"...at a price of 118"

I think something must have gonme wrong there...Or there's rather an excessive mark-up on Duck country.

Cover price here is 16.99, with the actual price in Tescos down to 9.97. Which is moe or less a paperback price, for a book with 766 pages. Seems fairly solidly bound.

Just finished it - I agree about it being a lot better written in various ways than the previous ones. Not in the same league as Ursula Leguin, or Tolkien, or Philip Pullman, but very pleasing most of the time.

I was glad to see JK Rowling having a go at the educational inspectorate who are infesting the system right now.
