The Week in Entertainment
Really almost all I did this week was veg out and read...
BUT! Doctor Who! "Let's Kill Hitler" was quite good. I've never been overly enamored of River Song, but this episode was not just pivotal, it showed us (somewhat) of what she went through becoming who she is. And I did like the way she set up Rory and Amy.
Finished How to Live Safely in a Science-Fictional Universe, which was fascinating. Then read a bunch of mysteries - Ice Blue which was good enough despite the blood typing error; all the Retreival Artist novels by Kristine Katherine Rusch, which are excellent (though I warn you to read them in order because she spoils earlier books in later ones); all the Leigh Koslow series, which are amusing; all the Claresby shorts, also amusing but very light-weight; Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez, quite a ride - funny and thought-provoking both; and finally, the new Inspector Gamache, A Trick of the Light, as well-written and entertaining as the ones that came before it, particularly good in the way Gamache and Jean Guy recover (or don't) from the traumatic shooting that ended the previous novel.
