Can't Stop the Signal

You mean people read these things? Oh well. Here's some stuff: I read in spurts. Sometimes a lot, sometimes not at all. Sometimes books, sometimes only articles or newspapers or magazines or whatever's on that box of cereals. I don't review books. I sometimes have random semi-coherent thoughts and I sometimes rant, but i never review.

 

Oh, and I try to rant in the same language as the book I'm ranting about was written, which means you might encounter Norwegian, English, German or French here, all of it mangled to some degree.

 

I can read most genres, but I tend to prefer scifi.

Solefall

Solefall - Knut Arnljot Braa Plottet er greit nok om enn noe påtatt, og det er forsåvidt spennende nok, men Braa skriver rett og slett for dårlig til at jeg klarer å nyte det. Det er også litt skuffende at når handlingen legges til et område jeg (og Braa) kjenner godt, er det såpass mange unødvendige trivielle småfeil. Det er sikkert ikke noe problem for den som ikke er lokalkjent, men det ødelegger rett og slett for meg. Hvordan foregår forresten en reendring av bilder, og når blir en sak en "red hearing"? Fillefeil det også, men unødvendig og ødeleggende.
