Back to what’s known to amuse

I must admit to having finished the first of these (both of which I’ve read before) on Thursday, and the second yesterday, but unfortunately my computer and/or Firefox have been a bit slow over the weekend so I haven’t got much done. I should especially apologise for how late the NatCroMo game instructions were tonight. I really couldn’t fail to get them out tonight, after keeping it going all month, however. I hope tomorrow’s finale will be fun.

89. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

I’ve actually only read this once before, but it’s a very good book, and I’m glad I returned to it. Christopher is a very engaging character and narrator, and the unusual situations he gets himself into are very believable. Haddon skilfully has Christopher show us clearly how those around him get themselves in a pickle through their human foibles, as well as how Christopher himself cannot understand this.

90. Pure Ducky Goodness: The First Sheldon Collection by Dave Kellett

I get the daily email of the new Sheldon cartoon, but I got the four extant print books as well (all signed and two with individual sketches inside). I really like the format and concept, but mostly the humour! Flaco is my favourite character, but the rest of the guys (there aren’t any regular female protagonists, as I’ve just now realised…) are fun too. This first book introduces Sheldon, Gramp and Arthur the duck, as well as Sheldon’s friend Dante. (Oops, Flaco isn’t in this one. It’s still good!)

    […] book has obvious links to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, but is its own tale, as well as being a well-crafted mystery. In fact, it’s one of the few […]
