Reading List Revisited

| | Comments (3)

Presently in addition to the list of last week I have added:

Abbot Vonier A Key to the Doctrine of the Eucharist available from Zaccheus Press

Gail Carson Levine Ella Enchanted

Robin McKinley Spindle's End

Gerald Vann O.P. The Aquinas Perscription

Joel Giallanze CSC Questions Jesus Asked

Jacques Maritain Art and Morality

All very fine books. I am also looking into the "Redwall" series of Brian Jacques, although with a bit of trepidation--I've not cared for Animal centered books post Wind in the Willows. I found Watership Down obnoxious and wearisome--though I must confess a weakness for Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H. so it's possible that the Jacques book may be to my liking. I couldn't find the first in the series (Redwall? ) so I've got a copy of Mossflower.

I hope you'll like the Redwall books. To me, they become repititious after the first few, but my son loves them all. He still collects them at 17!

And you've got to love the names, particularly for the bad guys (and girls) Cluny the Scourge, Tsarmina the Cat.....

Loved saying those out loud as we were reading them....

"Art and Morality" looks very interesting. Looking forward to anything you might blog on it.

In a sense, Mossflower is the first book of the series, since it's a 'prequel' to Redwall, so it's a good place to start. They're quite fun books, especially the amusing dialects, but I agree with Terry that they're a bit repetitive. Lots of feasts, which always made me hungry. They're not at all like Watership Down.
