I am currently reading two books at once, both I am not enjoying but both must be read.
I am a little (a lot) behind with my reading for my module ‘Single Author Study’ (the author being H. G. Wells).
This is mainly because I have a lot of other work to do for my course, but also because these two books aren’t novels, they are something like a long long essay mixed with a fictional discussion type thing.
This book is so disappointing; I really felt it had so much potential, the whole concept is fascinating, but it just dies a horrible literary death. If you’ve ever read Sir Thomas More’s ‘Utopia’, Wells’ version will be a big let down.
I can’t say too much about this book because I haven’t read enough of it yet, but it appears to be going the same way as the previous one. There’s no dialogue in it (which is funny because in the other half of my degree I am learning about the importance of dialogue in writing), which makes it incredibly tedious to wade through.
I miss reading books out of choice, not for a module at uni.
What are you reading at the moment?
