Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky

In books read on May 28, 2008

I thought this would be an interesting read because it's all about stuff I know quite a lot about, basically people using the internet and other 21st century technologies to organise themselves and make things happen that would never have happened before. In the beginning though I found it a bit on the boring side. Mostly this was because I know quite a lot about the subject. A good proportion of the examples used in the text were already familiar to me. And I've read the blogs of practically everybody thanked by the author, many of whom are also quoted in the book.

In the end though I gained something from reading this in book form rather than as a lot of little stories on the net. There were plenty of examples here that I hadn't heard about and plenty of extra elucidation about things I thought I understood. A worthwhile and entertaining read.

Borrowed.

The Eye in the Door by Pat Barker

In books read on May 26, 2008

This is the second part of a trilogy; I loved the first volume and put off reading this one for a few months because I didn't want to race through the books too fast and get burnt out (it's happened to me too many times before!).

Initially I loved this book just as much but as it went on I became confused, I missed matching up characters with their previous appearances in the book, and therefore began to put it down more which just made things worse. I definitely lost the plot somewhere!

I'll certainly read the third volume, and I'm not really sure what was wrong with this one, but I hope for a better experience next time
