I'm not passing judgment. That's the actual title of this book. Classics Mutilated edited by Jeff Conner. It's a collection of short stories, a "Genre-Blending Monster Mash up." I loved it! Well, I loved 11/13 of it. There were only two stories I didn't finish. One was a spoof on Twilight. Although I appreciated the remake concept of Loki (yes, as in Thor's bad bro Loki) being the much more substantial main character replacing Bella, I just couldn't stomach anything related to Twilight. (Sorry, I know I just insulted half of you out there.) The other short story I couldn't finish was one I thought I would actually enjoy but I just couldn't get into it. It created a reality that connected Edgar Allen Poe and Jim Morrison of The Doors. I love Poe and thought I was a decent fan of Morrison but obviously not as dedicated a fan as need be to understand the story. LOTS of references to Morrison songs, philosophy, stage performances... I'm just not cool enough (or high enough) to get it. But other than that, I really really enjoyed the book. Lots of fun!!!
Read any good books lately?
I read more than just classic novels. This is where I post about recent books I have read. Have you read the same book? Got a different opinion? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it.
