Too Many Guns and Robots, Not Enough Hobbits ~ December’s Bookish Adventures

The last post that has anything to do with 2020, I do believe.


The Daybreakers

Louis L’Amour

The sheer love of the land in this book, especially the oft-maligned beauty of Kansas (I’m a Kansan by birth, you know, and very fond of the state), would’ve made it a new favorite even if it weren’t for the characters. Tyrell says: “Have you seen those Kansas plains? Have you seen the grass stretch away from you to the horizon? Grass and nothing but grass except for flowers here and there and maybe the white of buffalo bones, but grass moving gentle under the long wind, moving like a restless sea with the hand of God upon it” where most folks say: “Ugh, so much grass. So flat. So boring” and this is why I like Tyrell and not them.

Because, Tye. Let’s talk about Tye. I thought Tell was my favorite Sackett brother, but I’m no longer so sure. Tye is this nineteen-year-old kid, a hard worker and a fast gun, but a kid, a kid who’s competent and dangerous and who knows it. But who’s also a little scared of that side of himself, who is gentle because he’s capable of being so much the opposite. (It’s such a weirdly attractive quality to me.)

He says things like: “There would be trouble, but man is born to trouble, and it is best to meet it when it comes and not lose sleep until it does.” And he’s non-confrontational. He isn’t your stereotypical Western hero with a snarky reply ready for every bad guy. Instead he’s just very calm and cool and in his head he goes: “You stick your finger in the water and you pull it out, and that’s how much of a hole you leave when you’re gone.”

Like, you just got burned, son. If only you knew it.

Tye’s not a talker, see. He’s an observer. He says: “Right then I felt sorry for Martin Brady, although his kind would last longer than my kind because people have a greater tolerance for evil than for violence.” And if that’s not the most true thing I’ve ever heard…

Plus, he’s loyal. He’s friends with everyone, though close friends with almost no one. He doesn’t mind staying in the shadows while other people get all the attention – in fact, he prefers it that way. He’s completely secure.

I love him and I love this book.

The showdown at the end is so good, too. I’m sure many Westerns end with similar showdowns, but this one’s just GOOD. I think I don’t care if stories are original. I just care if they’re good. Which this one really, really was.

Illuminae

Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Nowadays, besides the occasional paragraphs snatched between classes or in line at the grocery store, I mostly only read at night. Right before bed. Which is what I tried to do with this book, and which I regretted very much.

…I was up till two a.m., you guys. Most of that time was not spent reading. Most of it my brain was just too freaked out to sleep.

A list of the ways this book hits altogether too close to home (note: all of this is minorly spoilery, so caution is urged):


  • Super contagious virus (this is even freakier in the present context BECAUSE of the fact that COVID has such low fatality rates – because so does the Phobos virus! At first! Then it mutates and oh you guys *clutches nearest human* it’s so creepy, it’s so so creepy, it’s so so so so so creepy oh my gosh)
  • Terrifyingly effective information censoring from people in authority who refuse to tell the masses what’s going on, are hiding something big and bad, and will go to literally any length to enforce their censorship. *shudders in 2021*
  • AI that’s capable of mimicking an actual human well enough to fool someone who knows that person well…….

And a list of (also minorly infested by spoilers) things I didn’t like so much:


  • All the cussing. Yes it was mostly blacked out and yes I still knew exactly what was being said.
  • All the, erm, content. Seriously. Could you STOP.
  • My favorite character died, so thanks for THAT, authors.
  • There’s this thing authors seem to ALWAYS feel the need to do, and I’m so tired of it, where if there’s a tense situation where hard decisions must be made and leadership must be assumed, people make the wrong decision at least once. Like, the good people. The good people who were previously mad at the bad people for doing the exact same thing they’re now doing themselves. I had a doubt and can’t go back to check, that actually the new commander of the Hypatia didn’t do what Kady thought she did, that maybe it was all part of AIDAN’s plan to manipulate what Kady saw going on, but I don’t think that’s what happened and I’m just SO ANNOYED. Writing it off as “panic, and the stress of assuming a leadership role you weren’t planning on having to take” is dumb, because she literally could have done the PROPER thing without endangering ANYONE. Morally grey character? Okay, I can deal. Character who randomly acts like an idiot so the book can score mOrAL CoMPLExitY points? aarGRGGHHGHH STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT /rant

In short: this book is Star Trek for the modern teenager. I love Star Trek and I’m not a teenager, but I love Star Trek very much. Hence my feelings for this book.

