Hit or Miss, October 2012

Here’s what I’ve been reading and viewing for the past month.  (You can click on the links for short reviews or comments I’ve left elsewhere.)


  • The Casual Vacancy (J. K. Rowling)
  • Van Helsing (movie)
  • Lust, Caution and other short stories (Eileen Chang)
  • Finding Neverland (movie)
  • Crossing Over (movie)
  • The Other Side of Light (Mishi Saran)
  • The Sheckley Trilogy
  • The Master (Colm Toibin) – not finished yet, but really enjoying it

Along with the most recent issues of several back issues of the magazine The World of Chinese


  • Friends with Benefits (movie)

Neither Hit Nor Miss

  • Material Witness (Vanetta Chapman)  – it was OK, but not a real favorite with me

So how was October reading and viewing for you?
