  1. Damn I might need to do a reread. Who is the Teller of Secrets?
  2. Here are several: Hey, DireWolfSpirit, how are you? He went to the store, and he bought milk. DireWolfSpirit, a poster at ASOIAF forums, asked about Oxford commas. If DireWolfSpirit asks a question, then unJon answers it. Because DireWolfSpirit asked, I decided to make this post. At the beginning of the story in chapter 2, the main character was introduced. DireWolfSpirit asked about non Oxford commas, which have many uses in written English.

    Popular Book series you’ve tried and failed to get into:

    I was in the same boat after reading Consider Phlebas. Then I read Player of Games and loved it. And Use of Weapons was even better. Would urge you to read on. (I can’t read even loosely tied together series in anything but publication order.)

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    Nice. The new Luna book. I’ve been enjoying that series. It’s like The Godfather set on the Moon.

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    Oh interesting. I love LPQ but put down D&C after just a couple of chapter because I wasn’t getting into it. Maybe I’ll pick it back up.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    Tell them it was damaged and they’ll send you a new one before you have to send the old one back (if you even do). You can still start reading right away.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I had high hopes for this season, and was giving it the benefit of the doubt. But I thought the mystery was fairly predictable, and without much dramatic tension. The reveal conversation was just boring. I do think the acting was great and was the saving grace for the season.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    Funny. IMO, the plot has resolved more quickly than season 1. YMMV obviously.

    Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James

    Below are the quotes from the article I read: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/01/28/why-marlon-james-decided-to-write-an-african-game-of-thrones/amp

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    I like how they are resolving some of the mysteries earlier as opposed to waiting to resolve everything in the finale.

    Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James

    Based on an article I read on this book, it covers the same events from three POVs, maybe all of which are unreliable.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    That point I agree with and am not sure. Maybe she didn’t see that part? She only caught the part with the AG on. We are told she’s not all there mentally.

    True Detective Season 3 (SPOILERS)

    The daughter said the man pretending to be my father, meaning the AG. Not meaning Scoot. From the daughter’s point of views, her biological father is the one pretending. She doesn’t know the truth.
