The Postman Knock #111
Hello, me dears!
This was a less dramatic week for us, but still a very busy one. We've socialized 5 days out of 7. That's a LOT. I ve cooked and baked and cleaned and sawed wood (because Alex had to rest his shoulder) and chased a hungry fox away running right up at her and screaming my head off while it was trying to catch one of our chickens.
Anyway, here is what
THE HOOKER AND THE HERMIT was fantastic, and I wrote about it in my review. ALL FALL DOWN was mildly disappointing, and I explained why here.
I LISTENED to:
I was expecting more from ANCILLARY JUSTICE considering all the awards it won, however despite an interesting plot it felt a bit detached. Still good, though.
Fantastic concept, but the writing was so dense and uninspiring I had to DNF it quarter way in. I thought first it's the translation, but I read Russian reviews as well, and it seems the writing is problematic in both languages.
Thanks to the publisher!
FROM AUDIBLE FOR REVIEW:
I am listening to it now and it's equally funny and sad. The author narrates the book herself, and I am enjoying it immensely.
And this is it for me.
How about you?
