I finished reading “Lord of the Flies” by William Golding. I know that last week I said I would post a review today, but the truth is I feel completely unable to. The book turned out to be something totally different from what I initially thought it was, and once I saw this I realized the genius of it. I’d rather not write a review at all than write one that is less than the book deserves, so I’ll save it for some other time, when I’m not as tired.
Anyway, I also read “As Extraordinárias Aventuras de Dog Mendonça e Pizzaboy II – Apocalipse” by Filipe Melo and Juan Cavia (pictured open in the image above – check out those colours!). It’s the second book in a Portuguese comic series, one of the few that actually achieved commercial success in Portugal (the market is small and struggling here, but the fans are passionate). I liked it, but didn’t love it. Still, I feel happy that books like these are getting published. I’ll be looking forward to the next one.
I started reading “Designing for the Social Web” by Joshua Porter. I’m still at the introduction, but I have high hopes for this one. Lately it seems that all the books about design or social media that I pick up end up being disappointments, so let’s hope this one is the exception.
