Calvin and Hobbes - Bill Watterson,G.B. Trudeau

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help. 

 

Bill Watterson

 

Happy 59th birthday, Bill Watterson! The creator of the beloved comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, featuring a boy and his tiger, was in fourth grade when he wrote a fan letter to Charles Schulz. He still has the Peanuts creator's response.

Different Point of View
Calvin and Hobbes: Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons - Bill Watterson

I had read this when I was younger (teen and in college) and just now rereading the book it brings a different point of view and is just as funny as it was when I was younger. It doesn't matter what your age, it is funny and fun to read.

Week 4 of 2017
Fer-de-Lance - Rex Stout,Loren D. Estleman
Shouldn't You Be in School? - LemonySnicket
Paper Moon - Joe David Brown,Peter Bogdanovich
Calvin and Hobbes: There's Treasure Everywhere - Bill Watterson
The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes - Bill Watterson

Books Read: 5

 

 

"Shouldn't You Be in School": This is the third book in the All the Wrong Questions series. 4 stars

 

Paper Moon: The back of the copy I have compares this with To Kill a Mockingbird, they're not in the same league at all. I found the characters extremely annoying and the book wondered all over until the last couple of chapters. The ending itself was unsatisfying and I really wouldn't recommend this. 2 1/2 stars

 

There's Treasure Everywhere and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes: I don't have much to say about these two, it's Calvin and Hobbes. 4 stars

 

Fer-De-Lance: Nero Wolfe ranks up there with Sherlock Holmes and Flavia for me. The books are dated and I found myself cringing at some of the comments made throughout, but I still love them. 4 stars.

 

Total Read for the Month: 12

 

I'm doing good so far this year and I'm on schedule, a little ahead in fact to complete 100 books this year.

My Thoughts: 

 

Another fine collection by Watterson. I found myself laughing a lot more in this collection than in the previous one. I don't know if that is because this was truly funnier, or if it was because more time had elapsed since my last C&H read.

 

I've got a few more collections left. Once I'm done with those, I don't know that I'll ever plan on re-reading these. As a teen, C&H enthralled me. As an adult, they're amusing me. I suspect that as a mature adult, they will come across as tedious or shallow. I don't want that and I'd rather never read them again and keep the good memories.

 

Finally, is that title a mouthful or what? I had to go to Wikipedia and just search out Calvin and Hobbes and then copy/paste the title or else I would have gotten it wrong.
