     MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

  Rating system  Rating system  Rating system

And here to my second scifi novel of the month! After the classic reviewed yesterday, here is a brand new one. I really enjoyed Sleeping Giants last year, the first book in the Themis series, so I eagerly seized the opportunity to read Waking Gods, the 2nd volume.

Book review: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

For those members of The Classics Club, a couple of months ago the latest Classics spin was #12, and in my list, it corresponded to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Many of you have read it or watched the movie Blade Runner, based on it, at least the older version.

I have not watched the movie yet.

CURRENTLY READING

   paradise-lost  Regard du Ressuscité
My Cousin Rachel  Manderley Forever

The Novel of the Century

Paradise Lost
= still enjoying it, a few pages at a time
Regard du Ressuscité
= Orthodox book in French, received for review,
on icons
My Cousin Rachel

= for the Classics Club,
started last month for an event I actually missed
Manderley For Ever
= Tatiana de Rosnay is totally bilingual. She writes some books in French, some in English.
She wrote this biography of Daphne du Maurier in French,
and I watched a French TV literary program last year where she presented her book.
It sounded so good, but I didn’t get to read it.
So when I discovered it was now out in English, and on Netgalley, I knew time had come.
Plus, pretty cool to be reading it at the same time as My Cousin Rachel!
The Novel of the Century
= isn’t it excessive to read so many books at the same time?
Yes, BUT how can you resist a book by David Bellos
(his book on translation was fantastic) AND on Les Misérables?
Saw it at the library and it begged me to take it home
