Even with nougat, you can have a perfect moment.

I am a very nagging person, a fan of terry pratchett, former fan of gaiman who might come back to him after I'm done with pratchett, life-long sherlockian, and some other labels I can't remember at the moment or haven't got yet. I also read layman maths books sometimes to try to save my hopeless academic writing.

Oh yes, books will be recorded in the language I read them in.

i finished the bbc audiodrama version of it! I like it. probably because i haven't finished the book yet so i like it. but yeah i think i stopped the book where it starts to get graphically violent, and i feel the audio version of it, despite still having that, doesn't feel as much. maybe it's more effective when I have to build the scene from text by imagining it myself.

Themewise, ah it is indeed an American Gods. AG the book has touched on that theme of being a shadow of a man, but I think that theme got amplified in the show, and Anasi boys the audiodrama made it very central, the naming, the finding yourself. Supposedly, the other thing is about the story. I feel the audiodrama made it a bit secondary and I suspect that may be what I'd pick up more from reading the book. …

uh. I think the best thing about it is it brought back more DS9, and the worst of it is ...... the series is set out to kill off the novel-verse? I mean... if you've got that in mind, everything is just sort of... done. It doesn't feel intriguing, and I don't think this is the sort of doomed hero arc I like.

and you know, you always kill someone important then bring them back, that would make killing them less significant an act if you don't really do it well, and well, I think what with ezri and miles is pretty disappointing to me. idk. it's a bit bland. the only unpredictability probably comes with julian, but .... i also don't like what you did with julian, and i realise the why is because you alana-bloomed him, you broke him. and what was so precious about julian is the …

Moments Asunder (Paperback, 2021, Pocket Books) No rating

Starfleet's finest faces a challenge unlike any other. Tomorrow is doomed. Time is coming apart. …

I suppose this should be categoried as adventure / action, it is far from what I like about DS9. This is pretty much completing tasks - mystery solving - dashing everywhere to complete new levels, not really a genre I like. It's .... underwhelming that the authors wrote it out of the motivation to reconcile the continuity issues brought up by doing new ST series after the 15 years break. Stability of time-space continuum is overrated, stop your 3D-creature-centred point of view! (?

everyone is still adorable. More Dax backstory esp the details of Joran, painful hinting of Julian's unrevealed secret, Worf being worf and Kira being Kira, Trill symbiosis commission being a terrible organisation ( so adorable, Dax gets best versed in creole/cajun food among all earth food because of Sisko! Julian introduced pizza to colleagues! Dax: you don't have a pot of gumbo waiting for me? I feel so unwelcomed.

(I wonder if I start with TNG novels, maybe I can learn to like the people better, then I would be able to watch the series (

my only question is why didn't you be a writer yourself. But maybe because this is fanfic and not original story, it is different when you have to make up an original character with original stories. wow. I went for a closure, Andrew wrote it for his closure, it's perfect for me. Your Cardassian lifestyle is .... familiarly traumatic.

听是听完了,跟没听一样,我什么都不记得,除了体验到了文体风格。我觉得这个还是以后看文字吧.... 那段剧本样式的用audiobook朗诵全文我真的跟不上,这个版本朗诵剧本的水平简直跟我念诗一样糟糕 然而我觉得可能我也不会看文本了,我听到记得的故事我都不喜欢,。。。。我就不喜欢这些人,没有办法,。。。。I understand but I don't have to like what I understand, is the thing
