I think by now, everyone on my flist but me have seen Serenity. To you all guys, I HATE YOU :p

I finished Anansi Boys this morning, which was very fun. Light hearted and pleasant to read. I always love how much of a storyteller Neil Gaiman is.

I also finished Last light of the sun the other day. Guy Gavriel Kay was once my favourite fantasy writer. I'm not sure if he's just not as good as he used to be, or if it's me who lost taste for the style and gimmickes he (over)uses. I'm a bit afraid of rereading books by him to check which it is. It wasn't a bad book by any mean, but it was far from the enchantment it used to be. No character grasped me emotionnaly. I think this is partly because he badly sold the book. It was supposed to be about norsemen damnit. That's not what I read.

I think it's not impossible either that I'm getting tired of fantasy. I mean, since I've swtiched to mostly reading in english, I've started reading much more fantasy than sci-fi. I guess there's a point where it gets wearisome.
