June 2018 Report

I read a decent chunk of things — and rated most of them pretty well. I don’t think I had anything under a 3 — which is the first in a few months (this year, maybe?). The only regret I have is that while the spirit was willing, the flesh was weak and tired, and the writing about what I read just didn’t get done. I’d also planned a few posts that weren’t just reflections on a particular reading experience that didn’t get finished enough to see the light of day. Maybe July will be more productive. Regardless, I’m calling June a winner.

So, here’s what happened here in June.

  1. You read but did not review “The Eyre Affair”? I read that and thought it tremendously clever, but found I had exhausted my taste for that sort of cleverness when I tried to read the next book in the series. Would be interested in your thoughts.

    • I’m still trying to decide what I thought of it, really. I mean…I liked it, but . . . I think there was just too much going on. If he’d left out the Kitchen Sink, but left everything else in, it might have been okay (whatever the kitchen sink may be). Have you tried Jodi Taylor’s Just One Damned Thing After Another? I just finished it, and it’s like a restrained version of this — without the literary references. Sorta.

      (sorry it took so long to reply, I only gave up on trying to do a whole post on The Eyre Affair a couple of days ago)
