I have to say, once you really get into it, it is a hard habit to break....yeah, even harder than quitting smoking.     
posted a Quick Tip about Watchmen (graphic novel). June 03, 2012
Watchmen
I just finished this book and this is one of the absolute best pieces of literature I've completed, regardless of the medium.  The best strengths The Watchmen has going for it are that it has really well-developed characters and shows that solutions to potential catastrophies aren't in black-and-white.       While this and Batman:  The Killing Joke …

posted a Quick Tip about Stephen King. June 20, 2011
Stephen King
Stephen King can really turn phrases, and many of his plot ideas are pretty original. But he keeps writing a lot of cliche characters: Alcoholics, bad parents, abused high school students, and others of the sort you might find in a Robert Altman movie.

A seven-drawer locked dresser....one for each day of the week.  What is in each drawer?....well, all the things Georgia needs to make her nightly lovers believe they are the only one....pictures of their mother, their favorite clothes, anything to make them feel "special."   When one of the lovers' wives finds out about the affair, nothing to do but empty that drawer....oh …

Ghellow Road
   Ghellow Road tells the story of Theresa’s life from childhood to teenage years...it is a sad, interesting read about family relationships.    The book takes the reader into the world of a child of a depressed mother, a patient, loving father, and a childhood that was anything but normal. Each time her mother was hospitalized, her father would have Grandma take care …

Ghellow Road
Ghellow Road is a moving narrative of one woman's brave confrontation with her past and the gnawing demons of crippling mental illness that plagued her mother and thus affected the whole of her adolescent and teenage life.     At the onset, Theresa Waters had, by all accounts, an idyllic childhood that overflowed with two loving parents who had a penchant for all the offerings …

Skippy Dies: A Novel
Skippy Dies broke a lot of my rules for literature and still allowed me to love it. I can't stand violence to children in what is, essentially, an entertainment. Really graphic, unhealthy sexual activity is another one that bothers me. Drug abuse is too hard for me to relate to and comes across as an author struggling for some sort of street cred. I'm really square and don't like being …

reviewed Freedom: A Novel. February 10, 2011
Freedom: A Novel
Too many of the pivotal scenes in Freedom have a ridiculousness to them. They are just real enough that the characters seem in earnest, but sufficiently unreal that they seem to be part of a joke. The book is infused with politics, but Freedom is never clear in revealing whether Franzen is trying to parody or to portray “intellectual” lefties who bungle basic economic ideas. Nor can I …

Freedom: A Novel
I'm just not a Franzen fan. This is my second attempt and I can't find a toehold in his work. Am I the only one??
answered a question about Comic Books. January 29, 2011
The oh so Neurotic Robert Crumb is always fun but after the fabulous documentary he´s so famous that he can hardly be called underground anymore.
answered a question about Comic Books. January 28, 2011
How 'underground'? I've read comics that are too underground that I cannot even say....LOL!
