December Books 12) Gateway 13) Eats Shoots and Leaves

12) Gateway by Frederik Pohl. As good as I remembered it as being. Wrote full review for my website.

13) Eats Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss. An occasionally entertaining rant against contemporary (lack of) punctuation. I think it’s all a bit exaggerated myself; language is dynamic, not static, and I doubt that the level of literacy in general has deteriorated much in recent decades; what has happened is that more people are writing, so you are more likely to encounter people with poor writing style than would have been the case fifteen years ago.

    Hartelijk bedankt voor uw analyse. Ik stemde op UUP in Strangford omdat ik Mike Nesbitt ken en was dus tevreden dat hij een zetel heeft gewonnen. Het was zeker geen goede verkiezing voor de UUP en SDLP die nu moet meer samenwerken om het centrum te versterken. Ten slotte, ik heb van je analyse op BBC1 NI genoten.

    Oh en kent u trouwens Malachy Vallely? Ik bleef lang geleden aan het instituut in Leuven.

    Met vriendelijke groeten
