Day 28: Fly Me to the Moon

28 Aug

Blaugust Entry, Day 28

Update on my reading of Have Space Suit-Will Travel. I’m 108 pages into this 255 page book. It’s a fast read if I put my mind to it. The story took its first serious turn with a cliffhanger of a chapter ending. The whole escape-by-foot-over-treacherous-lunar-terrain sequence reminded me of The Martian a little bit. Man vs. Alien Natural Landscapes. And the thin and large henchmen… They are probably a trope used in other literary works, but to me, it brings back specific memories of the haunting duo in the Otherland series.

This book is not a very descriptive book. As I said before, it is a masterclass in brevity. It fills in details by the context of the action. It infers and makes the reader fill in the blanks. It’s a very smart writing style. Still, the lack of descriptiveness may be why I am comparing this book to those other ones I’ve read in the past. My brain is probably pulling the imagery from the other novels into this one.

I also discovered a few more books that I purchased but haven’t read. Wee. I have a lot of media to consume.

I will hop into ARK in the morning to check up on my dinos. I hope they are still alive. It’s been a while.

Onward, to Day 29!

This month-long blogging challenge is almost over! For more info and more bloggers, check out the official Blaugust page.

A Track-a-day Challenge as an exercise in establishing efficient creative-workflow.

I like how this one turned out, compositionally. I may eventually substitute the lead guitar for other orchestral instruments — when I get there.
