Me: reading page 2 of Naked in Death "Huh, how did I not know that the In Death books were set in the future?"
Twin: not interested at all "Oh?"
Me: "Yeah, she's talking about airtraffic and airbuses."
Twin: looking at me like I'm an idiot "Jennie, dear, some kinds of airplanes are called airbuses."
Me: "Oh. No, I think it's the future..."
I read another 2 pages.
Me: "HA! Now she's talking about droid cocker spaniels! Definitely the future."
Twin: derisive snort
I guess most people just know what the deal is with these books right off the bat. It is a really well-known series. But there's no cover blurb--just a big photo of NR on the back. And the cover illustration doesn't give any clue that it's futuristic. It's a little misleading. This annoys me. I like to have some idea what I'm getting into when I start a book.
