Weekly Geeks 6 Part 2


This may be a short post, for a change!
Uhm … I’m all caught up now, thanks to the Weekly Geeks. I finished … four? books. Yes. Four. Two Agatha Christies; 1984 and Certain Girls.
So I did them as three separate posts and they’re out there for all Weekly Geekers to see.
The hardest one to review was 1984; it’s just so well-written, and so full of ideas, and a terrifying vision of how the future could have been. The easiest were the Agatha Christies, just because I love her novels so much. And the most fun was Certain Girls; a sequel to Good in Bed. I enjoyed reading that one so much I’d be sitting at work itching to get home to it _ the best kind of book. :)
I hope all you other Weekly Geekers have had a great week. :)

I liked 1984, which is weird cos I usually hate sad endings. I guess that's a sign of a really good book. It's nice to be able to appreciate references to Big Brother and newspeak etc. too. =)

I read 1984 long time back, before 1984! I don't remember it. Might as well re-read!

I think the scariest thing about it is how it hasn't dated at all. It's still very relevant.

I agree with you about 1984 still being so relevant. Some of the middle of the book dragged for me but it was certainly worth reading.
