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

Living with Shakespeare: Actors, Directors, and Writers on Shakespeare in Our Time
Susannah Carson
The Subtle Knife
Philip Pullman
Progress: 116/326 pages
The Green Man
Kingsley Amis

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!
