  2. Will participation in the book club require understanding of the terms “outre,” “picaresque,” “weirdism,” and understanding of that whole last sentence? If so, I’m underqualified.

  3. Well it is supposed to help increase your vocabulary. I must admit I had to reach for a dictionary on a few of those words as well. I

  4. Try substituting “outre” with “out there,” “picaresque” with “picturesque,” and “weirdists” with “weirdos.” It doesn’t mean the same thing, but it’s funny. Kind of.

    Other reviews I’ve read have stated that this story is a bit of a genre-bender. It’s basically a crime thriller in a fantastic setting.

  5. Well, I bought it on the way home from work and I’ve enjoyed it so far. Very different feel for the genre. I’m a little concerned that it may be a bit crass for some of our more refined club members, but the dialogue had me chuckling. The “Gentleman Bastards” is a perfect name for their group. 🙂

  7. Yeah, I was a bit taken aback with the language when I started it after coming home from the bookstore. The dangers of picking something you’ve never read . . . Sorry, folks!

  8. I read quite a bit of this over the weekend. I love it. The language, I think, mellows out. (Either that, or I got so used to it I don’t notice anymore.) He’s got a pretty good mystery going, along with a great “confidence scam.”

  9. Ugh. Mistborn is on like quadruple hold at the library. I will do my best…

  10. Yeah, I’ll bet Brandon Sanderson’s sales have multiplied by a hundred since he was chosen to finish the final WoT novel.

  11. Hey, I finished Mistborn finally! I also just finished book 2. Quite good, I must say.

  12. So, tomorrow night (10/3/09) is our scheduled meeting for The Count of Monte Cristo, right? Is it going to be a conflict with the Priesthood Sesh of General Conference?
    Brooke and I take a pretty relaxed approached to GenConf, as in “General Conference? Yippee, no church!” so we’ll still be available for book clubbing tomorrow night. Just wanted to see if anybody wanted to switch nights or something, because we’d be down for that too.
