Reading progress update: I've listened 60 out of 360 minutes.
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks

I figure an hour when I have time should work for this.

 

So far so good. Enjoying the audio a lot. Trying to read this was a no go.

 

So far I didn't recognize that many voices. Max Brooks (the author) I found out was the narrator and I can see why many people said eh to him.

 

Hoping to finish by the time I get back from Boston on Tuesday (next week)! Planning on listening on the plane rides. I leave Friday so will be quiet with some pop ins if I have a chance.

Reading progress update: I've listened 1 out of 360 minutes.
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks

Thanks all for the suggestions to listen to this via audio. It was doing my head in trying to read the style of the book as written. I think listening to this via audio is one of the times the audio will work for me. I can also keep reading while listening to this so yeah! Great idea!

 

I also realized that GR doesn't do minutes like BL does, so will only update this here.

I'm going to switch to audio for this so I don't lose my mind. Will get back to this later. Onto ghost square.

I am reading this for "The Dead Will Walk" square. "War World Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War" by Max Brooks. Zombies as far as the eye can see.

 

Hopefully this is good. I'm oy starting now since I am going to have to give the book back to the library soon.

Currently Reading and February TBR(?)
Swag - Elmore Leonard
The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov,Diana Burgin,Katherine Tiernan O'Connor
The Wolf's Hour - Robert R. McCammon
The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead - Max Brooks
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks
The Song of Roland - Anonymous,Dorothy L. Sayers

I am currently reading three books, and hope to read at least seven this month. I'venot been reading much, though, and generally suck at sticking to TBR's (I tend to see a  shiny, get distracted, and run off chasing flutterbies and pretty new books), so don't expect to see all of these books come my monthly wrap-up.

 

1. Swag - Elmore Leonard  Swag - Elmore Leonard  - Currently Reading

 

    A couple of low-level scumbags start committing armed robberies in pursuit of the good life in 1970's Detroit. Fun thus far, but not one of Leonard's best. I've been told the ending's a pip, though. I'm about a hundred pages in, and it is picking up.

 

2. The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov,Diana Burgin,Katherine Tiernan O'Connor  The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov,Diana Burgin,Katherine Tiernan O'Connor   - Currently Reading

 

    One of my occasional stabs at reading a classic, in this case Early Russian Magical Realism. So, the Devil comes to Stalinist Moscow to see what Hell is really like. There's also a giant talking cat named Behemoth. Not a quick read, only fifty pages in, but delightfully bonkers.

 

3. The Wolf's Hour - Robert R. McCammon  The Wolf's Hour - Robert R. McCammon  - Currently Reading

 

    Or, The Bourne Lycanthropy. A WW2 set spy thriller with a werewolf in the lead. Not as campy as it sounds, but doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, either. This is the second McCammon for me, after Boy's Life, which I didn't like as much as I wanted to. Still, the first hundred pages of this have been nifty, so...

 

4. The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead - Max Brooks  The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead - Max Brooks  - To-Read

 

    Have read bits and pieces (heh), and it seems fast, fun, and funny. Cool.

 

5. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks  World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks  - To-Read

 

    Seems like a natural next step, yeah?

 

6. The Song of Roland - Anonymous,Dorothy L. Sayers  The Song of Roland - Anonymous,Dorothy L. Sayers  - To-Read

 

    Because, deep down, I want to be the guy who reads classics for pleasure, even if that means reading epic poetry. Besides, wouldn't it be funny if I, a life-long mystery fan, read Sayers's translation of this before any of the Lord Peter Wimsey novels? I thought so, anyway.

 

7. TBD

 

    Look, I have hundreds of books, as well as access to book stores. I'll think of something.
