Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

- These are really really awesome and really really awful, all at the same time.

-- In the past couple weeks I've read Invincible vol 1: Family Matters, by Robert Kirkman, American Gods by Neil Gaiman and Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich. The Stephanie Plum books are fairly well written; they're nice fluffy diversion reading. They remind me a lot of the pulpy detective novel-type stuff I used to read when I was in high school. Invincible, as well, is a damn fun read. It's straight-up havin' adventures fun superhero stuff, and it reads like it's proud of it. It sort of reminds me of old-school Spider-Man, back when Peter used to just have fun. American Gods is a fantastic book, and if you haven't read it yet you should. It really makes me wish The Rock was a better actor, too, because if they ever make a movie out of it he's perfect for Shadow.
