November Books 20) Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together, by Bryan Lee O’Malley

I’ve generally been enjoying these graphic novels about Scott and his battles with his girlfriend’s evil exes, but I thought this one was particularly good: hitting Scott’s angst about commitment to Ramona, working out the depth of his own feelings, at the same time as their friendship group, which has been a fairly stable background through the first three volumes, undergoes some fairly radical changes, with ghosts from Scott’s past and confused sexuality thrown in. A high point of the series so far.

  1. That Everest article was really interesting. I’ve read Jon Krakauer’s ‘Into Thin Air’ and Conrad Anker and David Roberts’ ‘The Lost Explorer: Finding Mallory on Mt Everest’, and although I’ve no interest in climbing myself, I found both accounts absolutely rivetting. There’s something incredibly compelling about Mt Everest, so it doesn’t surprise me at all that so many people are drawn to it and in some cases take (IMO) stupid risks to climb it.
