Firstly, I realize I completely skipped over reviewing The Mysterious Benedict Society. Don’t worry, my trusty followers, (You know, those of you that I forced to follow me…) I’ll have the review up soon. I wrote it in my notebook, then I changed bags, then I changed bags again, then the LIRR overcharged me for my ticket. You know how it goes.
There is some sort of snooty aspect to this book that makes me feel as though stating that I didn’t really enjoy it means stating that I didn’t really “get” it. I get it. At least I think I do. A pot addled writing professor can’t seem to finish his mammoth manuscript for his magnum opus – Wonder Boys, which turns out to be hugely symbolic of his failure at life. And once he lets go, he’s free.
There’s also a tuba.
