Whoops, I just deleted my entire post. It wasn't any good anyway. I stopped briefly by a blog about comic books the other day and I remembered that I have a box of X-men, about 100 issues, and etc comic books in my apartment. I have no idea what to do with them. I like the idea of buying a cool house and wallpapering my bathroom with them. Some guy on MTV had this done. They are probably less valuable than wallpaper and farmore interesting. I used to think the new issue of X-Men would be so awesome. I kept hoping for a good story and cool action. I was pretty disappointed every month. At the time, I was reading a lot of Dragonlance books and I don't know which was the bigger waste of time and money. At least now I am not curious about either comics or Dragonlance books.
And now for something completely different...
I just finished reading The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is the sixth book in the Chronicles of Narnia, but the first in chronological order. It details the creation and founding of the land of Narnia. I found it to be a quick read and pretty good. I like Lewis's style and brevity. He could easily have made that book longer but it was totally unnecessary, unlike R. Jordan. I suppose that since it was written for children, simple language is helpful. The action was not simple and the Ruined World of Charn was pretty cool. It reminded me of some of the stories written by Lovecraft and about some of his concepts. If you haven't read any of these books, Lovecraft or Lewis, I recommend that you do. I have also liked Lewis' The Great Divorce and Out of the Silent Planet. My next book is Perelandra, the second in the Space series by Lewis.
Tomorrow's post is all about Socrates and the law.
