I finished this at my work desk this morning. I enjoyed the book - ish. There were certain scenes that I was really into and I kinda adored Hardin. I don't think I loved this book as much as I had hoped though. The characters weren't very diverse or really developed. The beginning parts with Seldon and the beginning of the Foundation seemed a bit weak. I might still continue with this series though. Completed Roll #24 for #Roll100. @PuddleJumper

I‘m a longtime fan, so it‘s no surprise I enjoyed this. Wilson does a great job maintaining the feel of the poetry using accessible language. I recommend this edition - and the 91 pages of introductory material is pretty awesome, too.

I think this is the sort of poem I have in mind when I talk about the ratio between investment and reward. Me - I'm overdrawn.
At some point, we simply have to conclude that something is badly expressed, or written in a form or style more complex than the idea it expresses, or written for very different fashions and tastes. Here, I suspect, we have all three.

Refreshing stuff. (Sonnet #24) #Shakespeare #Poetry

They draw but what they see..

I've made it to sonnet #24

From the commentary - Patterson quotes another critic - "...some sanity may be retained if one holds on to the idea of two people looking into one another's eyes..."

I think the subtitle resume very well the plot of this thriller without spoiling anything. It started as a reunion of five of seven “friends”?. But then, the reunion ended with murder. Why are they going to meet again after 10 years? Where? What happened with those two other friends. It was good but some situations were odd, maybe unbelievable, predictable, there were red flags in the first pages. Those characters were terrible human beings 3.4⭐️

My tentative list for #roll100 even though it‘s already had its first roll, but no matter!

#24 - Joyland by Stephen King (super needed especially since I live in North Carolina)

#49 - Confessions by Kanae Monaco (been on my TBR list forever, and I‘ve heard great things)

✌🏻

tokorowilliamwallace Yay! This makes me happy you are doing it! Are you going to try to complete some bingos on the board, too, or just read your bookspin picks? 3w

Who started this edition without realizing the introduction and translator‘s notes are 100 pages long? That would be me. Don‘t get me wrong; I‘m finding it all fascinating so far (I am a big Odyssey nerd), it‘s just more than I expected. I should have, though, as the whole thing is massive.

RaeLovesToRead Nice edition! 3w
ravenlee @RaeLovesToRead thanks! I have a collection of Odyssey translations - I think six so far, including a graphic novel version. I‘ve only read two so far, though. 3w
rabbitprincess I have that edition too! 3w
