It must be quite satisfying to have tied up a loose story end anyway!

This part was fun:

Not long afterward, Dick and Fanny and Randy were out on the street with Chastity, one after another, and all very sore in the rump area, having been switched thoroughly for getting Madame Hush's questions wrong. (The one about what came first, the chicken or the egg, seemed in fact to have two wrong answers, and being Christians, loosley speaking, apparently they should have known the correct answer).

I like how the humour is subtly being hinted at "off-page". It reminds me a great deal of certain authors whose names I can't place right now. Seems rather British.

"The earth was rushing past like a river or a sea below him. Trees and water, and green grass, hurried away beneath. A great roar of wild animals rose as they rushed over the Zoological Gardens, mixed with a chattering of monkeys and a screaming of birds; but it died away in a moment behind them. And now there was nothing but the roofs of houses, sweeping along like a great torrent of stones and rocks. Chimney-pots fell, and tiles flew from the roofs..."

"Chastity was sitting on a stool in one of the many aisles of books, not only that, but also on a rather painful horn of a dilemma; though not the horn of a rhinoceros, thankfully, that would truly have been very painful, she supposed."

she supposes correctly. Laughing
