Eh
The Diabolic - S.J. Kincaid

I really like Nemesis but I can't continue with the huge plot holes. I have way too many questions about the basic world building and technology. If science and learning are outlawed, then how were Diabolics created? It makes them seem like a new creation, but isn't new science outlawed? And where do you draw the line on blasphemy? Is learning to sew a crime? What is considered BAD learning? 

 

Again, Nemesis is cool. But I take too many issues with the plot.

How not to be a parent: a guide
Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me - Adrienne Brodeur

I hated Malabar the whole book. And for a while I hated her daughter too. But then I had to remind myself she was just a child and was pretty much brainwashed into all this drama. My own mother was like this. She would rope me into schemes to torment my stepdad's ex and think it was perfectly fine to include a 12-year-old in adult problems. That is why I hate Malabar so so much. She never learns anything. She keeps being selfish. And all she fucking cares about his her boyfriend and her stupid necklace. It was of some comfort that her daughter finally broke the cycle, but for a while I felt like she was just continuing the cycle. Some people just shouldn't be parents. What an exhausting read.

I am at a loss...
Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls - David Sedaris

Holy shit, this went from mildly amusing to meh to holy fuck he is a raging crazy person. First, the chapter on killing sea turtles while his parents allowed it really bothered me. THEN he goes on to a part about how he wants to remind the world about Jesus. Okay, fair enough. Oh no, he wants to send everyone to Hell that he doesn't agree with. Like... transgender people, Democrats, abortionists, Muslims, Buddhists, pretty much anyone NOT David Sedaris. Omg, I cannot tell if he's being satirical or not, but if I can't tell then I'm going to assume you're serious. So, hard left swipe, asshole.

Kill the meg
Hell's Aquarium - Steve Alten

Angel has eaten more people. Shocker. 

 

And now some idiots are wanting to catch a liopleurodon. Only the biggest sea predator EVER. 

 

And then there's the racism. And sexism. And just general stupidity. I'm over it. No amount of awesome dinosaur fish can salvage this.

Less
Less: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2018 - Andrew Sean Greer

I have no idea how I feel about this. I wasn't super impressed. I liked it okay but not enough to say "here, you have to read this" to anyone. Less was borderline spineless, always getting cut off mid sentence and never standing up for himself. And then the ending was like How I Met Your Mother. Really? That's how this all ends? Bah.
