2012 March Reading List

The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett – I liked A Hat Full of Sky better. 3/5 stars

Good Omen by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett – I wish the entire book was only about the demon and the angel and skipped the rest. The scene at the pub where they decided they couldn’t discuss the apocalypse while being drunk and then instantly sobered up was priceless. I also wish the demon’s strategy of growing healthy plants worked. Oh, and I want one of those cars that make all tapes play Queen songs! 3/5 stars

Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett – I liked it better than The Wee Free Men, though not so keen on the beginning. 3/5 stars

I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett – I loved the title, it was what made me want to read the book even before I knew what it was about. As far as the story goes, I think I liked Wintersmith better. 3/5 stars

And I think I’ve had enough of Pratchett for now, it’s time to move to something else.

The Silence of Gaudi by Juan David Morgan – While I didn’t care for the basic premises and the plot takes some hard to believe turns, the story flows nicely and it’s an easy read. Plus the action is set in Barcelona so extra bonus points for that. 3/5 stars

Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carre – Fascinated as perspective, but disjointed plot. 3/5 stars

The Antiquarian by Julian Sanchez
– Back to Barcelona, yay! The story starts well, but somewhere around the middle it becomes less good and then it goes completely off the rails. 3/5 stars
