Did Not Complete - Viriconium

Monday, March 27, 2006

I am sad to report that I will not be completing M. John Harrison’s Viriconium.  I made it some 60 pages into the first book The Pastel City, but the book just could not hold my interest.  I started this book way back before The Reality Dysfunction, Claw of the Conciliator, Finding Serenity, and Hyperion.  I have finished three of those books and I’m now farther into Hyperion than I was into Viriconium.  I know it’s a collection of three short novels and some short stories, but if I can’t make it through one short novel because I don’t care what happens, it isn’t worth the time spent reading.  Maybe there is something really special later on in the book, but I just won’t be finding out. 


This way I’ll be able to get through what I have at home: Hyperion, A Knight of the Word, and Legacies.  When that is done, I think I’ll be bringing home Memories of Ice from the library and get back into this Malazan world.  Now I wonder if the library has more of Erikson’s novellas (I do believe The Healthy Dead is next since I’ve read Blood Follows).

Mwahaha, my persuasive powers cannot be resisted.

Behold my powers of prediction!

In two, perhaps three, weeks from now you shall - in a fevered state! - order parts five and six in the Malazan series from Resistance is futile. We are the Erikson.
