Not what I expected when I picked it up to read, but ended up enjoying the non-sensical time travel and the Tralfamadorian's perspective of time and death.

Overall, I enjoyed it, but while some stories got me addicted to the book, others took me ages to get into. It is very well written, but I'm not seeing myself re-reading it in the future, so I'll be passing it along.

Dark, freakish, and cute short poems. The theme reminds us of children's stories, but they may be a tad too dark for them. Loved it.

This book is a compilation of five short stories. So far:

1st story: boring drama situation
2nd story: plot twist, wow, did not see that coming! :D

Just started the 3rd one.

Loved it, wanted more of it, but unfortunately the end was lackluster, and felt rushed (again I would hope it was a longer book properly finished). All in all, adding Jack Vance to my "authors I need to read more of" list!
This book will be added to one of the #readingchallenge: #dancingwithfantasyandscifi2019 in the prompt "on a different planet".

Texreader Vance is my husband‘s fave author. 8mo
Liriope @Texreader It's the first book I read from him, and so far I'm liking it! 8mo
Liriope @Texreader I finished the book and loved it. What would be your husband's favourite book from Vance? 8mo
Texreader @Liriope He says there are many: the first Lyonesse series, Wyst (in the series you read), Araminta Station, Dying Earth and he says many others. He said there could be a list of at least 20. I can‘t even begin to tell you what his collection looks like. They are his most “precious” possessions 8mo

I chose this book, starting my first attempt at reading challenges. For my #popsugarreadingchallenge2019 (prompt: a book featuring an amateur detective) and #pwowreadingchallenge19 (prompt: a book I got as a gift).

It is vaguely entertaining. The plot is absurd at times, the characters were annoying and entitled. The best part was the interrogation in Court, but I couldn't wait to finish this. A book I'll be donating to someone else who wants it.

This book is taking me forever. I'm hoping to finish it soon so I can start another one.

This book is basically a compilation of the several dark figures in Tolkien's universe, and their origin/inspiration on actually mythology and ancient history. I believe it would be even better if I knew Tolkien's work a lot more than I do, but even so, very interesting read. The graphic work is brilliant.

Hello guys, this is my first blurb here on Litsy. I am currently reading this book by #davidday. It was a birthday gift, and so far it's quite interesting and graphically beautiful.

Eyejaybee Welcome to Litsy. I remember reading David Day‘s ‘A Tolkien Bestiary‘ more than thirty years ago and thought it was marvellous. Many of his drawings were exactly how I had imagined some of the characters. 9mo
