Ippolit Kirillovich began his speech for the prosecution feeling chill and fever by turns in all his body. He later described it thus. He considered this speech the chef d‘oeuvre of his entire life, his swansong. To be sure, nine months later he died of an acute consumption, and had he had an early premonition of his end, he really would with justification have been able to compare himself to a swan singing its final song.


Ruthiella Having read now the entirety of that speech, I‘m not surprised he died soon after. It was EXHAUSTING! 😬 2mo

mcctrish Did we actually talk about what we meant to talk about? Was it Ivan‘s visits? Or was it that Grigory is to blame? We should, henceforth, dress en déshabillé while we read that‘s for sure 3mo
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish I feel like she said a whole lot about nothing 🤣 3mo
mcctrish @BarkingMadRead she sure as shit started about 100 different conversations with each sentence 3mo

He dreamed a strange dream...There he was, travelling in the steppes somewhere, in the place where he had served in the army long ago,and he was sitting in a cart, drawn by a pair of horses, which a muzhik was driving into the sleet. Only Mitya was cold…and the snow was falling in large wet flakes and falling to earth, instantly melting. And the muzhik was driving him cheerfully, brandishing his whip in marvellous style…


mcctrish He says long ago like he‘s 50 🤦🏻‍♀️ ( all penguins should brandish a whip imo) 3mo
TheBookHippie The horse and cow!!!!! 😍😍😍 3mo
Ruthiella They say animals and children are the hardest to work with in the biz, and here you are handling both with aplomb! And on a shoestring budget! 👏👏👏 3mo

Vicious Circle | C J Box

Finished this in my PJ‘s with my dog and my coffee #perfection

This is my favorite series because of Joe Pickett‘s bumbly honest nature, his penchant for finding himself in danger, and the love he has for his family. The case he works here has been ongoing for the past several books and it was nice to see it come to a close. Maybe. CJ Box has a knack for really setting up the scenes and painting Wyoming and the Tetons beautifully with words.

The lineage of this test making it to me was, I think, @ElizaMarie from @Chrissyreadit from @TieDyeDude from @The_Book_Ninja

Despite flaws in the test, for a former subscriber to Ms. Magazine, someone who saw Gloria Steinem speak at Duke University, who participated in Take Back the Night rallies, and whose later feminism was strongly influenced by work with birthing and childrearing families, it's a quick look at where feminism is today.

Chrissyreadit I‘m so curious! it looks like you have a more moderate approach to feminism and i am genuinely wondering what major influences were? I suspect we grew up during same time frame- i also subscribed to Ms and follow Steinem. I‘m enjoying seeing all the results and many of the questions i think would have been answered differently (by me) with a more nuanced approach. 3mo
TieDyeDude The ecofeminism stuff really threw me. I'm sure this barely scratches the surface, but it was an interesting exercise. 3mo

ImperfectCJ @Chrissyreadit My moderate results are likely a combination of a bit of an allergy to making decisive declarative statements (i.e., thumbs up or double thumbs up) about nuanced issues, and the fact that a lot of these nuanced issues are presented as decisive and declarative. My influences are varied and include the tagged, women's studies classes in the late 90s, watching how women are treated by the medical system, and Audre Lord, to name a few. 3mo
ImperfectCJ *Audre Lorde. Especially this book of hers (I'm not big on poetry, but I like essays). 3mo
ImperfectCJ @TieDyeDude Agreed. And also how the questions/statements seem to use patriarchy and capitalism interchangeably (although that might have been a misinterpretation on my part). 3mo
Chrissyreadit @TieDyeDude I agree! i tend to see eco through a financial lens- and can see how it is more nuanced and intersected. @ImperfectCJ Yes- i was surprised by some of the statements tbh. I have a very inclusive view of feminism but some of those statements were clearly exclusive- unless perhaps more nuances were to be presented. Either way it‘s making me think and want to have conversations and i love anything that does that. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @Chrissyreadit Yes! The test results themselves feel uncomfortably segmented. This is a tendency in our culture right now that feels quite uncomfortable for me...as someone who's spent her adult life working to open up definitions of gender and feminism, it's disorienting to see my GenZ children embracing such granular labeling and definitions. I can't say it's bad, just not what I expected. 3mo
ElizaMarie I think some of my answers were more related to me being in health care. Gender identity is a huge part of what we are discussing at the workplace and having family members and friends who are nonbinary, transgender and in same sex relationships made me consider those statements more carefully. That and being a Latina in Vermont. I think if I filled it out while still living in south TX I might not have answered similarly. (edited) 3mo
Chrissyreadit @ElizaMarie For me it really felt more like differentiating between what are considered societal norms and what i truly believe. Also i consider myself a fairly rabid feminist so was surprised by some of my own initial responses. I also wonder what responses my colleagues in my clinic would have. 3mo
ElizaMarie @Chrissyreadit I really enjoyed this “exercise”. I feel like I need to either read more or engage more with people and have these discussions more regularly. 3mo
The_Book_Ninja Thank you to everyone who tagged me. I‘ve enjoyed seeing the varied results 3mo

dabbe @Bookwormjillk 😂😂😂 4mo
Graciouswarriorprincess I agree…wtf? This book is something else! 4mo
TheBookHippie I‘m pretending I‘m sitting at the bar listening to a drunk tell a very long story….. 4mo
Cuilin I do wonder why a chapter like this is added into a novel, as it never seems to move the plot forward. Is to highlight the suffering as that‘s a big theme of the book? Who knows? It‘s all rather fascinating though, if a little 🍌 👖. 4mo
BarkingMadRead @TheBookHippie 🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃 4mo
Ruthiella So I listened to a pretty erudite book tuber about this book and he said the point of the novel is the age old question in Christian theology of why do humans suffer if there is a benevolent god looking out for us. So the plot is maybe all subservient to this idea and therefore occasionally whackadoodle. Also, FD had a son named Aleksey who died as a child, which was a huge blow. Generally FD‘s life was one of hardship, illness and grief. 4mo
Ruthiella Here‘s the link- though it is a long video. https://youtu.be/zpqES5V6iAg?si=Mt9Bwh8JgLfDneMZ 4mo

TheBookHippie @Ruthiella my friend told me to pretend I‘m reading Job from the Old Testament in the Christian Bible so … must be so! 4mo
TheBookHippie @Ruthiella thx for the link! 4mo
mcctrish Was Aloysha not supposed to deliver something to this second-captain? Money? Or did I miss something in the last chapter‘s yelling ?Biggest take away from this chapter? The insult “you‘re a little pile, and you smell vile” absolutely SAVAGE 4mo
BarkingMadRead @mcctrish yeah, he was supposed to give him money! Ugh 4mo
mcctrish @BarkingMadRead something to look forward to tomorrow 🤣🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ 4mo

#SeriesLove2023 @Andrew65 @TheSpineView

Karin Slaughter has yet to disappoint me with her books. They are always the perfect combination of mystery, action, and darkness.

I liked that this one took us back into Sara's past and gave more insight into who she was and the tragic event that changed her world.

Another great page turner from the Queen of gritty crime novels. 💚

TheSpineView Fantastic! 9mo
dabbe “Slaughter“ for a crime novelist. #perfection 🤩 9mo
