An ongoing list of my 2008 reading:
What will be next? Very Good, Jeeves? The Odyssey?
- The Miserable Mill (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book the Fourth) by Lemony Snicket
- The endless, near-blind stupidity of the adults in the lives of the Baudelaire orphans (chased from home to home, guardian to guardian by the unscrupulous, Baudelaire-fortune-hungering Count Olaf) is becoming somewhat exhausting. The tone and design of the books is delightful; if only their narratives were less formulaic. [Tuesday, January 1, 2008 ***]
