This is my 4th time reading this book in the last 30 years but I remember zero about it.... It's so weird as I can remember every other disc world book in detail 🤷‍♀️

Paused at the midway point reading this because Covid sucks 😭😭 headache from hell for days and days (I'm so lucky by comparison though I know).

Manicure done and now crackingon while I wait for the groceries to arrive.

TrishB Yes that headache felt like someone was stabbing me in the head! Hope all symptoms gone soon ♥️ 3mo
Balibee146 @trishb a very accurate description..... In other news there was not a single mention of a sport coat in this book.... Shook 🤣😜 3mo

Another #bookmail post. This time trying to encourage the 12 year old to read. I already have them unread on kindle but he's under doctors orders not to use screens just now..... Looks like all the books I've picked up to try to engage him will go untouched as he "hates reading" ??‍♀️?‍♀️

Tamra My son isn‘t a big reader, but still loves the story treehouse series by Andy Griffiths. Frankly I don‘t care about the level or genre so long as he‘s reading. He also recently enjoyed Kevin Hart‘s Marcus Makes a Movie, of course Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dream Jumper graphic novels, and some of Patterson‘s Middle School books. He‘s also liked the Track series by Reynolds. I require reading every day, but it‘s not a go-to activity for him. 8mo
Balibee146 @tamara thanks even the new release Wimpy Kid and Spiderman comic titles aren't tempting him just now..... Trying not to force it and put him off more as he's quite a truculent personality lol.... Pre teen rebellion against reading mum part of it too I think. Will be saving your recommendations though x 8mo
MeganAnn My son just read the Giver in class and he loved it. Although, he does enjoy reading. If your son likes video games for his screen time he might like some of the related books. I know there are some Minecraft books and the tagged book series. The Guys Read collections are also great. They are mostly short story collections with different topics all written by big name authors for “guys”. The short stories make for easier chunks and most are funny. 8mo

Mehso-so

Hmmmm.....sorry mug of tea but positive vibes have left the room. So... I enjoyed the style of writing which is why I'm choosing so-so and not pan.

Problems - I guessed the big
twist within the first couple of pages.... Then dismissed it as unlikely based on ridiculousness and cheese factor. My bad, that dismissed idea IS indeed The Twist 🤮🤮

Second problem a bit spoilery so will hide it in comments if you don't want to see.

Balibee146 While I appreciate that the disabled person as evil villian trope is relevant to the times and social context of the original stories, it makes me sick to see it here again. I have a background in disability equality work so there's no way and contextualising of this sort of thing can ever make it OK for me. The book felt Sherlockian enough without it so could easily leave this sort of ableist bs in the past. Rant over, sorry. 8mo

danni0075 Looked at this today - what did you think of it? 13mo
Balibee146 @danni0075 I enjoyed it in the same way I enjoyed the TV show.... It very much feel. Slike a ox tinuation of that. Very different from the first book, not as powerful and not written with the same lyricism. I did find it readable though.... Lots of people are put off by the tone of some of the younger characters but I was fine with it.... I think it's a conscious choice with the different voices 13mo

A re-read then a new read. I read The Handmaid's Tale 25 years ago and enjoyed it but was a little underwhelmed. I suspect my more mature perspective will get more from this (plus I binge watched all three current seasons of the Hulu series in 4 days last week🤣).
