This week, I’ve decided to depart from the Hitchhiker series and from the world of fiction as a whole. I’m taking on a book called The Walrus and the Elephant: John Lennon’s Years of Revolution by James A Mitchell. It will be interesting to see if/how nonfiction changes the pace.
Life, the Universe & Everything was a good book, and I heartily recommend Adams’s series. I just felt like he was reaching a bit to keep the characters’ stories going. Almost like he was writing out of force instead of desire. There are two more books in the series. I might well start back with them, but for now, I’m going headlong in to a completely different mode.
I’m quite enjoying this challenge. Reading has always been a hobby of mine, and I’ve strayed a bit from that in recent years. I probably read three books as a whole last year. Now, I’m starting my fourth for the month.