The Quiet Gentleman

Georgette Heyer

I like Georgette Heyer but only occasionally do I love her. This is a rare case where the heroine is better than the hero (ridiculously sensible and prosaic; it’s quite fun) and a sadly normal case where I was not satisfied by the fate meted out to the villain of the mystery. (I feel like we shouldn’t just turn murderers loose on the world, you know?)

Rogue Protocol

Martha Wells

Possibly my favorite of the three Murderbot novellas I’ve read so far. Set on a remote planet outside Corporation Rim, in an abandoned terraforming facility, where humans are actually sometimes used for security (our favorite curmudgeonly SecUnit is aghast at their inefficiency and once again reluctantly ends up looking out for them) and the company is up to no good (OF COURSE) and the ending kind of rips your heart out a little bit because wow, Murderbot. Maybe you aren’t quite as smart as you think you are. Maybe you could stand to be a little kinder. And maybe you need a very big hug.

Celtic Tales

The illustrations in this are so pretty. I meant to take some pictures before I gave it back to the friend who kindly lent it to me, but…I forgot.

Anyway, it’s a collection of folk tales from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Brittany, and I actually hadn’t read most of them! The Witch of Lok Island is a new favorite story of mine, though. Two peasants want to marry but they want to have money when they marry, so the guy goes off to seek his fortune first. Unfortunately, he gets turned into a fish.

The girl, being sensible, knew something like this would happen and goes off to rescue him.

I just…yes.

Brideshead Revisited

Evelyn Waugh

It’s so…decadent. And sad. (Just like the interwar period in which it’s set, I guess.) At least, the first two sections are sad. The last section is more just sordid. I actually think I would’ve liked the book if not for the last section, but that completely ruined it for me. It’s all so messed up and awful and adulterous.

Sebastian, though. Sebastian grew on me slowly (I was…about as enchanted by him and his teddy bear as Anthony Blanche was), but I really, REALLY loved him by the end. He said some very thought-provoking things. And his ending was pretty much perfect, even if getting there was a thoroughly heart-wrenching affair.

Guns of the Timberlands

Louis L’Amour

In which a bunch of guys who work on a ranch don’t appreciate some city slicker trying to come in and take all their timber. But mostly, if you hurt any of their friends, they will fight you.

This is my sister’s favorite Louis L’Amour novel, so I’ve been meaning to read it for quite a while now, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The Lord of the Rings

J. R. R. Tolkien

I love this book and cannot really talk about it without sort of…gushing. For a long time. Because it’s a long book with lots of stuff in it.

I think it’s really cool, though, how it blends the old, mythic form of storytelling with the modern form of the novel. Tolkien calls it a romance, but it’s a romance written as a novel rather than an epic poem or a fairy-tale. The two things are blended so well, and I actually think that’s what gives The Lord of the Rings so much of its power and timelessness: in old myths you can miss the depth of character achieved by going inside someone’s head and the level of immersion achieved by descriptive prose, and in a novel you can miss the poetry of soaring words to describe heroism – the gravity and full glory of a tale can be lost, I mean, in the somewhat mundane way you must tell it – but The Lord of the Rings blends the two storytelling styles such that you don’t really lose any of the elements. It’s almost the perfect book, you could say, at least for someone who likes the things in stories that I do.

Plus…hobbits, y’all.

The Gift of the Magi

O. Henry

Read this at 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve in order to make my Goodreads challenge (I’m never setting it at 80 ever again), but I’d been wanting to reread it anyway, so that was nice! It’s a perfect little story about “two foolish children in a flat” on Christmas, and between it and The Ransom of Red Chief, I’m excited to read the collection of O. Henry stories I found recently at Half Price Books.


