I rarely re-read a novel.

I can relate to John Otway when he said "and when you get to the end, you get the feeling you've lost a friend. You try to read it again. But it isn't really the same."

But I got the audio book of Rendezvous with Rama to listen to on my not inconsiderable commute.

I last read it when I was about 13 and remember reading it in almost one sitting.

Listening to it on the way to work today I really got into it again - and remembered very little of the detail (although I almost felt a sense of recognition when they entered Rama for the first time!)

Do you re-read books?
