Fiction Fix: March

Life can be a piece of crap sometimes. Thank god we have fictional universes to divert our attention.  Sometimes it is the little things.  Here are three of my little highlights this month.

One: Dolores in Westworld saying, “I imagined a world where I didn’t have to be the damsel.” (There are so many reasons to love Westworld. I can’t count the ways)

Two: When Madolyn says to Costigan, “I have to say your vulnerability is really freaking me out right now.”  The chemistry in this scene is sizzling with sex. Or perhaps that is just the DiCaprio factor.

Three: Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke was a big highlight for me in March and there are many joyous fiction moments. The one I nominate for this list is the idea of book murder. Clegg eats a book and is hanged for book murder. I don’t believe in death penalties but I think book murder should be a thing.

What fictional moment resonated with you recently?

  1. Sorry to hear that life has been a piece of crap (assuming that you’re talking about your own life?) I’m also a huge Westworld fan.
    Fictional moments that resonated with me recently:
    1. The moment when something actually happened on p. 128 of Ready Player One. Before then it was solid info dump. I only stuck with it because I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie. It was such a relief to reach some actual plot I felt like cheering!
    2. The moment in Kaaron Warren’s novel Slights when I thought the protagonist had been so scathingly witty that everyone would finally abandon her, except they didn’t, because people can’t help themselves when it comes to redeeming a strayed soul!

  2. Life has its ups and downs! I saw Ready Player One yesterday. There was some info dumping but as a newbie to the story, it probably helped to orientate me. My favourite moment was seeing the Iron Giant come to life. I love that movie.

    1. I hope to see the movie this week. I still have around 30% of the book to go!
