Reading progress update: DNF on page 62
Memento Mori - Muriel Spark

Not my kind of book. It´s not funny at all and I really don´t like the vicious tone of this novel. And I really, really don´t want to read another page of this novel.

I really don´t like the tone of this book. Based on the plot and the unpleasant characters, I have to assume that this book is meant to be funny ... or at least that there is some sarcastic wit to it.

Unfortunately this book reads like Muriel Sparks has meant every single word she has written down. It isn´t particularly funny or witty and the sarcasm is lost on me.

So I´m left with an mediocre plot, which I don´t see the point of, and some really unlikeable characters, who have to be the most vicious elderly people in the history of literature.

 

I need a break from this for the rest of the day.

"Afraid I´m late," he said. "Is the party over? Are you all Lisa´s sinisters and bothers?"

 

The party is a funeral!

 

All the elderly characters that have been introduced so far are unlikeable, but this old curmudgeon takes the cake for being the most unpleasant one. At least so far.

Memento Mori - A.L. Kennedy,Muriel Spark

Memento Mori - "Remember you must die" is the message that an anonymous caller issues to several elderly people, who all react differently to receiving the nuisance calls.

 

What follows is a confused look into the lives of the recipients of these calls and into the way that society neglects the elderly.

 

I don't know what it was about this book, but I rather disliked it. I gather from the reviews of others that there is humorous, yet, macabre writing in this, but I didn't really find much humour in it and found it more sinister and cynical than anything. 

 

Not for me.

Memento (Harmony #1) by Mathieu Reyn├Ęs

The first volume left a lot to be desired, but there was enough there that I would be interested in the second volume.

 

 

36593701

 

This is a whole load of confusing. First the first part that seemed like medieval, and the the part where Harmony wakes up. Nothing is explained. Honestly feels like I was reading #10 in a series. I liked the artwork during the modern part of the story, it was beautiful, especially when she activated her powers and had blue eyes.

 

The story has great potential.
