Cecily's book reviews

In general I've written reviews of every book I've read since I joined GoodReads (RIP) in May 08, along with one or two I read prior to that. More recent reviews tend to be longer (sometimes a tad too long?). I always carry a book, though I don't get as much time as I'd like to get engrossed - life is busy, but in a good way. Too many of my favourite authors died without writing enough! Apart from reading, and writing about reading, I enjoy Scrabble, good restaurants, woodland, and attending the theatre.
Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut Apocalyptic sci fi/utopia revolving around ice-nine (side effect of developing nuclear bombs), with lots of religious philosophy (Bokonism), i.e. that people need the reassurance of beliefs regardless of whether they are true or not - which they aren't.

Note to self: Before rereading, read Manny's review: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/37974967
