Recent Reads: Corrections Miscellany Rotten

 

Meh... A knock-off of Updike's Rabbit series.  I got to page 244 (which is about halfway) and was bored.  The whole thing seems rather indulgent.  The characters don't provoke or inspire or elicit much reaction (except Chip).  As I was reading it, I kept thinking to myself: Who Cares?



I love books like this!  It combines two of my favourite things: books and trivia!  Lots of little literary gems here.  Nice layout, nice images.  The content flows nicely - it doesn't just feel like a "dump" of tidbits.





I kind of liked this... the content is right up my alley (see above), and there was much that was amusing and/or interesting, but there are two problems with this book:  no table of contents and no index.  Still, it's a good bathroom book.
