I've recently caught up with Under the Dome. It's interesting enough and has potential to go somewhere good depending on the direction it will take. Hearing that it was renewed got me worried about how they could keep the dome premise without having many plot holes, though.
Pacific Rim last weekend........objectively speaking, I think it is somewhat polarizing. I don't expect everyone to like or enjoy it. The cinema's less stellar audio (poor choice of theater this time) also detracts from the experience.
Personally, it is quite enjoyable, and I appreciate that the amount of infodump is limited (or unnoticeable, with what I consider a mostly show-don't-tell approach). I have a few concerns with jarring editing, as some powerful scenes did not get as much impact because of it.
I've read about five chapters of The Ocean at the end of the Lane. I'm loving it so far....Haven't read Coraline yet so can't compare but sometimes I catch myself thinking of American Gods. Although the story is not really the same, it seems to me that it's something that could be set in the American Gods universe. I'll see if that opinion will hold up until the end of the book.
Oh, and I've finished Conspiracy by Lindsay Buroker. I have been warned of the cliffhanger and there it is!
I would be finished with Lindsay Buroker's Conspiracy soon, against all odds. I'm very tempted to stall my planned reading, as I have done so many times, because now I'm interested in Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
A couple of episodes into Doctor Who series 5 and I quite like it. I know there's a lot of bashing for the direction Steven Moffat took the show but I guess that ain't 'til series 7; or maybe I just like his kind of humor.
I finally got a copy of Lindsay Buroker's Conspiracy so I'll read that next. Did not read one bit last weekend so I'm stuck with The Fires of Heaven - time to power through this book, seriously. Then I would stay away from WoT for a good while before pushing through with Lord of Chaos.
Speed reading got me to 50% of The Fires of Heaven in two days....IMO it is marginally better than The Shadow Rising....maybe I could speed read through the remaining 50% over the weekends. This book took me long enough.
