A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Lukewarm Haunting

The Green Man (New York Review Books Classics) - Michael Dirda, Kingsley Amis

Okay novel that loses something by being a bit dated and having a ghost story that lacks much suspense. The fact that we never really like the main character doesn't help.

I'm not sure if the things about threesomes, lesbianism, and adultery were still considered edgy in 1969, but they lack any excitement today except to the most prudish.

The entire thing just seemed somewhat tepid to me.
