Writing Can Be Murder

Reading and Watching Wednesday 3-10-10

So I read a book last week that was so bleh that I can’t even remember the name or author. (It was a freebie I’d gotten at a conference and I”d been looking for something light to read.)

I saw RACE on Broadway. Before I tell you my opinion, let me preface it by revealing I didn’t choose what play to see. That said, it was extraordinarily disappointing. (Except for David ALan Grier who was a pleasant surprise.) I didn’t connect with the characters, didn’t find the exchange about race intriguing, and they lost me completely in the second act when it just got stupid. To be fair, the person I went with, who’d chosen it, thought it was “great” and “well-written”.

We watched the movie Flash of Genius. Long Suffering thought it was long and he was suffering. I was mesmerized by the central question. In a nutshell it’s about the guy who invented intermittent windshield wipers. Ford, for all intents and purposes, steals his idea. He becomes obsessed with getting credit for his invention at the cost of his mental health and family.

Did you read or see anything good (or bad) this week?

  1. I gave up on Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton this week. By the second chapter I had no idea who the main character was supposed to be or why. My husband wants to read it so I handed it over happily. I’m desperate for a good book to read.
