On that note, I also found it funny how he repeats the lyrics to the fictional song ďBaby Can You Dig Your ManĒ even though they scan terribly and itís hard to imagine a song based around them ever being good.
From what I remember book 5 is a forgettable self contained story that doesnít advance the plot at all, and 6 just shuffles plot threads around in preparation for the finale. Iíd be interested to hear your reaction to some of what goes on, though. King is a man impressively packed with ideas, but also with a devolved ability to recognise good ones from bad.
Trainspotting 2 I quite liked but in retrospect that might have just been relief that it wasnít an embarrassing failure. Itís probably better than Porno, the book itís partially based on, but I forgot about it almost immediately. The books (the first one at least) are worth checking out if you havenít already.
Iím am that rarest of beasts, an Alien Covenant defender! I have little interest in the ďAlienĒ aspects at all, but I love the continuing adventures of David the mad robot and the weird circle of life bioengineering stuff. It took the half thought out unfinished plot threads from Prometheus and did something coherent with them.
Too bad it flopped and everyone hates it, now I wonít get a third thatís a full on body horror epic about David's planet of human test subjects.
