I have to admit that I had trouble with the Soldier books the first time
through.  I always knew that Wolfe was smarter than me, but here some
things seemed so far over my head that I found it frustrating reading.
Then I found an unabridged cassette recording of _Soldier of the Mist_.
Hearing that read to me well *really* increased my appreciation (and
understanding) of the book.  BTW, I think the company that made the tapes
was The Listening Ear, and I also thonk they're defunct now.  I found a
copy at the Rochester (NY) Public Library.

On another note: I recently saw a CD-ROM game called City of Lost Children.
 Does anyone know if it has anything to do with the movie that's been
mentioned here (and which I have yet to find)?
