I re-read a bit of The Last Wild because I want to review it. It's not as boring as I remembered.
I tried that one. I suspect you'll find it even more annoying than I did - I can't quite believe Gooley teaches this for a living, because he does seem terribly pleased with himself for knowing such gems as "Most plants grow towards sunlight"Started reading a book I got for Christmas called How To Read Nature by Tristan Gooley. Near as I can tell, it's supposed to be a handbook on how to become Aragorn, which I'm on board with. Unfortunately, the first couple chapters appear to be mostly waxing philosophic on vague, tangentially related concepts, all in the name of "laying the groundwork" or something. If nothing else, it has given me the line, "That is not a pretty flower you are looking at; it's a sex machine, whoring itself to the bees. How can something so pretty be so wanton!"
So it's got that going for it.
Woo, another Abnett fan! He's an absolutely lovely bloke:Henry VIII And The Men Who Made Him, Tracey Borman, Titanicus, Dan Abnett, Honour Guard, Dan Abnett
Still in print, eh? I bought that for a friend of mine many years ago.Very recently started Persian Fire by Tom Holland (not that one), on the rise of the Persian Empire.
