This month we are starting with the book The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Post Apocalyptic fiction with complete disregard for punctuation of any kind or quotation marks. “Little” things like that are why I’ll never read that jackass’s books.
You know what they say, The Road to hell is paved with good intentions. Priests, pastors and vicars talk about hell and what you have to do to NOT go there (ie, don’t read this book! hahahaaa)
The Vicar of Wakefield, surprisingly enough, is about a vicar! Amazing how that works!!! What I noticed about this cover was the little dog curled up in the bottom right of the cover.
That reminds me of the book, Prince of Dogs. These dogs, however, look pretty scary and nothing could get me to try to pet them! I bet each of those dogs could eat a whole horse, maybe even two.
Of course, they’d have to catch that horse first. Horses can run pretty fast and no horse was more wild, or ran faster, or was more “betterer” than the Black Stallion. I’m not an animal person and even I enjoyed reading about this horse.
Somebody who doesn’t like horses, is Garrett, Private Investigator. He hates them and is convinced they are out to get him. He’ll tussle with trolls, effervesce with elves, drink with dwarves but horses? No thank you!
When you think of Private Investigators, who does everyone naturally think of?
That’s right! Jimmy Kudo, better known as Detective Conan!!!
Gotcha. As a long running mystery manga, Case Closed is up to 75 volumes here in the United States and close to 100 in Japan. That takes some hard work to keep that kind of momentum going.
And that is how you get from The Road to some Mystery Manga. My advice would be to read some manga, take a chill pill and relax, or you’ll end up like ol’ Cormac.
