Well, it looks like Destination Unknown will qualify for this one - I think qualifies as a "political thriller."

LoL. Bottom of the barrel, but yes it is a political thriller. Seems there are more positives to that book than I thought.
Oh God, I am so grateful you're getting *something* (other than a hangover) out of this book.

Wouldn't burning a book in effigy mean burning something that looks like a book? Like a straw book?

Yes, but it seemed like a lot to ask people to make a straw book - and since we don't want anyone actually burning real books, I took creative license and stretched the meaning of 'effigy' to mean the imaginary version of the book one hates.

It's a big stretch, but eh... ;)

Oh ok. I didn't get it.

Aaaaaah, I had an inkling this would be Door # 2!!! And so fitting as I've come back from the Guy Fawkes fireworks display. :D

By "Set in the UK, political thrillers, involving any monarchy or revolution" do you mean "set in the UK" *or* "political thrillers" *or* "involving any monarchy or revolution"? Or is the book supposed to contain *all* those elements?

It's 'or' for all of them. Sorry - as you can imagine, there was a bit of to-ing and fro-ing while we hammered out what the tasks/books would be and we didn't pay things like grammar and punctuation the attention they deserve. :)

I'm update the post to read better - thanks!
