Day 5 + book quest...


Morning: bitter (slight headache again!)
Afternoon: occupied
Evening: sluggish

Last night I finished another book quest novel, The Crying of Lot 49. My summary:
  • I do not like Thomas Pynchon. Which means that reading this book might just be the final death knell on Gravity's Rainbow.
  • Some "literary fiction" is crap.
  • I learned nothing.
That being said, I didn't hate it but I certainly didn't like it. My review: it was OK. Unless you're on a quest or you liked Gravity's Rainbow (if you do, please explain how that is possible), don't read it. 52 read, 70 to go...Atonement next.
