WiB Summer Edition, Week 3
Here’s one for you, and I mean that literally: I read Children of Men by PD James.
I mean, I’m reading two other things right now (White Oleander and the first Battle Royale manga) but I only completed the one book this week, due to MY FINAL FINALS OF GRAD SCHOOL.
I’m still in the middle of that, so unless I magically manage to get everything done today, then this week might be a little light too.
But onto the book.
I saw the movie when it came out, which was ages ago and a LOT of books and movies and TV shows ago, but from what I remember the book is even more depressing. No kidding. Their “hope” is even less hope-y than it is in the books, the main character is a bit of an ass, and, there’s a “love story” that bugs the crap out of me.
It kept my attention, it was interesting, but…honestly, I prefer the movie. Not by much, but I think I do. I picked it up at the library and meant to watch it…pretty much most of the week, but I just didn’t have the time.
Stupid school. Soon it won’t be in the way of me reading and watching everything I want to…of course, soon MONEY will be the thing that gets in the way of me reading and watching everything, because I’ll be too depressed about not finding a job for months, despite my schooling.
Thanks for all the cuts, Governor!
Next week: Let’s see if I make it through Battle Royale. It’s rather triggering, and sort of in an unnecessary, look-at-how-shocking way so far which isn’t impressing me.
