Reading notes, week 38

by , under books, reading notes

September 19: The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie. I remembered it rather well but it was nice to read anyway, one of the better ones.

September 18: One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Agatha Christie. A rara avis: a Poirot I’d never read before. Intriguing; I thought I knew the twist, but it was more intricate than that.

September 17: Appointment with Death by Agatha Christie. Read it a loooooong time ago, and honestly didn’t remember whodunnit. (Fortunately it wasn’t one of the nice people, or the helpless and/or clueless people.)

September 16: Demonology and the Tri-Phasic Model of Trauma: An Integrative Approach┬áby Nnm. Novel-length Good Omens fanfic, very repetitive (which I think would work much better for a shorter story). It made me go for Good Omens itself before finishing it. I did finish it eventually, though I skimmed bits of the later chapters. I’m glad I did (finish, not skim) because the ending is perfect. Judging by the author’s end-of-work comments I’m probably not the target audience for it.

September 15: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It was about time for a reread: I’d forgotten exactly enough. It’s SO GOOD.

September 13: Monsieur Pamplemousse Investigates. #6, in which Monsieur Pamplemousse wrangles the company computer. — Like worrying at a broken tooth, I can’t stop reading these. Parts are really funny, parts are very cringeworthy.
