I haven't read any Heinlein in quite a while and picked up Glory Road on Friday night and was finished with it Saturday night (would have been finished sooner if I didn't need to sleep, didn't stop to watch a couple of discs of Evangelion (chironcentaur
decided that she wants to see it. More precisely, she wants to see The End Of Evangelion and has consented to sit through the series first, though is quickly regretting it and desperately wanting to kill every character it seems, except Kaji and Rei, whom she keeps yelling at to kick Asuka's ass. I think she dislikes the series even more than I did when I first watched it. I can't say that I'm absolutely loving it this time around, but after reading a good bit about it some time ago, and having seen it before and seen The End, it's a lot more interesting
this time, and I'm catching stuff that I didn't catch before.
That doesn't change the fact that Asuka's an insufferable bitch with an earsplitting voice, Shinji is a spineless weenie (yeah, I guess his weenieness makes The End that much crazier but still), and yeah, I know it's a cartoon but oh my god, could they have made Misato act at least a tiny bit like an adult- and I don't mean all the beer drinking?)
So, anyway....Glory Road was extremely entertaining. I highly recommend. Go read it. I decided a while ago that I need to start reading some of a couple of my favorite authors again, which I hadn't in a while- specifically Jack Kerouac, Robert Heinlein and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. AND I've got a bunch of unfinished books kicking around.
I've decided to keep track of my reading of these authors just for fun...the lists, taken from wikipedia, aren't completely accurate but to get a general idea...( it's kinda a long list. )
Then today, i was digging through some of my boxes and found a few books I've started reading a few times and never finished..so that's my plan readingwise for the next few days- to read those books.
So I have:
The Salmon Of Doubt by Douglas Adams (no, not on the above list of course but needs to be read nonetheless.)
Time Enough For Love by Robert Heinlein
Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac
Haven't decided which I want to read first.
Somewhere in all those boxes, I have a couple of the partially-read short story collections by Marquez that I want to read.
