Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Currently reading

At the Mountains of Madness and Other Works of Weird Fiction
H.P. Lovecraft, D.M. Mitchell
Doctor Sleep
Stephen King
Wise Children
Angela Carter

Reading progress update: I've read 74 out of 352 pages.

The Ginger Man - J.P. Donleavy

Okay, perhaps I am just not understanding the satirical nature of the book.

 

Satire = A literary work in which human foolishness or vice is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.

 

I will try to read it with this in mind.

 

This is currently my "after dark" book--during daylight hours, I'm reading The Shining and it's scaring the wits out of me!