I find I have a great desire to blog but little time. Also WordPress won’t let me insert images all of a sudden, idk what’s going on. I would like to make things more professional-looking roundabout here, but we’ll see if that day comes. For now, tell me how your reading life has been! Any good books, any annoying elements that crop up a lot, any opinions on these books?

  1. So Tye sounds like a wonderful human. Competent and dangerous and knows it and is scared of it??? Yesssss.
    “I think I don’t care if stories are original. I just care if they’re good.” Ahhhhh, so true! There are so many tropes that people smack-talk for being overused, but if you use it REALLY WELL, it hardly matters how often other people have used it.
    I really feel like I need to meet this Murderbot chap….
    “All the, erm, content. Seriously. Could you STOP.” Pretty much me whenever I read YA *screams in frustration*
    I’ve never actually read Gift of the Magi, but I saw a one-act musical version of it a few years ago and…may or may not have cried. It was so sweet.

    1. He really is. I know, I LOVE that character type, and I’m honestly surprised it’s not more common? I can’t think of too many examples, though. I’m not even sure I’ve written a character like that…clearly an oversight i MUST REMEDY.

      This is true. The only trope that’s ALWAYS bad is time travel. #controversialopiniontime

      Well, if you did, then we could freak out over how much it needs to be hugged together and that would be great and I’m just saying. (Murderbot’s books are not entirely content-free, but they could be so much worse so I’m happy. [except for the language. that did not need to be there.])

      *screams with you*

      What, a musical of Gift of the Magi exists?? Just the idea of that makes me happy. It IS so sweet and I do not blame you for almost crying!

  2. Wow, I love what you said about LotR! Tolkien had such a great style which made him able to do beautiful prose while not being too caught up in it that we get nothing else. (I should learn from him. My stories are all dialogue. I’m not kidding, it’s very rare for me to describe something…)

    The Gift of the Magi! One of the perfect Christmas stories. ❤ My favorites by O'Henry are that and The Ransom of Red Chief (of course!). I also really like Two Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen (though it has been years since I read it) and Sound and Fury (so extremely clever!).

    And now I want to read a western. Why thank you. 😉 Happy trails and reading in these next few months!

    Like

    1. Ah, thank you! It’s true, the balance in Tolkien’s writing is excellent! Though maybe we’d all have better prose if we all spent fifteen years writing a single novel? xD (Hahaha you sound just like my sister. Her stories are ALL dialogue. It’s really good dialogue but sometimes description is necessary too. We all have our weaknesses…)

      I will be looking out with anticipation for Two Thanksgiving Day gentlemen and Sound and Fury! (I love clever short stories.)

      You are welcome. 😉 Go read one! Happy trails to you as well! 😀

  3. “Too many guns and robots, not enough hobbits”: but isn’t that just the summary of life though… There never ARE enough hobbits.
    I love what you said about LOTR. I love it to death but I often struggle to articulate my feelings on it and you have done a wonderful job of describing why it’s a masterpiece. It just…is. AND HOBBITS. HOBBITS. HOBBITS. (See how articulate I am?)
    I haven’t read Illuminae but I have ready many books with CONTENT and I WISH there wasn’t SO MUCH of it in so many things because it ruins some stories that would be absolutely perfect otherwise and I just wish people would STOP. GOOD GRIEF, JUST STOP ALREADY. There are so many books that intrigue me and are interesting in a lot of ways but then the content comes in and ruins everything, or doesn’t quite ruin everything but makes it really awkward and I just…this is why I stuck to children’s books for so long, folks. Good stories don’t need all that stuff. SO JUST STOP, OKAY???
    I don’t have strong feelings about it. At all.
    So I’ve never read a Western nor have I ever been inclined to do so but I kind of want to meet Tye now.
    And Murderbot again. Why are there so many things that I kind of want to read but at the same time…not.
    The Witch of Lok Island sounds like a gem. I need to read more old fairy tales and folklore. I really do. Also beautiful illustrations are the best!

    1. It truly is. Never enough hobbits. And ALWAYS too many robots. (can I just talk to an actual human about my bank account, is that too much to ask now)

      I’ve tried to express my LOTR feelings in their entirety on multiple occasions and always end up…gasping like a fish out of water? Because it’s TOO MUCH. and I can’t do words that well. Sometimes I also am reduced to chanting “HOBBITS. HOBBITS. HOBBITS.” with great intensity of feeling. Because the feelings are real and they are LARGE.
      (And…thank you.)

