today’s lesson
posted by soe 1:51 am

When you’re having a hard time getting into a book you’re in the middle of and it has nothing to do with the story itself, you might be better off putting the book down for a bit and picking up a different one.

That is to say, I have put put aside Shades of Grey in favor of Douglas Adams’ Life, the Universe, and Everything. There’s nothing wrong with the Fforde novel; I’m just not finding myself drawn in in the way I normally am with his writing. I assume it’s not him, but me. In the meantime, more erudite British humor…

It ‘could’ be him. :<) I'm often stunned when a writer I think I love just doesn't impress me in a book or even two. But it sure does happen.

I think Shade of Grey is a bit darker than the other two series. What do you think of Jane?

Life, the Universe, and Everything is delightful fun.
