BOOK REVIEW: Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
A very solid 4 star read.I really did not know very much about this book before I started Sleeping Giants except for what one learns in the blurb.It turns out Sleeping Giants is about the discovery of a giant metallic hand (which unsurprisingly leads to the discovery of a giant robot).The key conceit of the book is that the story is told exclusively in third person documents: transcripts of interviews between the main characters, news reports and other non-prose texts.It's actually quite surprising how well this works. I have seen this done in smaller ways in other books (the ...

Gay Relationships: Fear of Commitment  »  GAYTWOGETHER
Ever read advice columns? I don’t think they could exist without letters from women dating guys who can’t commit. It’s almost a cliché: “Joe and I have been dating for 7 years now, and he still hasn’t asked me to marry him. What’s wrong?”  Gay men might phrase it a little differently, “We’ve been going together for 4 years, but we still aren’t living together.” Or “We started off great! But I still haven’t met his family or co-workers. I don’t feel important to him.” Gay men are probably no different from other men in their level of comfort around ...
