Quick Reviews

Well, with nothing on tv, there is plenty of time for movies and books. Since I'm sick of, and depressed by, politics (note lack of blogging) I thought I'd throw this up.

Books first.

"I am Legend" by Richard Matheson - which, as it turns out, is more of a novella. EXCELLENT read. I didn't realize that the paperback I bought was actually the novella, and short stories. I thought I had another half of the book to go. I was distressed at the end.

"The Time Travers Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger. Despite the fact that one of the characters is a time traveler, this isn't Science Fiction, but a love story. Good book.

Two Monster Movies:

The Host: South Korea, big monster. Of course, who is to blame for the monster? An American, of course.

Cloverfield: I loved it. I took SEVEN children to see it yesterday afternoon. It wasn't really "scary" - it was more like a thrill ride. Definitely worth a viewing, unless (of course) you are prone to motion sickness.
