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
The Scar - China Miéville Not, imo, anywhere close to his best. It dragged, and dragged, and ultimately reminded me far too much of Moby-Dick or, The Whale - and not actually because of the "avanc" ("Godwhale") they hunt. It's an extended ocean hunt with no resolution at the end. I'm not letting this stop me from jumping right into [b:Embassytown|9265453|Embassytown|China Miéville|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/518ITSFEWDL._SL75_.jpg|14146240], which I'm already enjoying far more.
