Books for Breakfast - Book Reviews With a Twist:
A blog about books. And cocktails. Nothing is more literary than alcoholism.
TELL ME ABOUT ITDrood is my life right now, and I'm loving it!
How far are you? I just reached p. 50... don't you think that Simmons came across all of this information while doing research for "The Terror"?
Never heard of it, now I'm interested.
I have about 20 pages left, which I'll finish the second I get home from work (I'm through with lugging it to work everyday, which I did all last week).I definitely noticed The Terror's influence here...I've heard many say that Drood isn't as good as The Terror, but I disagree. I'm loving it. Now I want to read everything Simmons has ever written.
I'm about halfway through and need to take a break. It's just too much Dickens and Wilkie's back story right now.Can't remember what else I've read of Simmons, but I don't think anything compares to THE TERROR. I can't wait to read your review!
I JUST finished. Review will be up tomorrow morning, but I can say right now that I absolutely loved it.
DROOOOOOD.I need to finish this book. I have a pile of 10-12 books teetering on my bedside table. Oh, Wilkie!
