take the WHAT BAD BOOK ARE YOU test.


and go to mewing.net. not as good as reading a good book, but way better than a bad one.



Actually, I think Lot 49 is a cracking little book.

I romped through Giles Goat-Boy, but I couldn't make head nor tail of The Sot-Weed Factor. Mind you, I think I was about fourteen when I tried to read it so I may not have been its best audience. Bought it in a newsagents' in Prestwick - not often regarded as a hotbed of literary postmodernism.

That may have been the problem. I was about 17 or 18, which, by contrast, may have been exactly the right age to read it!

Yeah, I was about eighteen when I read Giles and just sailed happily through it. I've still got that old copy of The Sot-Weed Factor here somewhere; maybe I'll dust it off one day. But, you know, so many books, so little time...
