We Won't Get Fooled Again

Advantages: It's got the Witches in it
Disadvantages: It's the last one.

Having committed to re-read the whole collection in honour of the author there is an argument for saying I should have held off this one, saved it until the end… especially as it had leaked that one of the ends in the book is that of my favourite characte ...
