Bit of a disappointment. I liked the book’s style (the whole story is made up mostly of letters, e-mails and online discussions), but at the end I was pretty angry. I believe the story could have ended a lot sooner. I think I found this from some recycling shelf (so I got this for free which is great). I love Ahern’s books in general, but this irritated me a bit.
By the way I’m reading for the first time in my life two books at the same time… I had to take a small break from The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a good book but it’s pretty damn big. Tomorrow I will continue with Monte Cristo, at least for a couple of days
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
This is easily the funniest, most enjoyable book that I have read for months. I’m giving it 10/10 points: yes, it’s that good. Though I have greatly enjoyed other Discworld books, such as the Lost Continent, this is the funniest, most enjoyable, and even most engrossing book that I have yet read of that magnificent series. Going Postal was probably the best way to recover from the extreme trauma that I had caused myself by grinding through five of Robert Jordon’s Wheel of Time series. I mean, imagine having a book with a plot that actually moves and has likeable, well-fleshed out characters.
Moist Von Lipwig is one of my favorite types of fictional characters: a rougish con man, that has never really harmed anyone, but is not too far gone down the road of crime that he can’t be reclaimed for good and puts his life and well-being on the line for the sake of others. The secondary characters such as Miss Dearborn, Mr. Groat, Stanley, the Smoking Gnu, and others make this a thoroughly charming comic/fantasy adventure that will split your sides and warm your heart.
Nijigahara Holograph Ch.11
This one was a bit of a mindfuck. A weird manga. I don’t even know if I liked Nijigahara Holograph that much. I loved the art and in a way all the depressive stuff but I’m not so sure I liked the whole supernatural thing, mostly because I didn’t see any point for it.
