November Reads

You know the drill. Here's what I read in November:

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - James Joyce
A read a lot of Joyce this month and I enjoyed it all. A Portrait of the Artist was a particularly wonderful discovery and although it took me quite a long time to read, I enjoyed every moment. Joyce's prose is truly unique and crucial to the study of modernist literature. 4/5

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J. K. Rowling
I've finally started on an over-due reread of the Harry Potter series! And most excitingly, this time I'm partaking with the help of my library's stock of the Stephen Fry audiobooks. His narration is near on perfect and my enjoyment led to a slight binge on Stephen Fry for the rest of the month. 5/5 of course.

Moab is My Washpot - Stephen Fry
And so the binge begins... Moab is My Washpot is the first in Fry's series of memoirs and it follows his early childhood years in private school, up until his eighteenth birthday. Unsurprisingly, this was brimming with Fry's well-known intelligence, wit, and penchant for interesting facts. 5/5
