After a year of next to no blog posts I thought I would return to my most successful blogging tool yet: the booklist. I’m going to record the books I read and write a brief thought as to why I read it. My goal this year is to increase the number of ‘literary’ works I read. I’ve collected a number of items over the years that I should read or should reread as is the case for some of them. The bulk of my time spend obtaining English Literature degrees is a haze of half remembered items, which truth be told is not surprising since I essentially (re)created myself on an emotional/psychological level. I feel that I’m now in a place to digest what I read and perhaps learn something as a result.
Prince of Chaos by Roger Zelazny
I spent the better part of the Christmas holidays reading the second part of the the Amber series. I love the concept behind Amber. I’ve always felt that a multiverse is a wonderful thing to play around in if done properly. I am saddened by the fact that Zelazny died before he could finish the overall plot. I wish to know more and am saddened that Lucien’s library is the only place that such an act is possible.
