    It's good. Comparatively short. Light on the fantastic elements though it still manages to seem surreal. An unsatisfying ending, though -- there were some mysteries raised but left unresolved.

    Now I'm reading REVIVAL.

    I just finished Revival. This has to be the darkest story King has written. The ending is so nasty I truthfully don't know if I'm going to reread this for a long, long time.

    It helps a lot if you've read him before so you know what you're getting into and it also helps if you've been really,REALLY stoned before, I can't recall a leading character who smokes as much weed as Doc in Inherent Vice which is very noirish and funny too, a real departure for Pynchon but you know it's one of his books from page 1

    Well I haven't read anything by Pynchon but I do meet that second requirement lol. Inherent Vice has been on my radar since I learned of PTA's involvement so I'm sure I'll get around to it sooner or later.

    It's actually the most accessible of Pynchon's work I've read so far and therefore probably the best way to be introduced to his wacky writing style, he is totally nuts, I love it!

    I don't know if I'd qualify it as good--but the writing is excellent, which makes the story so nasty.

    Finished Mr. Mercedes - liked it, didn't love it. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    Just started novel by Jo Nesbo called The Redbreast. I am about 70 pages in and its pretty good so far. Friends who know how much I loved Steig Larrson have been recommending Nesbo for a couple of years.

    the only thing bears can do now is re-read Dickens. Finished Chuzzlewit and Our Mutual Friend; now halfway through The Old Curiosity Shop

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
