A book I love:
There are so many things I love about The Hitchhiker’s Guide To the Galaxy. I love the story. I love the humor. I love the characters. I love the sarcasm. I love the in-jokes. When the movie came out in 2005, I was so excited. I remember sitting in a quiet theater, eagerly waiting for the movie to start. In a burst of enthusiasm, I shouted, “42!!!” raising my fists to the ceiling. From the back row came a man’s voice, “ALL HAIL ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX!!” I turned around with a “YEEEA!!!” to which he answered, “YEEEA!!!” The whole audience looked us like we were idiots. Loved it.
A book I didn’t love:
These are my future husband’s favorite books, by his favorite author. He encouraged me to read this particular one because there’s a tv show coming up soon based on the book. I don’t really do the fantasy genre, but I decided to give it a go. I’m not done yet, but I’m on like Chapter Seven and just now met the damn main protagonist of the whole book. It’s slow going, I don’t much care for the plot or the characters, but I’m going to muddle through in the hopes:
A) I actually start to like it
B) I can figure out why Chad likes it
C) I can hurry up and read something else
See you on Day 9.
