‘Awright, awright. So I killed an old couple for a can of beans. Still tucking in, though, right? Remorse didn’t spoil your appetite.’

My friend’s wife, passing the room, stepped back and looked in with an expression of maternal concern. ‘Everything okay?’

‘Sure, except that we’re now having to give away the last of our medicine to a beggar to stop these whiners from moping. Other than that, e... Read more of this blog post »

The Outsider by Albert Camus
Rate this book

Good translation, and I liked Sandra Smith's explanation of some of her choices, but I disagree that "The Outsider" makes more sense than "The Stranger". The latter could apply to Meursault but also to the Arab on the beach or in fact to most of the ...more

Egil's Saga by Unknown

I read this translation in parallel with Catherine Fell's. I liked the character of Egil (a tween psychopath who matures a bit as he gets older) but I prefer my sagas small-scale, where a feud that leads to an inburning starts with the theft of a pig ...more

Rama II by Arthur C. Clarke

I should have just reread Rendezvous With Rama. This utterly unnecessary sequel revisits old ground but it takes its sweet time getting there (you can safely skip the first fourteen chapters) and the rest is padded with poems, flashbacks, dream seque ...more
Can You Brexit? by Dave Morris

Can You Brexit? by Dave Morris
"An interactive gamebook which puts the reader in to the Prime Minister's shoes. Every decision you make has an effect and you must deal with the consequences. For such a polarising issue, this is accessible to all and good fun while making you thi..." Read more of this review »

Dubliners by James Joyce

I read this because my grandfather grew up in Dublin at the turn of the century. His experience may have been quite different from Joyce's, though, as this is all sickly with theological sugar and Granddad was raised Church of Ireland.

The Masters by C.P. Snow

Game of Thrones for readers who care more about character and ethical dilemmas than dragons and prophecies. I'm only half joking. This was the first C P Snow novel I'd read, but I since acquired the whole Strangers & Brothers series.

Richard Feynman
“I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.”
