Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.

There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

So with that extension, it IS "duck"?

Why abandon a well tried system just because it doesn’t work?

No, it’s fork

Do I want to read Lord Foul's Bane? It's marked down to $2.99 and I recognize the title as Something I've Heard Of but that's about it.

If dreams were thunder // And lightning was desire // This old house would've burned down // A long time ago -- John Prine

I would not recommend it, personally. It's very Sad White Guy and his Important Problems.

That is kind of what I suspected, thank you for confirming

I'm pretty sure I read most of that series (if it's the one I'm thinking of ... possibly another by the same author). Offhand, I'd say avoid it.

I feel like Jessica might have opinions about it? Or has read it more recently than I? I just remember that the dude starts with leprosy and gets more depressed from there.

Now tagless for your comfort.

Spoiler Alert was a treat, and it's getting a sequel later this year!

YAY! I loved it. I need to go pre-order the sequel. It definitely hit me in a fandom way, sort of like William Gibson's Pattern Recognition did.

I just discovered THIS and can't wait to order the audiobook. YUMMY!

I just finished the audio for Winter's Orbit and am totally in love. I read the book but picked up the audio when I found out that the narrator worked on Alexis Hall's For Real and his voice is like buuuuuuuuutttter.

Why do trees keep happening? — Eukaryote Writes

Lord Foul's Bane

Oh, yeah, that guy. I picked it up back when I was reluctant to not finish a book. I did not finish it. Picture Heinlein if he wrote in fantasy instead of SF and made whining his narrative mode of choice.
