psocoptera: ink drawing of celtic knot (ha!)
[personal profile] psocoptera
Justine Larbalestier's latest makes for very depressing reading given current events. It's well done, just, bleah. Nothing I needed. Major content warning behind the first spoiler cut, further discussion behind the second.
1.Child harm, child death.
2.I guess I just don't get writing books about how things are bleak and hopeless and evil is always going to win because it has more in its arsenal than good. I mean, maybe it's true, but unless you're going past that and talking about how people can try to live in the face of that, what exactly is it that you have to offer? This is probably where I have to disclaim that I just don't understand horror as a genre, I know lots of people like it but I just don't get the point of ugly tragedy. (Cathartic tragedy, yes.)
