True mumblings, from a junior doctor...

Robert Rankin

Thanks to my Kindle I have recently been reading Robert Rankin. His books are wonderfully funny, with a great bit of Terry Pratchett-esque colloquialism - all very down to earth, but with beautiful flights of fancy too.

I have read 1 book previously (the Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse - fabulous) and these two - Necrophenia and Japanese Devil Fish Girl were on my Kindle.

The newest (Japanese Devil Fish Girl) is the best of the latest two - truly a writer improving with age!

I would definitely read all of his books. Easy to read, great comedy and very cleverly insightful!

The Kindle Cometh...

It is awesome...

I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to like it, but after my initial reticence I have fully embraced it. All my books are now bought for this. I read the paper on this. I read pdfs and journal papers on this. It is my little friend.

It is not an iPad.

It is not a laptop.

It is, like the iPod was for music, the quintessentially perfect reading device. It looks like a book, acts like a book, holds many books. The whispernet is fabulous - literally turn it on just as I get to the tube (underground, no reception) and the paper is already there!
