Top 100 Graphic Novels, Book #100 – Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness

This is actually book 3 of the Scott Pilgrim series, but it is the 100th entry in the list I am working on, so it is book #1 on my reading order.

Confused yet?

Anyway, I laughed a lot reading this, Scott is a kind of backdrop character in this volume with Envy and Ramona playing the more main roles as the sympathetic and not so sympathetic leads.  I’ll leave it to other readers to decide for themselves which is which.

Todd is the big douche throughout, and shows his true colors more than once.  He was played way cooler in the movie than in the book.  (by Brandon Routh)

This is the tale of when Scott’s ex, Envy, shows back up with her band that includes one of the evil exes of Ramona’s that Scott must defeat in order to date Ramona.  That’s it, there are fun things hidden all the way through, but that is the meat of the story.

“You cocky cock!”

I’ll give this a 7 out of 10.  It does a pretty good job of explaining the previous books, and so it can sort of stand on its own.

Next week, Book #99 (#2) – Punisher Born

Stephen King book club, book #6 – Gerald’s Game

Gerald’s Game

 

Sigh, it is so difficult to review a book I totally loathe, but I will try.

I’ve read this King book twice, once in the late 90s, and then the second time for this book club.  I couldn’t stand it either time.  I understand the need to find feminism in this story, and woman growth to rise above the evils of man, but, seriously??  Blah to a woman handcuffed to a bed for 275 pages!

Jessie Burlingame is a weak protagonist.  At least to me, and this is my review, and my blog, so my opinion rules.  Comment and argue with me if you disagree, I’d welcome and enjoy the distraction from so boring a tale.  Jessie does find solace in her head with 3 voices that shape the story with their individual personas.

Then we have a hungry dog just out for a meal, why try to deter him from finally eating after being abandoned?  How unfair, just because you’re unhappily chained up doesn’t mean he can’t have some fun, sheesh.

Ah, Raymond Andrew Joubert, the only saving grace of this story.  You are tormentingly creepy, and a perfect thing to haunt and scare our “heroine” while she struggles with her reneging on her love game promises with her husband.

“You’re not real!  You’re not anyone!”

King tries to interweave sexual abuse into the story, and forces an eclipse connection to another, far better book, but in the end, I was relieved and content when page 332 came and disappeared onto the book shelf for the rest of time.

If not for Joubert, I would have nothing positive to say here, and I am unapologetic for that.

This book gets my lowest rating, a 1 out of 10.  I don’t give zeros, because there is always at least a 1 that I can pull out of anything, no matter how awful the experience is.

I know there’s now a movie for some ungodly reason, and you can be sure I won’t waste my Netflix time to watch it.  Good luck to those who do, I will pray for you.

Top 100 graphic novels of all time, explanation

So, I bough this magazine the other day at B&N,

20171023_233416

And I decided to “read” my way through their list, starting at 100, and so on.  Obviously, I don’t mean read through the magazine, I mean read each book as they are ranked.

I’ll try to do one book a week, and the only spoilers given in this list will be the rankings from the magazine, I’ll do my very best to not give away anything from the selections themselves.

First up is Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness, or Scott Pilgrim book 3.  My “review” and thoughts will be coming as soon as I’m done with the book.

Hope anyone likes this new project as an add-on to my King book club and other random ramblings from my dripping mind.

 

 

Songpop, half off apps, and the trail of Xanax

The words to live by this Saturday night.

One, a game I am addicted to and spend farrr more hours playing than I probably should.

The next, a thing I am venturing out to do even though I am petrified of Saturday night crowds.

The third, a mater’s little helper that will allow me to do my venturing.

If you are uninterested, I do not blame you.  My life is hardly top notch material, and definitely not worthy of time spent on the internet.

Alas, I am here writing for me, and if any one else feels compelled to follow along, be my guest, there is room in my Chrysler that seats about 20.

Almost 2000 games played per week, so many songs, so many notes, that is 10,000 songs.  I am a seeker of mastering the playlist, 23 and counting.  I do try and annihilate all in my virtual musical path, but in the end, all I am after, is that fifth note and a hopeful badge to follow.

Zannies, ahh, many a night have you gotten me through.  Floating above the sewers, avoiding the gloved clown hands.  I feel a long island iced tea in my near future and then some delicious pretzels and beer cheeeezzee.

Let’s go people, come along on my not so fantastic voyage, and be amazed at the things and occurrences that fascinate my brain, drugged or not.

Tomorrow, back to life, and whatever reality awaits, but tonight, live on the edge of nothing.

Float on, my mousers, float on.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
