I just wanted to get at ya’ll with a brief apology about the lack of posts over the last couple of days. I’ve been training for a new part of my job over the last little while, and that’s taken up most of my creative energy. I’ve still been reading tons, but when I am it’s just to relax and not with my critical eye at all. I thought about writing a review of one of the books that I recently read (Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier) and the only thing that I could really think to say about it is, “So good! Really good! Violent. But good! Sad. Lot’s of walking.” After writing several variations on that I figured I’d probably just give it a miss. You shouldn’t though! It really is beautiful, and if you have any interest in things set in the civil war era (this book is crazy well researched. Or atleast it seems to be, all the stuff he talked about could have been completely made up and I wouldn’t have known. It felt really authentic to me) or romance or odyssey-like adventures you’d probably love it. It’s well worth the read.
Anyways, I’m going to go read some more. Maybe this one I’ll tell you about? Or maybe not. The world’s a wacky, unpredictable place.
