Subject: American Gods
Finished reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman - overall I enjoyed
it, but I found the end 'climax' not as thrilling as I'd hoped.
Still worth a good read, and I didn't pick some of the plot twists
towards the end.
Next book is Revelation Space, by Alastair Reynolds
Next book will be Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, I think, which has the best opening line I've ever read:
"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold."
I do not blame her ire, though. I've always found her books to be extremely well crafted. The effort she must put into them doesn't deserve nastiness.
Why would anyone give a flying fuck what some nameless fuckwit on amazon thought?
She's had a lot of grief in her life... I can't imagine.
And she lost a 6 year old daughter to leukemia years ago.
I suspect, tho she's no stranger to grief, it's probably rough going for her to be middle aged and suddenly all alone. (esp since she and her hubby were HS sweethearts and married young)
Why would anyone give a flying fuck what some nameless fuckwit on
Exactly. If she can't handle criticism from random strangers, she shouldn't be anywhere *near* the Internet.
Aw... it might be nice to see her artfully tell people interesting ways they may fuck off.
less talk more beer.
I doubt if she loses any sleep over some nameless fuckwit on the Internet.
And I find that most people who don't like her work don't like it because they don't get it. Dr Dan denegrates her work, yet he's never read any of it- which seems kind of ignorant to me for such an intelligent man... *shrugs*
Then again, if he DID read it, I don't think he'd get it. He's not that deep.
