I haven't read Gormenghast trilogy for 30 years so do tell us how it strikes you on a second reading. I loved it enormously!


I haven't read Gormenghast at all and it looks like I am in a tiny minority so I think I had better see if I can get a copy from the library!
I think I read Guppies for Tea but that was a long time ago so Drowning Rose will have to go on the list.

I don't know many people who have even heard of Gormenghast. I bought Titus Groan when I was a teenager, based on the Gothic looking cover. It took me years to read it and love it, and then I had to hunt for the other two in the trilogy. A French friend, who reads a lot, stunned me when she commented that our seven cats (at the time), eddying around my legs at feeding time, reminded her of the sea of white cats in Titus Groan! That's one of the reasons she's a good friend! Fellow travellers!
