What Are You Reading? (September 2019)

Seems time for a new thread since were a good ways into September.

Im reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, about a teenager with Autism who sets about trying to solve the murder of a dog. Its pretty brilliant, and sad, and inspirational.

^ Yiss!

And then you'll have the pleasure of forcing yourself to watch the David Lynch movie, the SyFy mini-series, and the Jodorowsky's Dune documentary ...

I quickly finished Curious Incident and am now reading How Music Works by David Byrne and am teeing up Dune Messiah next.

Finished:

While the whole revisionist approach to superhero stories is getting beaten to death in all forms of media, I still found this very entertaining. It's nice to rip through a lean book in a handful of days after spending about a month to finish a 1600 page fantasy epic (Brandon Sanderson's Oathbringer).

I have the DVD in my massive unwatched pile. I may watch it after just to see how things are actually pronounced as opposed to what I'm imagining.

Really enjoying it so far!

It's a doozy. Good that you haven't seen it yet; I couldn't stop imagining the characters as looking and sounding like their movie counterparts.

Re: What Are You Reading? (September 2019)

reading the Terror, man those poor people..... have not seen the show or heard how this turns out but my suspicion is this ends well for all of them... can't imagine the horror of being stuck on the ice for so damn long with no fresh food or real hope of rescue...

I'm in the 6th Dune book and I havent seen any of the movies or tv shows either. Its going to be a trip to actually hear how some of the stuff is pronounced.

Sounds like a good book! If you enjoy historical nonfiction, Endurance, about Shackleford's expedition, is gripping as all fuck.

Re: What Are You Reading? (September 2019)

Finished:

A different kind of book that I usually read. This is a gothic mystery (the author is heavily influenced by writers like Agatha Christie, Patricia Highsmith, and Daphne du Maurier, especially her novel Rebecca ). I quite enjoyed it though. At times I feared I was getting myself into the book equivalent of a Lifetime movie, but it ended up having more of an edge (and there was no unneeded romance subplot that you a Lifetime movie would've had). It sounds like Ruth Ware's earlier books (Woman in Cabin 10 and In a Dark Dark Place) have had more acclaim so I should check them out at some point.
