iwerewolf: new here

*pokes head in and looks around* 

Hi, just joined today and thought I'd introduce myself. 

Erm, my name is Batwoman and my favorite color is clear with transparent polka dots. 

Ok seriously though....

I just read Restroree ( blame my sister for making me read it, remind me to hurt her for that) and I have to say I love it.  I finished it Monday and I've re-read chapter 17 and a few pages into 18 because I don't want it to end.  Why oh why was this the only book written?  and just as importantly, why isn't this going to be made into a movie? 

I ordered my own copy the other day and will be giving my sister's back next time I see her.  I'll most likely re-read it as soon as my copy arrives.  This was such a great book, I can't believe that woman ended it where she did and didn't write more.  that's so wrong. 

This could really keep going.  Dang I want more. 

I went on the search for fanfic (I was that desperate the other night) but didn't find any.  I'm not knocking fanfic, shoot, I write enough of my own, to me anything else written about it can only be done by the author.  That may sound strange but this has to be the only thing where I won't be able to enjoy anything written by fans nearly as much as if it were written by Anne herself.  That's not to say I wouldn't enjoy something written by someone else, say her son for instance, where she colaborated. 

So I've got a couple questions then, aside from the above, does anyone know of any Restoree fanfic out there?  Granted I just googled and didn't try other search engines.  But I've found there is very little out there about this book. 

ok so that was just 1 question. 

That's pretty much it.  I haven't read any of the other books, not that into dragons so the others don't sound apealing.  I'm more into sci-fi than fantasy.  Course I did read "Here There Be Dragons" but that was a Trek book.  anyway, as I was saying, I probably won't have much to say since I don't know the other books.

I fell heavily for Restoree when I first read it in the 70s too. I've not read it since so perhaps I should. Like everyone else I would rec. the Freedom series. Although it isn't the same it's not fantasy it's definitely sci.fi. I have to say though, if you can bring yourself to try the Pern books you probably won't be sorry. :-)

If it helps, my initial reading was in 88 (I believe) but due to many factors I didn't get very far before I had to give the book back to my sister. She had borrowed it from a friend. So glad she found it and gave it to me to finish. Now I just have to give it back to her without starting it again. I'm going to try to wait until my copy comes in the mail before I re-read this.

I just can't get away from it. Even at work, the story creaps into my head as I'm doing things.
