Quotes Rowena Liked

Mat Johnson
“In my head, I was getting 'gangsta,' which I've always felt showed greater intent than getting 'gangster' in that it expresses a willful unlawfulness even upon its own linguistic representation.”
Mat Johnson, Pym

Rowena You're welcome, Jane! Isn't he? ;)


R.S. Carter I'm about 100 pages in right now. Loving it so far - loving the perspective, the humor, and the education (as well as the adventure).

I'm glad you're enjoying it! I remember laughing so hard at times. Will you be writing a review?


R.S. Carter It is hilarious. I will be leaving an informal review on GR, and also doing a review for my paper under my real name. I remember hearing about it on NPR last year and I've only finally been able to get to this one. I'm so glad I kept it on this list, it's fantastic.

Great! I look forward to reading your review. I wish I'd written a review when I first read it, it's one I'd definitely like to re-read:)


R.S. Carter Loved it. I'll be writing my formal review for the papers this evening. That was too much fun. I didn't expect it to be a retelling.


message 7: by Debbie (new) - added it

Debbie Hi Rowena,
You didn't write a review for this one. I've just run across it. I wonder do you remember reading it? What was it like? It sounds kind of .. weird.


Rowena Hi Debbie,

I wish I had written a review when I'd first read it. It was really good, weird but good. Definitely a satire. I read it pretty quickly:)
