It’s probably not a coincidence that since starting work as a copywriter, my blogging has become sporadic. Typing all day does make coming home and blogging less appealing, but it’s something that makes me happy, so I’ll find the time.
I’ve continued reading and, particularly during a trip to Japan in October, managed to get through quite a few novels, quick reviews below:
A Comedy of Errors – William Shakespeare – Farcical, Confusing, a bit Weak
Beloved – Toni Morrison -Haunting, Creepy, Sad
Heart of Darkness – Joseph Conrad – Unnerving, Dark, Depressing
Angela’s Ashes – Frank McCourt – Heartbreaking, Warm, Funny,
Vanity Fair – William Makepeace Thackeray – Well-Drawn Characters, Witty, Protracted
One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest – Ken Kesey – Convoluted, Off-kilter, Strangely Uplifting
The Awakening – Kate Chopin – Utterly Bloody Pointless
Franny and Zooey – JD Salinger – Overwrought, Pretentious, Dull
Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll – Marvelously Mad, Imaginative, Wonderful
I’m nearly finished reading A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, review to follow, and trying to get back to regular blogging.
I think I might track down some of the more upbeat titles, to match my overall mood these days 🙂 watch this space!
