Timeless Humour: "Porterhouse Blue" by Tom Sharpe
Porterhouse Blue ; Blott On The Landscape - Tom Sharpe


I´ve lost count of the number of times I´ve read "Porterhouse Blue". What memorable characters - Scullion, the reactionary porter who hates change and fondly recalls the good old feudal days when he used to get kicked by the aristocratic students. Sir Godber Evans, the wet former cabinet minister exiled to Porterhouse and his politically correct wife, Lady Mary, who wants to introduce healthy food, condom machines and women into Porterhouse. Sir Cathcart Death, head of the Porterhouse alumni association, who has a Japanese bodyguard, holds orgies in his stately home and tells Scullion to make sure the cook gives him tea on his way out.

Good and bad
Love your lady landscape - Lisa Lister

This was quite good until page 194 when Yoni eggs entered the frame, so I suggest skipping from the middle of page 194 until 201 and then skip near the top of 213 (Healing steam) to 219.  Where it went from being a book by Hay House that I was treating with a small amount of salt garnish to a book that needs careful checking.  It's also quite fertility centric which may be triggering to some childless folks.

 

It's an interesting read and there's a lot of food for thought here but I'm not sure that the salt does may be lethal.

Review of The Landscape of History by John Lewis Gaddis
The Landscape of History: How Historians Map the Past - John Lewis Gaddis

This was a somewhat interesting look into the craft of how to write about history.  Ok that is not a great description - it focuses more on how to think about how to write history.  Honestly, it was a difficult book for me to get through and that was disappointing because I really enjoyed the last Gaddis book I read called On Grand Strategy.  Gaddis is a deep thinker, but I felt he was repetitive and not all that engaging with his arguments.  There were parts here and there that I enjoyed, but I think this book as an hour lecture would have been fascinating.  Anyway, not my best review, which kind of sums up my experience with this particular read.

Complicated
Squared Away (Out of Uniform #5) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #5, in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Mark is a SEAL and not much shakes him up, usually.  With tragic news, he rushes to home to find Isaiah has things in hand.  The very man he has been avoiding since his sister's wedding six years ago.  Now they must find a compromise for the future.

 

Isaiah has been doing just fine with the kids in his care.  Mark coming home is not going to change that.  With a little luck, and maybe a miracle, they can come together for the kids and make is better.

 

Sizzle and pop are what you hear when these men look at one another.  This great addition to an already stellar series, brings back some series favorites with cameos too.  I loved the very real feelings that were between the characters.  I also loved that the pace was not rushed.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