      UGH, I KNOW. There is the rare story where it’s like, maybe I wouldn’t show this to my little sisters till they’re older, but it’s totally necessary to the story (but usually in those cases it’s HANDLED well enough that I wouldn’t be THAT leery about showing it to them, ya know?)…but mostly it just completely ruins things or makes them super awkward, you’re exactly right. It’s infuriating. Because they could have been GOOD STORIES.
      Don’t let words like “infuriating” fool you, I don’t have strong feelings about it either. My feelings are VERY MILD and NEVER cause me to gnash my teeth or pull out my hair.

      Ha. Well, Tye is great but The Daybreakers is most definitely a Western. 😛 I am kind of curious, what do you have against Westerns?

      I KNOW THAT FEELING. Very well, actually. Great characters in genres I hate. I have that experience a lot. It’s kind of sad. All the great characters you’re missing out on. Yet all the misery you’d endure if you actually read the book… (For the record I’m not a sci-fi fan and I’ve still enjoyed the Murderbot books? They are not 100% content-free though.)

      Old fairy tales and folklore are sooo much fun! So much fun. And pretty illustrations make everything better. I used to not appreciate illustrations when I was a small munchkin – I just cared about the story – but now they really enhance things for me?? I guess I was born an adult and am now growing into a child. That’s definitely a logical explanation.

      1. Okay, but I DON’T KNOW what I have against Westerns and I am seriously rethinking my bias because I have never actually read or watched an honest to goodness Western- so I am going to change that and then I can actually form an educated opinion on them instead of being a nitwit. My discovery that graphic novels are not all horrible and uninteresting has made me rethink my random biases against a lot of things. I don’t trust myself anymore. Who am I.
        As someone who has actually read Westerns, would you be so kind as to recommend some good ones to me with which to start? I would really appreciate it!
        Hey, I am growing into a child too!!! I think that’s what growing is all about….right?

      2. That’s very funny! There’s probably a reason you aren’t DRAWN to certain genres but also that probably just means you’re more picky about stories in that genre, not that you can never like them ever. (This is what I decided about myself and sci-fi anyway.)
        And okay, recommendations in kind of an order:
        1. The Home Ranch, by Ralph Moody
        2. The Year of the Black Pony, by Walt Morey
        3. Down the Long Hills, by Louis L’Amour
        4. Shane, by Jack Schaefer
        5. It’s been a longtime since I read it but I remember really loving Zane Grey’s “The Last Trail” and it had kind of a classic-y feel to it imo?
        6. Various other L’Amours, like…The Daybreakers, Ride the River, Reilly’s Luck ???
        (I totally didn’t just recommend all the Westerns I could think of that heavily involved or were from the POV of small children…)
        Westerns often do have a certain style, that I’m not sure if you’d like. I guess it’s because they’re that old kind of pulp fiction. The writing can be so simple that it’s simplistic and you think the characters are flat, but it can also be really beautiful because it’s so simple? And the characters CAN seem really alive, in a they-have-depth-it’s-just-implied sort of way. I don’t know. I have to be in the right mood for them, but I really love the aesthetic. And sometimes the characters. (Seriously I love Ralph so much. From the first one. And Chris and Frank. From the second one.)
        ALSO you should totally watch The Magnificent Seven (THE OLD ONE, I haven’t seen the 2016 remake but I do not trust it) because THAT’S a really good Western movie. Like it’s incredibly well-written and beautiful and has a bald hero and a truly charismatic, entertaining villain and BERNARDO WHOM THE CHILDREN LOVE AND I LOVE HIM TOO.
        Oh, and Alias Smith and Jones! The TV show. You might like that?? It’s my favorite show and should only be watched through the season 2 ep “The Men That Corrupted Hadleyburg” but, except for the first episode which is more silly than the others, it’s the kind of story that is serious in plot but funny in execution? Which is my favorite. It’s really very funny, or at least my sister and I think so. And about two friends/cousins who are former outlaws trying to go straight and never having their path made easy. And even though it’s an old show there’s subtle character development which is really good and they’re just SO WELL WRITTEN.
        Okay. I’ll stop talking now. I just like Westerns a lot (maybe you could tell?) and got excited when you asked for recs. Here they are, do with them what you will. 🙂

