Adjectival reviews

I've been soaking in a lot of music, movies, and books in the past few weeks, so I can't possibly begin to review them all, but I thought it might be fun to try to boil each one down to a few adjectives.

Thin Ice: Unlocking the Secrets of Climate in the World's Highest Mountains (Mark Bowen): accessible, comprehensive, engaging, long
Mountaineering Essays (John Muir): inspiring, historical, picturesque
In a Sunburned Country (Bill Bryson): unerring, funny, evocative

West Wing Season 1: engrossing, frustrating, well-written, addictive
Lord of War: sobering
Idiocracy: indescribable, crass, dystopian, recommended
A Scanner Darkly: daring, dystopian, disappointing

Extraordinary Machine - Fiona Apple: worthy, engrossing, substantive

Guess this is just another way of saying that there's no baby in my life yet. That and I'm seemingly utterly incapable of doing any decent work or blogging.

I really enjoy Bill Bryson. Good choice!

The West Wing is addictive! Watch out. I've never read any Bill Bryson but have always intended to.

West Wing, so addictive! It goes downhill a bit in the 5th season when they change producers but then gets better in the 6th and 7th. We are actually on our second time through watching the whole thing :)

Seriously, don't leave us for five days when a baby is imminent! I was salivating for details. And yes, Bill Bryson is a lovely human being.
