Movies and books

“The Abandonment” by Joshua Ferris in the New Yorker, it’s a good story, I can tell because it’s still bothering me.  The man in his pajamas and the women he walks on. A true story.  Even in his pajamas, he walks on women.

Movies we liked:

Star Trek—was fun but the bad guy was bad for no good reason.

Jason Bourne—exciting, fun but too many car chases for no good reason

I finished The Course of Love by Alain Botton, and found it not my thing.

  1. I didn’t like the therapy notes which reduced the relationship to its moving parts.
  2. As always, men cheat and are taken back quickly by their wife who either doesn’t find out or doesn’t care.
  3. There wasn’t enough muscle for me.

However, I think a lot of people will like this book because it kind of mashes through relationships in a way your average New Yorker reader is going to really like.
