I'm currently reading Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1) by L.M. Montgomery and I'm really enjoying it so far. It's cute.

Yeah I felt the same about Watchmen. I felt it was good until the final third, when I felt it lost its way structurally and sort of splintered apart.

Terry | 26 comments I read A Conspiracy of Paper. It is a very well researched historical novel. The author attempts to duplicate the writing style of novels of that era. At first this results in dialogue that is too arch, but gradually the author gains better control over his writing and creates a very enjoyable version of 19th century London, especially its underworld.
