Beanbag Love

I read. I write. I talk about reading and writing. That is when I'm not driving kids somewhere or teaching them. Married, educated, domesticated. I really enjoy the friends I've met through a variety of different message boards and venues regarding reading and authors. I try to take a positive view when I write reviews but sometimes I can't. Those times are few and far between, but they do exist. I'm mostly an old softy, though. I think so anyway.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Susanna Clarke
A Well Favored Gentleman - Christina Dodd Confusing paranormal elements.

Bizarre and somewhat squicky ... seduction.

Felt like it could have been much shorter.

Vague bad guys with a nefarious plot that makes little sense.

Deus ex machina ending.

For all that, some of it was charming. Too much weighing it down, though. I will try Dodd again, but I'll look for another sale price.
