8:30 PM Update (Monica):
I’ve decided to slow down a little bit this evening -- pacing myself for tonight, obviously, and also because I'm watching Star Trek out of the corner of one eye and Captain Sisko is hypnotically attractive as per the usual -- and as such, I’m doing a ReRead.
The Castaways of the Flying Dutchman, to be more precise.
I love this book. To be fair, if you replace the main characters with some mice and badgers and an evil rat or two, you have every Redwall book ever written. But no one ever said Brian Jacques wasn't a formula writer. Luckily, I heart the formula! Huzzah!!
Plus, I had suuuuch a crush on Alex when the book first came out. To be fair, I was young and silly. And have you seen the cover of the book? He looks like a pirate. Like a young and slightly less earring-bedecked Jack Sparrow! Love!
In other news, Shel, would you seriously want to marry George Orwell? Seriously? He seems like he'd be... kind of a downer to hang around with all the time. Unlike Terry Brooks. (Terry! Call me!!)
