But that's what you must do, Father. You must imagine yourself swooshing and then you will swoosh.
That "some reason" is the Cruella movie, where we learn Cruella is set on a path on vengeance by her mom being killed by dalmatians who by the way happen to be Pongo and Perdita's parents. I honestly think that's almost as crazy as the book sequel.
Personally, I feel like Gene Wolfe gets better the more you slow down. He is often writing for his audience to savor a moment or investigate an idea. That can take time for a reader to do.When I take almost a full week to read 400 pages, that's not an entirely positive thing.
Boy, did I ever. Favorite book of the month so far, but let's see what Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff has to say about that. His Nevernight trilogy was a big win for me, so I'm expecting good things hereLet's try Horror Films of the 1970s by John Kenneth Muir. I read his book on the SFF films of the 70s last year and quite enjoyed it, so hopefully I'll enjoy this
I read through Taran Wanderer, the fourth book of the Chronicles of Prydain. Short review: It was excellent. Thanks, Loki, for bringing it to my attention.
I knew about this series, a bit from that Disney movie I never saw, but probably more from people here talking about it, from time to time. At one point, let's say eight years ago, I read the first book. It was ok. Years later, I tried to read the series, and gave up in the middle of the second book. Too much standard fantasy,
Finished this and I think it could have been half as long. It's important to share the stories of these women but they didn't come off as unique individuals, just repetitive and depressing. Glad I read it but not sure if I recommend it? But feel like I should? A difficult one.
I hadn't heard of this book either, but I just looked it up and it sounds fantastic. Gonna have to place a hold at the library, thanks for the recommendation.I also wrapped up Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket by Hilma Wolitzer. I'd never read any of her stuff before but heard this story collection was great.
