Last night I finished Homer's Odyssey. It took me forever. Seriously, I read Atlas Shrugged, a 1100-page monolith of a book, in half the time it took me to read this. I liked it, but I have a feeling I'd prefer a more straightforward translation than the flowery, show-offy one I read.

Currently reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. I'm about a third of the way through it, and I'm enjoying it so far. I have two complaints though: the protagonist is a nine-year-old girl, and I think King made her a little too intelligent and mature to be believable. Yeah, she breaks down and cries a lot, like any nine-year-old would when lost in the woods, but her thoughts and inner monologues are too "grown-up." It's hard to take seriously. The other complaint is more minor, and a little petty and nerdish of me: Trisha (the protagonist) loses her balance and rolls down a rocky hill. Her Gameboy breaks, but her Walkman doesn't. Gameboys are far more durable than Walkmans. Hell, they're more durable than most buildings. I call bullshit.

Sharp objects by Gillian Flynn - it has SI in it but so much more - brilliant book I couldn't put down.

Just finished Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn. Such a powerful novel about abuse, it's one of those books where you think about it for a long time afterwards.

I'm reading The Walking Dead: Rise Of the Governor by Robert Kirkman.

I'm about 2/3 the way through and I think its a half decent read if you like books about zombies and blowing peoples heads off!

I didn't get past the first few chapters, just couldn't get into it but it might be just me as i've been really picky with books recently.

I'm reading Never Have I Ever by Sara Shepherd. It's the second book of a series. The first book finished too abruptly, the last chapter didn't even conclude, just came to a stop. It left me desperate to read the second book, which wasn't published until the end of September this year, by which time I had begun another book, so I've only now got round to reading the second one. (Ramblings over)



If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off!!!

Just finished Dissolution By C. J. Sansom which was okay, but not great. And am just about finished Confessions of a GP By Benjamin Daniel which is really funny and a nice easy read. Think I will finish it then get on with the tidying.
