as previously mentioned, i seem to have forgotten, these past few months, to update my reading list. so here it is, what i've read since may:

1) grimoire, by kim wilkins
2) the penelopiad, by margaret atwood*
3) nights at the circus, by angela carter*
4) superman: red son, by mark miller et al*
5) batman: the long halloween, by jeph loeb & tim sale
6) arcadia, by tom stoppard*
7) the perfect fool, by stewart lee
8) harry potter and the deathly hallows, by j.k. rowling*
9) tarzan & jane: how to thrive in the new corporate jungle, by margot katz (my mum!)

* = read for book group.

so what's with computer games? there are "1st person shooters" and "third person shooters". i have yet to see a "second person shooter", where you see the action from the perspective of the people to whom you are doing the killing.

was the margaret atwood any good? i have read cat's eye twice, and liked it at the same time as wanting to smash her in the head.

on the other hand, your question about 2nd person shooters was genius, something i've never thought about, but someone should be put onto it post haste!

margaret atwood was ok - parts were great, but overall, hmmm... the only other one of hers i've read is handmaid's tale, and it's been a while since i read that, but i enjoyed (is that the right word?) it at the time (11 years go?), when i was really into distopian stuff.

2nd persons of the world, unite!

cat's eye she was a bit "oh, you young women today, don't know what you're talking about, what you really want to do is hate everything about yourself and have empty relationships with misogynists, that's the ticket!"

yeah. that sounds like atwood.

i can, though, wholeheartedly recommend 'nights at the circus', by angela carter. read it.

Tarzan & Jane
