I have not watched the show.
The book is OK. Privileged white girl goes to prison and makes out OK. Apparently there is racism and poor conditions in prison! On the positive side, she's not surprised by this. On the negative, it doesn't make for much

The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu

Got to page 327 before I quit. Uneven, draggy, overly complicated. In those respects, the comparison to Game of Thrones is apt; however, GoT has characters worth caring about. Grace of Kings has not one female character, and far too many men who only ...more

Good story, explained a bit about MMORPG and gold farming in them, labor organization and health care in China. A whole lot for a little Graphic novel, huh? Well, it's by Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang, and published by First Second. They pull it off.

The Pied Piper of Hamelin by Russell Brand
Rate this book
Clear rating

Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster) by Dave Barry
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dave is in great form here. You'll laugh, a whole heckuva lot. A whole lot. A few solid emotional moments too. Be warned: if you read this one in public, exercise caution with beverages: you'll be laughing so hard that they might come out your nose.
