OK - I'm on a mission to post in a novel thread every day. I remember reading this in the early 90s right when it was published and I remember loving it. But I can't remember exactly what went on. I do recall the Fates and I was fascinated by all that. Is everyone's memory as horrible as mine? I was a new mom during those days, so I was preoccupied. Anyhow, I picked this up at a thrift store recently - hardcover, looks like it was never touched, and I am going to re-read it someday. What are your thoughts on this one?
