My favorite books of all time. I am blessed to have been able to enjoy them.
It's a joy to know there are many other fans out there !
I have just finished reading Gemini, the last book in The House of Niccolo Series, and felt overwhelmed. I had been reading the novels, chronologically, over many years and was always enveloped by them; intellectually engaged, as well as entertained, by the layers upon layers of history and Niccolo's story. I decided to research the author and was surprised, then saddened, to learn of her death in 2001. Searching further, I was pleased to discover the Dorothy Dunnett Society and its mandate to keep the writing, the history and the particulars of Dunnett's novels alive. Thank you.
I just joined the Society. Is it too late to receive a copy of the Newsletter?
[Kris, a warm welcome to you! Every time someone joins the Dorothy Dunnett Society, they receive a copy of the most recent edition of our magazine, Whispering Gallery – so you’ll be fine.]
I devoured the Niccolo series in one long binge in 1993. This time around I am savoring them more slowly and find I am enjoying them with greater depth. Since I already have the basic plot of what happens down, I can better appreciate all the subtle suggestions, hints and innuendos. But I still have questions, like why Katelina helps Jordan at the end of Niccolo and appears to despise Nicholas?
