FF: More Ships

For those of you just discovering this feature, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazine).

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

The Wild Wood by Charles deLint.  Very centered on “idea” rather than plot, setting, or character, which makes for a very unusual novel.

The Tales of Olga da Polga by Michael Bond.  Tales told by and about a very creative guinea pig, who was based on Bond’s family’s own beloved pet.

The Truelove and The Wine-Dark Sea by Patrick O’Brian.  (Audiobooks).  Ends a four book story cycle with the crew of the Surprise hoping to reach home at last.

In Progress:

The Commodore by Patrick O’Brian.  (Audiobook.)

Also:

Continuing Naruto re-read and am up to issue 43.
