    Wow! That’s a wonderful result! Congratulations, Stu. A worthy ambition and you’ve made a great success of it.

    I am really unhappy that Caught is out of print. I borrowed my copy and I have to give it back 😦

    What a lovely list of reviews – especially for a novelist whom I’ve seen only mentioned once or twice before across the blogosphere. Thanks so much for organising this. Maybe an annual event??

    I’ve bookmarked this page, Stu, and will come back to it for inspiration. Sadly, I haven’t had time to take part in your Henry Green initiative, only because I was too busy running my Oz Lit month, but it was a brilliant idea, and I’m so pleased to see you’ve gathered all the reviews in one place.

    Congratulations on a successful event, Stu! I regret not joining as I don’t have a copy of Green at hand. I’ve read his first novel, Blindness, years ago and it’s very memorable.

    I started Living last week, but didn’t come close to finishing it in time to post my review during the event. I have to confess I find it a hard slog. The dialect I enjoy. The inexplicable lack of articles makes me want to toss book across room, as Green might write.

    OK, I finished and posted my review of Living:

    Sorry I didn’t get it in on time. But since it might get me kicked off the Green team for good, maybe it’s best that I didn’t get it posted during Green Week.
