Love Polygons and Oblivious Characters
Betrayed: A House of Night Novel by Cast, P. C., Cast, Kristin 1st (first) Edition [Hardcover(2009/9/29)] - P.C. Cast

I like the story. What I didn't like? The obnoxious love polygon and the fact that I saw all the major twists coming from a book away while the main character was so surprised even when she had thought about it herself beforehand. 

 

I'll be continuing this series I'm just hoping these things get better.

Reading progress update: I've read 160 out of 310 pages.
Betrayed: A House of Night Novel by Cast, P. C., Cast, Kristin 1st (first) Edition [Hardcover(2009/9/29)] - P.C. Cast

Mehhh...I'm not sure exactly how much I like this book? I defiantly don't like Zoey practically falling in love with every boy she meets in 5 seconds flat. Especially considering one of them is an Ezra/Aria situation and I am not down for that. And otherwise the amount of insta-love in the book? Not a fan.

Okay for a Teen Vampire Book
Marked - Kristin Cast,P.C. Cast

A few years ago, when I was a teenager, I feel like I would have really enjoyed this book. I still did like the book I could just see the obvious flaws with it now. I can't tell if some of the things in the book are just tropes or plot twists, time will tell. I'm excited to continue with the rest of the series!

16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 12 - Saturnalia: Sayers's Harlequinade
Murder Must Advertise: A BBC Full-Cast Radio Drama - Full Cast,Ian Carmichael,Dorothy L. Sayers

 

Another quick trip down memory lane, courtesy of the BBC's full cast audio adaptation of this novel starring Ian Carmiachel (who also starred in the first of the Beeb's two TV series based on Sayers's novels).

 

This was Sayers's revenge on the advertising business, based on her own early job experience as an advertising copywriter -- as well as (so her biographers tell us) her revenge on an ex-colleague who tried to blackmail her and who is made to tumble down an iron staircase modelled on the one at their former workplace, ending up dead. -- This is also the one Wimsey book (perhaps with the exception of the very first one, Whose Body?) where Wimsey is, at times, most similar to Bertie Wooster ... except that he's playing a role here, as he has been smuggled into Pym's Publicity for purposes of an undercover investigation into the tumbled-down man's death.  What ensues is one of Sayers's wildest rides; a veritable harlequinade that has Wimsey even impersonating himself (or his evil look-alike cousin).

 

I would have preferred to obtain a reading of Sayers's actual book by Ian Carmichael (he was a brilliant narrator and had played Wimsey so often by the time these audio recordings came around that he had the character down pat and could slip him on and off like a well-worn sweater), but since for this particular book that doesn't seem to be available, I'll happily content myself with this full cast recording.
