English version

10th - 16th August

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

A wizard alone (Diane Duane)

I found this one a much easier read than the last, despite the focus on grief. It was well-paced and there was plenty going on, but not enough to be confusing. The presence of an important character with autism was nice to see, and some interesting ideas came through. That being said, having Darryl be autistic and an actual saint causes complications - we end up with no idea what an ordinary autistic wizard might be like, which is a shame. I do also feel like it runs into slightly awkward territory (a perpetual dilemma with minority representation) because the only autistic character is innocence incarnate, and that raises shades of the Noble Savage. It's not really a criticism, just something that came to mind as I read.

魔法使いの嫁 v. 1 (ヤマザキコレ)

A pleasantly weird supernatural story; probably a romance, but it's hard to tell so far. The pace is gentle but not dragging, and I like the peculiar world of magic and its creatures that's slowly building up (including a nice Lovecraft shout-out). There's still plenty I don't really understand, but I don't mind. The characters are intriguing and rather guarded so far, and I look forward to finding out more about them.


I read 2 books this week, I had 78 last week, so 76 are left over. I have 26 books to read in 19 weeks.
