As I said I read it when I was 14.

I am now 72 and my memory is not as clear as it was. However when you mentioned the name a picture did come to mind of the character and yes, she was, just as is Janet Napolitano, the archetypal masculine female, without any of the usual feminine graces, big, brutal and heartless. It seems to me that this is sometimes the effect that political power has on a woman.

This was very evident when Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power joined forces to convince Robert Gates and Barack Obama to attack Libya in support of the jihadist rebels in Benghazi. Then Clinton visited Tripoli in person and ordered the murder of Qadhafe which was carried out brutally and recorded. She then went on national television and, her eyes glistening in triumph, crowed "I came. I saw. He died".

"That Hideous Strength" was my favourite of the three books and I am looking forward to being re-acquainted with it.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
