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.
