I don't know why I haven't written in nearly a week. Probably just laziness. I've been reading Byatt's Possession and only have about 190 pages left. It's longer than I thought it was, but it's good. I'm not totally impressed with the language, but the story's fairly entertaining.

I've also been finishing The Island of Dr. Moreau. I'm still surprised how much I've enjoyed the book. I didn't finish my extra credit book, The Time Machine, but I Wells has been a more than pleasant surprise.

I didn't read the extra credit Wells either. Like you, I was so surprised at how much I liked Island of Dr. Moreau. I've been thinking about it for several days now.

No extra credit for me either. I liked the idea of reading another book, but no time. Looking forward to everyone's posts!

This month has been such an eye opener. Not only did I have no understanding of Wells's craft and ability, but I didn't know how well respected he was as a writer. I guess science fiction has always been such a bore to me, that I thought everyone felt the same.
