The Homeward Bounders, and March Magics Wrapup
|By far the best cover ever done
Kind of funny to have a wrapup two weeks after the event ends, but such is life. I spend too much time at my desk for work, and then fail to fit the blogging in. I actually have several books to share, but getting to it is a different thing!
My final read for March Magics was The Homeward Bounders, a long-time favorite. I love how DWJ took the idea of role-playing games, mixed it up with a multi-verse and threw in Prometheus, and bam: amazing story. Jamie, Helen, and Joris are all wonderful characters, and Jamie is so understatedly tragic.*
I don't have a lot new to say about this story this time, but I wanted to give it its due, and thank Kristen for hosting March Magics even though this is a difficult time. The choice of DIY turned out to be far more appropriate than anyone imagined! I was grateful to have some DWJ to read in the middle of all this muddle.
Looking forward to next year... (assuming 2020 doesn't come up with a robot zombie apocalypse just to round things out)...
*I said Mordion might be more tragic, but I've changed my mind again. Jamie wins that contest.
