Reading progress update: I've read 370 out of 880 pages.
Inheritance: Book Four (The Inheritance cycle) - Christopher Paolini

Work took up all of my mental spoons this week so I didn’t get much reading done. Still, what little reading I managed to do was enough to make me regret some of my life choices. Here’s a sampling of what’s annoyed me in the last 124 pages:

 

The phrase “Oh, and what am I, chopped liver?” is used, further strengthening my conviction that neither Poalini nor his editors could be arsed about careful use of idioms.

 

At one point, Eragon rocks up to the army’s livestock pens so he can use the life energy of slaughtered livestock to fill the jewels (magic batteries, basically) in his belt. It’s a horrible experience for him. He feels the animals’ pain and feels “unclean” and responsible for their deaths. And yet, not a single mention of the whole going-vegetarian-then-slipping-back-into-meat-eating thing. I’m still wondering if there was a point to that whole personal journey.

 

Angela has what is basically a vorpal sword. Because of course she does. What else would a walking deus ex machina carry? I mean, aside from all the other weapons she pulls out of her (figurative) ass. (Unless it’s her literal ass. I really don’t know where she keeps them all.) Whenever Paolini paints his characters into a corner, here comes Angela to save the day in the most annoying and OP way possible. Remember Fizban from Dragonlance? Well, make him shorter and give him boobs and voila! Angela.

BoB26 Daily Challenge, Day 5 - I Want This Book!

Challenge premise: We get excited about books getting adapted into TV shows, movies or plays, but what about media that you want to see as books? Tell us about your favorite story (can be anything - play, TV show, movie, podcast, web series) that you would like to be adapted into a novel.

 

I choose one of my favorite movies from my childhood....

 

Image result for Newsies the movie

 

Newsies (1992) was a Disney musical that flopped in the theaters and became a cult classic among Disney-heads and Bale-heads. This is the point that I fell for Christian Bale and watched everything he is in going forward.

 

I say a historical series set from the time of the strike (which happens at about the 75% mark in the movie) and just follow the main newsies through the years. Did Jack marry David's sister? What ever happened to Mush, Crutchy, and David's younger brother? What did these kids grow up to do during WWI? So many possibilities and plotlines! I think a family saga type of series following the newsies and their family members for the entire 20th century would be fun to read. Or just have Edward Rutherford write the book like he does for London, Paris, and New York.
