Perth’s lovely post vibrant winter weather means that it’s book burning season again! The Cuban Book Burning Book Club welcomed some new members and some hot new titles.
First, the Bride Stripped Bare by Anonymous. Quotes, reviews: Not a feminist text. Anonymous? Fuck off. Stupid and boring. Ok, burn it.
One of two Wintons. Tim’s first novel and Vogel winner. Endless mentions of fish. The Open Swimmer is basically a boring list of fish. Not as terrible as Cloud Street, but nobody put their hands up to save it all the same. Burn. The dry paper went up well.
A terrible wanker of a journalist who lived at the Savoy and reviewed Princess Margaret’s tits. (Real and magnificent) Burn.
I know one if the most popular CBBBC requests is Power of One. Didn’t have that, but another Courtney hit the flames. Quotes, review: Dreary. I couldn’t finish it.
It’s a little easy to decide to burn Dan Brown, but nevertheless..Quotes and reviews: What’s with the fucking ellipsis? Every…fucking…sentence… A cat…and a…(wait for the payoff)…dog.
A book burnt almost entirely on the authour having fire extinguishers explode in flames. Yes.
And another Winton? Not one I have read myself, but I’m guessing it’s another list of fish? It burned up well.
