Books read/listened to

Finished listening to:

Lois McMaster Bujold, Komarr (audio)

I'm sure the 'I'd better offer sex soon' scene is meant to make the reader feel sorry for Ekaterin because her husband is 'so difficult'. All it did for me was exemplify why I think she's manipulative and whiny. I see nothing for Miles to fall in love with in her. Oh well, different strokes and all that.

I've actually started the audio version of 'A Civil Campaign'. Will see how far I get.

Currently trying to read Julia London's 'The Devil's Love' and hating it. But it's like a train wreck, every time after I put it down for good I end up picking it back up a little time later thinking it *has* to get better. It never does! Guess that makes me as stupid as the characters. The plot is based on a twist that makes NO sense whatsoever (she's an heiress with a 500,000 pound dowry, but if she doesn't marry the guy her father's debts won't be paid off and she doesn't get anything). Yeah, right, whatever. Why did this get published? Why were innocent trees murdered for this?

I'm repeating myself, but so far 2010 sucks as far as new-to-me authors and books. Anybody have a recommendation for me that will work, cause I'm getting a bit desperate here...

You've read ACC, right? Just never listened to it? IMHO, it's much better listened to than read (reading the dinner party scene is painful -- listening to it is hilarious). Anyway, I will never, ever, ever understand the mindset that doesn't like Ekaterin. Never.

But I like you, anyway [g].

Thank you! :) I'll never, ever understand why people like Ekaterin, but I still like you, too. :)

I'm not sure I can listen to the butter bug or the dinner scene (you know my thing about slapstick and embarrassing oneself). I'll let you know how it goes. I will have 7 hours on Friday and 7 on Saturday/Sunday to listen to it.

Yeah, well, I basically can't read the Dinner Party because I have a huge embarrassment squick, too, but having it read out loud by a master like Gardner changes everything.

I will be vastly interested to see if that makes a difference to you, too.
