S K Trevayne: The ice twins

so far, so good


rereading the second book of Jeff Povey's trilogy before moving on to the unread third.

Rev's obsession on Johnson and Other-Johnson is driving me up the wall in these books. You're trapped in another dimension, you have much more important stuff to think of, to say nothing of the fact that Johnson seems to be very wishywashy, and Other-Johnson is doing nothing less than mindrape. She should forget about J, and run for the hills when it comes to O-J!

These books could have been so exciting if that nonsense had been downplayed.

it also really annoys me that they keep calling the other versions of themselves aliens. They're just themselves from another dimension, stop with the alien crap.

Du Maurier, Daphne. The Infernal World of Branwell Brontë. London: Virago, 2006.

"As a bold and gifted child, Branwell Brontë's promise seemed boundless to the three adoring sisters over whom his rule was complete. But as an adult, the precocious flame of genius distorted and burned low. With neither the strength nor the resources to counter rejection, unable to sell his paintings or publish his books, Branwell became a spectre in the Brontë story, in pathetic contrast with the astonishing achievements of his sisters.

Daphne du Maurier concentrates all her biographer's skill on the shadowy figure of Branwell Brontë, and no reader could fail to be intensely moved by Branwell's final retreat into laudanum, alcohol - and death."

:heart:


Except, how much is in your power to change?

My negativity has already consumed me
