Hi, fellow Dunnett readers.  The Dorothy Dunnett Society ddsociety has started up a little LJ community dunnettcentral.  Hope to see you there!

I'm making this post primarily so suffolkgirl and I have somewhere to record our thoughts on re-reading Niccolo Rising without spoiling those of you reading it for the first time. cut for spoilery chat of what it's like going back to the first book after reading to the end of the seriesCollapse )

ETA: Spoilers for the WHOLE SERIES in comments.
Current Mood:

Hi everyone, I found out about this community on bop_radar's LJ, and have come along to join in.  I'm a long time Dunnett fan - I first read Niccolo Rising about 15 years ago and have been meaning to re-read the Niccolo series for a long time, so hopefully joining here will kick-start me into finally doing it.  After book 4 I had to wait to read the next one until it was published, so I've never read them all in one sequence.
I also have a copy of the Dorothy Dunnett Companion which explains historical references and translates some of the quotations used in her books - it covers the first 5 Niccolo books, so if some reference is confusing you I'm happy to look it up and see if it's answered in the Companion.

Warning: I may have been spoiled for a crucial point that seems important to the rest of the novel -- whoops -- so you probably shouldn't read this unless you've finished the whole thing.

This post is a placeholder for spoilery discussion of the first book House of Niccolo. Spoilers for the whole book (eventually) in the comments.
