it was ok
bookshelves: gave-away, magazine-freebie

Rattling through books at the moment - have an essay due and need a procrastinatory technique, but not one that's actually going to eat up my brain power, so reading all my magazine freebies, hand-me-downs, etc.

Reminds me why I don't like genre fiction: the genre always outstrips the fiction, resulting in cardboard-cutout characters, lazy pick'n'mix plots and Channel 5-bad dialogue.

Plus, I'm usually crap at guessing whodunnit, but she gives us a HUGE heads-up around halfway through.
