This chapter is pretty short. He reaches New York City, and meets a couple people who actually get names, but they’re quite possibly the blandest people in the story, simply pretending everything’s fine and drinking wine. 561 more words

“The Sense of an Ending” by Julian Barnes (2011 ) – book review

Still breathing out through my nose since finishing this book ten minutes ago (that was about a year ago, admittedly, but still remember picking up my pen to write this down at the time). 476 more words


Book Review: "Never Never: Part Two"

Things I dislike about “Never Never: Part 2″: The first ten chapters are dragging and boring, mostly filled with Silas reading more old letters he and Charlie wrote to each other and letters Charlie’s father wrote to Charlie. 147 more words


My Prejudice against Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen

Dear all Classics haters,

Please reconsider this book, not for my sake, but for your’s. Your lack of appreciation of long-dead authors is rather alarming. It indicates the presence of a certain boorishness, perhaps a clue to point out your Viking ancestry, full of block-headed advances on peaceful villages that would much rather stay the way they were. 374 more words
