Due to a friend’s continued harassment, I finally caved and purchased a copy of House of Leaves. I honestly have avoided looking inside, but apparently it’s really good…
Books and covers, you know.
Right now, I am reading The City & The City by China Miéville. It’s an interesting murder investigation, mostly from its setting where two city-states occupy the same metropolitan area, with enclaves much like Baarle-Nassau/Baarle-Hertog in the Netherlands, near the Belgium border. Though, from time to time, I feel I need to suspend my disbelief as the denizens of both cities have to “unsee” the other city due to mutual laws governing both municipalities. To be honest, I would preferred something less fantastical and something maybe more like The Bridge.
Speaking of which, I hopped on at the start of the third season. It is interesting, though I’m fairly sure I’ve picked out what’s going on.
