I just finished reading Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel. 

My thoughts upon finishing: "What the HELL was that?!"

I will continue to enjoy Martel's earlier work Life of Pi, but Beatrice and Virgil stinks of someone who believes themselves to be smarter than they actually are. The book is padded with unnecessary repetition and description, there are whole sections and events that have no baring on the story whatsoever, and the ending makes absolutely no sense. Furthermore, if Martel really wanted to do something different with writing about the Holocaust, he maybe should have tried to not be so goddamn pedestrian about it...I'm not saying that every single idea in the book was bad, I'm just saying that the majority of them were....also, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?! 

In conclusion: I did not like it.

When you spend a lot of time alone, you start talking to yourself. Also, since you don't have to worry about another person following your thought pattern, you tend to just talk the whole way through it...so, sometimes, something like this happens:

*clicks on the G: drive*
"No wait, I don't want the G: drive. I want the T: drive..." *clicks on T: drive*
"...Tee...Tea for two and two for tea..." *slips into Marlene Dietrich impersonation* "...me for you and you for me." 
"What the hell am I singing?"

In other news....

SUPERNATURAL on Friday!! Yay!! As usual, my Quick Reaction post will be up very very late Friday night. 

SHERLOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god, you guys....so, uh, my apologies to the very few of you who follow me on Tumblr. As you may have noticed, I've become very obsessed with all things Sherlock. To that end, my Quick Reaction post about The Hounds of Baskerville will be up on Sunday, most likely around 5pm (PST), if my IP mask comes through for me again. 

Also, for those of you who also are interested in Sherlock (or The Hobbit), Martin Freeman (aka Watson Baggins) is going to be on Graham Norton this week. I'm hoping my IP mask comes through for me for that as well.
