Last time out, I gave you the literary equivalent of the Vietnam War by way of a review. I apologize. Again. I had a lot of info to get through, but let’s see if I can do it in a less murderously insane fashion this time out, by which I mean: “Shorter”

EPISODE REVIEW: Defying Gravity: “Eve Ate The Apple” (Episode 9, Not broadcast in the US)

As anyone reading this knows, the network has more-or-less abandoned “Defying Gravity,“ and made a hokey announcement that episode 8 was the “Season Finale,“ when in fact there’s at least four more episodes in the can. I’d asked our foreign readers to pitch in, but so far no dice. In the meantime, astute Republibot-in-Training “nwkeys01” actually found the episode online. Special thanks, man (I assume). We will now all pause for 15 seconds to sing your praises.

I reviewed the sequel to this book, “The Chariots Still Crash” a bit ago, and quite enjoyed it. It was far from the greatest book ever written, but it had a very formative effect on my when I was young, and it was nice to re-read it now and see that it wasn’t total crap.

Alas, the prequel doesn’t hold up so well.

Ah, this book was like revisiting the neighborhood I lived in as a kid, I just rocked hard on the nostalgia. Back in the day, when I was a fanatic, I checked this book and it’s prequel (“Crash Go The Chariots”) out of the church library multiple times, frequently before long car trips so I’d have something interesting to read. Now that I’m not a fanatic anymore, I’m sort of surprised how well “The Chariots Still Crash” holds up, actually.
