It's a terribly wordy sort of debauchery.
Three Dorothy Sayers novels in 27 hours. I blame tamago.

Oh, but such fun.... Are you reading truepenny's lj, I think it is? She has been doing a deconstruction of the series in order, though she's only up to Clouds of Witness. Enjoyable to read.

No, precisely because I've never read them before. :-) Reading Gaudy Night certainly illuminated a number of quotes in Tam Lin, I must admit...

The spring and summer before I got married, I read all of the Wimsey novels, in order of Wimsey chronology ... it is a lovely sort of debauchery ... except for the anti-Semitism in Whose Body. That stuck in the throat a bit.

Don't forget Thrones, Dominions. Very nice; modern sensibility in the writing but true to the characters.
