Helen Books: What book are you reading right now (369* d) RE: Books: What book are you reading right now 24 May 19


In the few weeks prior to my last day at work, i.e. now on leave and will submit resignation form in a week or so, I was reading a couple of Scott Adams' books: Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook; and The Dilbert Principle. They would be extremely funny if they weren't exactly like the management antics at my ex-workplace, so in fact, the books are so real they are scary. I am so glad to be out of that funny farm!

Every now and then I re-read a Clare Francis mystery fiction book. I like her clever, careful plot twists and interesting characters.

I also re-read Margaret Atwood now and then. I re-read The Handmaid's Tale before the TV series started but the series was slow, annoying and not really relating to the book and then they dragged it out into another long, slow series 2, and in a couple of weeks series 3 will start here in Oz. In total, I probably fast forwarded at least 50% of the first two series by skipping the atmospheric/emotion charged scenes so I probably won't bother watching series 3 anyway. I did read an article which said that Margaret Atwood had a lot of communications from her readers and she is planning to write her own sequel. Bring it on, Ms Atwood. I can't wait for the real/intended story rather than the overdone, Hollywood-style treatment.
