Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

  • Mr. Timothy, by Louis Bayard, copyright 2003; read by Mark Honan; BBC Audiobooks America, 2003; produced in by arrangement with HarperCollins Publishers, Inc. An odd sort of sequel to Dicken's A Christmas Carol, dealing with Timothy Cratchet's attempts as a young adult to deal with the death of his father and the overwhelming and smothering benevolence of his kindly uncle Ebeneezer, along with a number of unpleasant murders of young girls in mid-19th century London. Despite my expectations and a really alarming verbosity I ended up rather enjoying this.

  • Drumbeat, by Dudley Pope, copyright 1968; Pocket Books, 1970.

  • Ramage's Diamond, by Dudley Pope, copyright 1976; Avon Books, January 1982. I've enjoyed what I've read so far of Pope's Ramage books, and was happy to find this one in a local library, along with a number of other volumes in the series.