        I’m pretty sure that’s right!! 😀

    1. *plants elanor flowers around the puddle*

      LOTR is…the best.
      And I’m glad you enjoyed hearing of my adventures! (more than I enjoyed having them…in some of the more terrifying cases)

      Like

  4. Illuminae. Such a conflicting book. (I was up too late reading it in December, too. Twins! XD) Because yes, it was creepy, and yes, there were (not insignificant) issues, but man it was suspenseful and just, a nice break from life. I mean, except when it’s not. *raises eyebrow*

    I need to read more Georgette Heyer. I’m technically in the middle of Fredericka, but haven’t listened to any of it since…October?

    The thing about Brideshead, though, is that while the ending is sordid, it’s also hopeful. At the end. Because they sort-of-kind-of start making the right decisions. And I like the way that points to God’s mercy. Idk. Could just be me.

    (Do you need to make any excuses for gushing about LOTR? I think not.) AGH I had not though about how the reason we love it is the blending of mythic storytelling with novel, but you’re so right, and oh it’s perfect. Plus, yes, of course, the hobbits. 🙂

    Like

    1. (*twin high five*)
      Very much yes. And I did appreciate the creepy-ness, cuz it was really good storytelling, but…I WILL NEVER NEVER GET THOSE HOURS OF SLEEP BACK.

      My dear. Go get all your sisters RIGHT NOW and START LISTENING TO FREDERICA AGAIN. I mean *cough* you should maybe finish Frederica. It’s really good.
      Georgette Heyer is so clever and hilarious. I find her hit-or-miss, but some of my very favorites of hers (besides Frederica) are: The Unknown Ajax (smugglers and a long-lost heir who’s not as slow-witted as he appears!), The Masqueraders (siblings in disguise as the opposite gender in Georgian London! sword duels and trickery and complicated falling in love!), and Cotillion (fake engagement trope, verrryy fun and VERY sweet). The Talisman Ring and Friday’s Child are also HILARIOUS.
      there, now you’re well stocked with recommendations. I expect you to have read them all by midsummer and write a Good Better Best post. 😛

      This is true. There were some beautiful things about that ending. (I LOVED the part where Lord Marchmain was dying and Charles started praying…) In the end, though, I found Julia flat and Charles despicable and the rest of it was just too miserable for the ending to redeem it for me? I don’t think it’s an inherently terrible book, though; I did see the thread of God’s mercy you’re talking about (best seen, in my mind, in Sebastian – I LOVE that boy. and I love Cordelia. so much.) and it was lovely but…too buried for my personal tastes I guess?
      What I’m saying is…I agree with you. (But I still don’t like the book.) XD

      (:D) HOBBITS. And Tolkien’s genius-ness in general ❤

      1. Your extremely strong recommendation to finish Frederica has been noted. XD (For real, though–I’m going to ask my mom if I can just get a copy and read it on my own, because at this point it’s been almost a year since we started it, and I NEED RESOLUTION.
        Perfect! I shall add all of those to my reading list, and have that GBB up for you asap. (By which I mean…yeah, probably midsummer. XD)

        The part where Charles started praying was one of my very favorites. ❤ I can definitely see why you would find it miserable…I didn't, but, of course, everyone perceives things differently! (Sebastian's ending was so perfect! And Cordelia is the best.) (You are absolutely entitled to dislike the book. XD)

      2. Okay but if you DID do a Georgette Heyer GBB I would be a happy human. 😀 But no pressure! (And I hope you love Frederica!!)

        It was a really awesome moment, honestly. (And I meant miserable in the sense that…reading about people committing adultery and feeling not one jot of remorse over it is miserable to me. Not that the writing was bad. In case that wasn’t clear. :)) (Thank you, thank you. You, on your part, are perfectly welcome to love it. XD It definitely has good points, even to me!)

