Quick reviews of The Bear Went Over the Mountain by William Kotzwinkle, Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves. by P.G.Wodehouse and The Mayne Inheritance by Rosamond Siemon
The Bear Went Over the Mountainby William Kotzwinkle
Finished it this morning. Very enjoyable, compulsive read. I was surprised to read that Kotzwinkle is the writer behind E.T The Extra Terrestrial!
Number of laugh out loud moments, greater than ten. Number of quiet sniggers: at least one every two pages.
Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves.by P.G.Wodehouse
If you love one Jeeves book you love em all. I love em all. Very fomulaic that wodehouse. I'd like to build a 'Write your own plot for a Jeeves and Wooster Novel' web form. the structure is always the same, you just fill in a few blanks.
The Mayne Inheritanceby Rosamond Siemon
Currently being advertised all over brisbane because of the cicty council's "one book one brisbane" campaign. An enthralling documentary style gothic story about Brisbane's (now extinct) Mayne Family. I think the editor's should've spent a little more time weeding out some of the anti-mayne propaganda that this book includes. Of no real interest to people outside of Brisbane. Of particular interest to: UQ students past and present, old brisbane families, Toowong/Milton residents.Next → ← Previous
