Just finished it. It was OK, nothing special. Enjoyable run through the nostalgic references but the plot was a bit thin & predictable, with an ending that seemed rushed and very 'easy'.

Finally I hardly collected very complete compilation of Ivan Bunin works (incl. notes, 'Cursed days' - which is painful to read, - plus his poems, letters and memoirs).

He is the best in Russian literature and was a younger and close, respectful friend of Anton Chekhov.

Anyone who really want to step up deeply in Russian classical and post-classical prose should start with his 'Dark Avenues': https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Avenues Very alive and tragic!

Also Bunin have shortstory 'Петлистые уши'\''Petlistye's ears'' which is like Dostoevsky without his usual shit - one of the best ever.

Actually this article about Ivan Bunin is well written: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Bunin

Have you ever written the book your favorite band is named after?

Do you possibly mean "read"? Last I checked, Milton had been dead for several hundred years. ;)

Not in any particular need of an antidote for chaos, but my stepson read this and found it enlightening. I like listening to Jordan Peterson, and while I don't agree with everything he says, at least he's fucking thought about it before he opens his mouth.

He is an interesting case. Sometimes he annoys me, but he does have some value for sure, especially when talking about his own field. He does tend to step outside of it too much though and talks about things he knows little about. Having said that, the left wing attack on him is completely tiresome. They paint him out as a right wing conservative who wants to turn back the clock when in reality most of his views seem based on research. Whether that research is wrong or not is a completely separate issue from whether he is operating from a specific political agenda, but the left have problems distinguishing between the two. Psychologists refer to that as projection.

I put this on my Amazon wishlist before she died after it was recommended by two different Anarchist podcasts I listen to but I only recently got round to picking it up.

Halfway through reading The Loch by Steve Alten.


You're probably going to hear Steve Alten's name getting mentioned in the media soon as he wrote the "Meg" series of books about 70ft prehistoric sharks, the first of which has just been adapted for the big screen and comes out in August starring Jason Statham.

Now, Alten isn't the greatest writer in the world (something, to his credit, he readily acknowledges himself), but he does know how to tell a good story. All five (soon to be six) Meg novels are fast-paced and massively enjoyable tales of hungry sharks and dead swimmers, and I would heartily recommend them to anyone that way inclined.

In the last Meg book, "Night Stalkers", Alten decided to cross over into another couple of stories he had written by introducing the main character from those, so I felt duty bound to check them out. The Loch being the first of the two.

Never has the phrase "one trick pony" been so painfully accurate. Although the Meg books aren't perfect (apart from the fourth one - that's just fucking ace), the story and the characters overshadow the failings by a mile. However, The Loch is so bad it actually hurts. An American trying to write in a Scottish accent is bad enough, but there's just no story here, just chapter after chapter of pointless history lessons, and a complete lack of understanding of British law enforcement. Er, Steve? Scotland doesn't have the death penalty, and the Scottish police do not have sheriffs.

I'm not even sure I can be arsed to finish the stupid thing, but I probably will as it leads onto the next book, Vostok, which I can only pray is better than this.
