Best title ever!

keithmalek The plot doesn't sound that interesting to me, and I don't even like science fiction. But is that title enough to get me to read it? I believe so. 13mo

To accept every gift this book is trying to give you, you must suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride. Dalton‘s prose is sublime. You can see, hear, smell, taste and touch the world he has woven. Magnificent.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

CarolynM I think the need for suspending disbelief was a big problem for me with his first book so this one's probably not for me either. Glad you enjoyed it, though🙂 2y

I have just started this. I love Dalton‘s use of repetition and short punchy sentences to hammer home a characters emotional state.

CarolynM I really didn't like Boy Swallows Universe so I'm not inclined to read this, but I'll be very interested to see your review when you finish🙂 2y
MrsMalaprop I‘m with you on this @CarolynM but I fear we may be the only ones! 2y

So as much as I enjoyed this I feel that Scalzi wasn‘t completely sure what he wanted this book to be. It‘s better than a 3, but not a 4. I guess that makes it 3.5/5!

CarolynM 👋 Nice to see you posting again, I've seen you pop in with a like every now and then so I knew you were still around🙂 Hope things are good with you, or at least as good as they can be in our current world. 2y

Fuck Cancer: Lined Notebook | Ij Publishing, Llc
post image

In 2006 I lost my sister to cancer. Earlier this year I won a short story competition for a piece I wrote called 'Superheroes'. In it I wrote of how I dealt with her illness (or didn't). Today I had this inked to honour her... Fuck Cancer. If you are interested in reading the short story it is here - https://goo.gl/XfAjEs

Moray_Reads I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your story ❤️💔 4y
Eggs I liked your story 😢. I lost my brother 3 months ago to cancer, my sister last year to heart disease, another sister to cancer 10 yrs ago, and I survived breast cancer. There's so much more to us than our cancer experiences but it is so hard. Hugs. Peace. Great tattoo ☺️ 4y

McFarchie @AceOnRoam & @CarolynM it was outstanding IMO. It's a great story. Again Winton nails the Australian psychy. I'd be surprised if it's not shortlisted for the Miles Franklin. 4y
CarolynM Thanks. Stacked 4y
AceOnRoam That's great to hear. My overdrive collection doesn't have it yet but I will ask them to buy it asap. Readings in Carlton are selling signed copies with a chance to win dinner with Winton in lygon st. I'm sure I would dribble my food and not find anything worthy to say.... 4y
