	Our local reading group, The Fictionados, decided it would be 
wise to reread the first three books before trying to tackle EXODUS. The 
two year gap being the main reason. Wolfe is brutal to readers who forget 
critical details. I am now in LAKE and am finding the experience much 
richer and more satisfying. I was still trying to learn the rules of the 
Whorl on the first pass. Now I can dig deeper and delve into some of the 
fun mysteries Wolfe has buried. Some of the comments on this archive are 
driving me to read EXODUS but I know that a careful reading of the 
precursors will pay off when I get there. I am reading all the "spoilers" 
posted. Wolfe has never been about what happens next. Getting there is 
the fun.
