English version

9th-15th March

The end of week eleven of the Reading Project. Here's what I've read this week:

A Man of Means (P. G. Wodehouse)

A fun little collection of linked stories, dealing with a young man who comes into money. As he's also both rather self-centred and quite weak, he ends up entangled with various young women and their schemes. We aren't expected to fully sympathise with him, but seeing his apparent dooms and his lucky escapes provides a fair bit of amusement. Not Wodehouse's finest work, but an enjoyable little collection.

Goblintown Justice (Matt Forbeck)

A workmanlike short noir story in a dystopian fantasy world. As with a lot of noir, the resolution made me feel rather like I'd wasted my time, as things just sort of dissipate with a shrug.


I read 2 books, I had 125 last week, so 123 are left over.
