The House of Rust: A Novel | Khadija Abdalla Bajaber

This is a staggering, challenging, beautiful book and one of the best I‘ve read in a long time. Seeking to rescue her father, Aisha risks the sea with little skill and no knowledge of the dangers. Guided by a cat, she faces three monsters. On her return she must choose the life others want for her, or to seek the promised House of Rust.

“Her destiny stretched before her. And eager, and afraid, and whole of heart, she went to meet it.”

A collection of 3 interesting short stories, one of which is being followed up with a series of novels, which I will look out for.

Mehso-so

Surprisingly cute stories to add to the end of what was mostly a very disturbing "romance"

#October #20in4 #Readathon Check-In: 6 hours.

A BIT short of 20 hours, right? 😁
Well, for me, the #20in4 #readathons are a nudge to me to make more time for reading as on any usual workday - on a 'normal' day? 30 mins daily, if I'm lucky... 🙄
So, 6 hours aren't THAT bad, if you think about it... 😉

Those pronouns and their rapid changes give me whiplash. And the two women are about to go to a party and need to tread that pronoun-minefield extra carefully.

Earlier in the book: 'sie' and 'hie' and 'hes'

"Pronouns are 'e' and 'em' and 'eir,'.... 'Tha,' 'thon,' 'thos'..."

Later on " 'hoi,' 'hom,' and 'hos' " are added.

Smrloomis Huh. Is that intriguing or just frustrating? 1mo
julesG @Smrloomis I find it frustrating, especially when one character changes clothes within one scene and hence gets three different pronouns within as many short paragraphs. 1mo
julesG @Smrloomis It somehow takes me out of the flow. Reading about "hoi" then "tha" then "e" - it indicates the person went from overly male clothing to naked and then some sort of unisex. If the story keeps piling on more pronouns, I'll need a notebook to keep track 1mo
Smrloomis @julesG yeah I don‘t think I could keep track without some sort of guide! 😅 1mo

Another book finished for #Scarathlon2022 and one I specifically chose for #Necronomathon.

In this final installment of the Rupert Wong series, the Malaysian cannibal chef and friends go on a road trip in the US to prevent the end of the world. Gods, monsters and other strange creatures (including an embodiment of the Internet) show up everywhere.
