Speaking of books, what have I read… This week?
Well, I finished “Tarzan of the Apes”, and loved it. It’s got it’s cringe moments (as you might expect from a book who’s social mores and stereotypes are 99 years old). The maid, “Esmerelda” specifically. Otherwise, though, it’s still a fantastic adventure story that holds up well, and is, for all its ‘superman’ feel to it, has a believable vibe to it that was enjoyable.

I finished “Autumn” by David Moody last night. Despite [Bad username: elhulk] having recommended it, I’m not sure I’ll pick up the others: I may read ‘em if they’re thrown at me, but it definitely didn’t pull me in, and nothing really … happened. Just a few people cowering in the corner of the room at the end of the world.

I’ve ended up, with the last of the books from the box’o’freebies, with “The Crysalids” and “Ravenheart”. Everyone knows Crysalids, but I’ve not read it in years, possibly since grade ten or so. But Ravenheart I can’t start because it’s book three of David Gemmell’s “Rigante” trilogy. Fortunately, I’ve read a ton of Gemmell in the past and am a fan. It’ll be no major hardship to order up book one and two.

One of my kindle freebies is, and you may laugh at me now, C.L. Bevill : Bubba and the Dead Woman which is a semi-comedic (to me, at least) mystery novel set in the deep south, who's protaganist is an ex-millitary, now-suspect, mechanic hillbilly. I shit you not. I'm really enjoy it. And, free! So, what the hell is there to lose? And it's on my phone, so I can read it whenever I feel I have a minute or two, or longer.