  6. I love Lord of the Rings SO much 🥺 Fellowship of the Ring was like…the first long book I ever read, and it was hard for baby me to get through but it was so worth it. I have so much nostalgia around that series.

    I remember being deeply frustrated with Gift of the Magi as a teen, but I might have more patience for it now, heh.

    I really need to read more science fiction! I want to read the murderbot stories, especially since that’s a nickname that my sister and I use for a lot of characters we like (oops), but also because they just look really interesting? I like stories centered around learning empathy and compassion even when a character thinks they don’t have the ability to do that? highly specific trope, I know, but stories with that just. they hook me in.

    Like

    1. ❤ ❤
      I'm sure LOTR would be amazing to discover as an adult too, but the nostalgia associated with discovering it in childhood seems…REALLY sad to miss out on. Maybe because it is such a big book. I have such fond memories of spending ALL DAY Christmas Eve and Christmas with my nose buried in The Hobbit (my aunt had brought it to read…she did not get it read). And subsequently reading the whole trilogy one week when I was sick. (I was too sick to get out of bed for a whole week but didn't have a fever, apparently? Cuz my mom wouldn't have let me read if I'd had a fever) I loved reading and all, but those books were MAGICAL. I'd never read anything like them before, you know? (And not that I hadn't read fantasy…just, nothing as large-scale and epic and DEEP as Lord of the Rings. I guess.) (They are such cool books but I will stop gushing now. xD)

      lol well frustration is a completely valid response too. Because…yeah. It is. lol
      I feel like it really just depends how I'm feeling on a certain day whether I decide stories like that are completely beautiful or completely stupid?

      Whaaat you guys call characters "murderbot"? xD xD I LOVE THAT.
      They are really interesting! And centered around murderbot being human even though it's…not. (there's also the trope of the person whose experience of other people is that they're ALL TERRIBLE and then finds out that they're actually not all terrible and is continually astonished at people being kind. or even just decent. that’s one of my favorite highly specific tropes and it’s here too and i am l.i.v.i.n.g. for it.)

  7. Found your site through Kenzie and am enjoying your posts!

    We are currently reading The Lord of the Rings to our four hobbits, and it’s been such fun.

    Gift of the Magi is such a good story. My sister once wrote a song based on that story.

    Apparently, my grandpa used to always have a Louis L’Amore book in his pocket. I, alas, have never read any of these books, but maybe I should? I tend to stick to the speculative fiction circles of literature, but I can sometimes be convinced to branch out.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad to hear it! (Kenzie is the best)

      Aww, I can imagine! I keep trying to get my littlest sister to let me read LOTR to her but for some reason she is not as eager as a person ought to be when LOTR is a factor.

      Now THAT is cool. I want to hear that song.

      😀 That’s such a grandpa thing. I discovered Louis L’Amour in my own grandfather’s basement! They’re very, um…typical? Like for Westerns. They have sparse but poetic writing and twisty yet formulaic plots and…I really like them, but then my childhood was inundated with Westerns and it’s a genre that really speaks to me, so…yeah. XD I would recommend trying The Daybreakers, or Silver Canyon, or The Ferguson Rifle (or Ride the River!), but like…without really knowing if you would like them or not…heh.

  8. I’ve never read westerns but Tye sounds amazing?? ‘Competent and gentle because he’s capable of being dangerous’ is a VERY attractive quality, why are there not more of these.

    And is it really a folk tale if someone doesn’t get turned into a fish, really though…

    Ransom of Red Chief!! It’s the hightlight of my high school English, I’m so glad they gave it to us as a reading. EVERYONE SHOULD READ IT.

    Thank you for this post, Sarah, even if my Goodreads is bracing and side-eyeing you… ;P

    1. I really wish there were more of them (and need to write more of them myself)! Because, especially for such a good character type, they’re oddly rare.

      I think not. Do not bring me your so-called folk-tales, good sir, unless they contain the requisite amount of FISH. And not just any fish. ENCHANTED FISH. Thank you.

      I know, everyone SHOULD. I read it because you mentioned it and…yeah. No regrets. So thank you!!

      You’re very welcome. XD
