What are you reading?
Tread no Fear, Fear to Fear, Know no Tread… something like that! Book 21 in the Horus Heresy series. No real comments on it yet, as I’ve only just started. Reading this with Dave, and I’m hoping to make some progress on it today. I’m really looking forward to this one as it adds another layer to the Horus Heresy. Another, rewind to add another layer of complexity to it all!
What did you read last?
This is going to be a bit of a tricky book to review. Do I talk about it as a book in its own vacuum, as a piece of military science fiction? Do I go more essay and compare the messages to real-world politics? Or do I compare and contrast it to the film (Which I unironically, really like.) Have any of you read this book? Let me know your thoughts on it because as a stand-alone book, I enjoyed it and the world-setting. As a piece of political commentary, I was less bothered because I don’t really enjoy that whole deep-dive thinking. Comparing it to the film, they aren’t all that alike, but I can see the elements they took from it. (Why didn’t the film take the suits!?)
What will you read next?
The first in a four-part series in the Warhammer Horror line. It was released this weekend and I managed to get a copy from Warhammer Bolton when we visited. It’s about A reclusive father, his wanderlust daughter, family secrets, and curses. The characters sounded interesting and the sort that I enjoy… the pages are lined in purple so that gives it some bonus points too!
I don’t know if I’ll get to this by the time WWW comes around again as Fear to Tread is a pretty big book. It’s also rolling around to Half-Term so reading time might be diminished due to parental activities!
Hope you have a good reading week.
