5th - 25th October
The end of week forty-three of the Reading Project. Here's what I've read this past three weeks:
Hey, I finally finished a freaking book!
るるいえあんてぃーく (内山 靖二郎)
A fun collection of "replays" of Call of Cthulhu games. These are basically the opposite of dramatised readings, I suppose? It's not a novelisation in the way some fantasy books are transparently based on D&D sessions, but more like reading a playscript, with a mixture of in-character dialogue and out-of-character commentary. It sounds weird, but it really isn't hard to get used to.
The stories are interesting, and I particularly enjoyed getting a Japanese perspective on a setting that I normally only see through American or British eyes. The GM has written three original scenarios with a basis in Japanese culture, and there are a lot of references in both story and commentary to Japanese tropes. The second story is deliberately trying to evoke a "splatter horror" feel, and so I liked it rather less than the other two, but the premise was still interesting. I also liked the little discussions after each game where they talk about what worked, what didn't, and what to work on for next session. I get the impression the scenarios were rather linear, but it's not really fair to conclude that from a writeup like this.
This took me three full weeks to read, partly because to read Japanese I really need to sit down and concentrate, and it's been quite hard work, with an awful lot of unusual vocabulary. Still, worth it! I'll keep the next four volumes for another time, though...
I read 1 book in three weeks, I had 74 last time I posted, so 73 are left over. I have 23 books to read in 9 weeks.
Yeah, that's not happening. And yet, onwards we go.
