403: Listen to the song of the paper cranes... (Cranesong)
( Jul. 22nd, 2015 09:04 pm)
Today I read John Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation in a single eight-hour sitting. It's a good book, at times very funny, but not terribly complex. Literary popcorn, you might call it, with just the right amount of real butter.

As an aside, I can't help imagining the protagonist being played by Jim Carrey. He's got that kind of chutzpah to him. So if you like Carrey's films but don't ordinarily like science fiction, or perhaps Scalzi, you might appreciate this one. (And of course if you can't stand the actor, you might want to give Fuzzy Nation a pass.)
Went there for dinner last night. Food was okay, atmosphere was weird. It appears to be an experience in extreme '50s kitsch. Probably won't go again.
