Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

Currently reading

The Book Thief
Markus Zusak
Pontypool Changes Everything
Tony Burgess
Under My Skin - Charles de Lint I love De Lint's novels, so this was a must-read for me.

A little more juvenile than his usual, and more specifically set in America (most of his stories are set "somewhere in North America" and often have recognizable bits of Eastern Ontario where both he and I grew up), but this is explicitly set in Southern California.

Many of the characters are clearly related to, or even appearing in, those of earlier novels - "the cousins", shape-changers or skin-walkers, appear often, especially various of the Crow clan and Coyote.

In the end, a pleasant and rapid read, but without much depth.
