so far have been people who (by their own admission) have read only a couple of pages free online. If you're one of these, why not give the book a proper go? You might be surprised. The Mirror Image of Sound is nothing if not full of surprises!
