Review The Mallet of Loving Correction

The Mallet of Loving Correction Read & download · 2 Review The Mallet of Loving Correction “In a very real sense Whatever is my life’s work; it’s fifteen years so far of me thinking about what’s going on in my life and in my world” John Scalzi What sort of idiot spends fifteen years writing a blog New York Times Bestselling author John Scalzi is that sort of idiot And in those fifteen years the blog he’s written called Whatever has won awards had its entries republished in newspapers magazines and books and has seen millions of read. I found myself deeply troubled by Scalzi s lack of narrative structure While the date of each chapter was clearly noted the plot was nearly impossible to follow Scalzi genius that he is apparently wrote all the chapters and then rearranged them them into of all things alphabetical order I assume this was an editing error So to give Scalzi a fair review I re read the entire book in chronological order Ugh even of a mess There was bright cheery optimism right at the beginning and it just sunk into despair after two years from which it never really recovered And most of the political characters he wrote about were so laughably incompetent and ideologically corrupt that they were completely unbelievable The only moments I didn t want to gouge my brain out was during his forays into real world commentary which I guess was his attempt to be meta I mean he even starts off with a chapter called 10 Things to Remember About Authors Self involved much Leaving aside my inability to find an overall theme for the novel unless Ha Ha I m Clever is a theme I found his insights to be deeply engaging Bright spots for me were the chapters Straight White Male The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is The Failure Mode of Clever language alert and And Now An Incredibly Long and Detailed Assessment of My Own Last Decade With Footnotes and Annotations Where Desirable and Such Digressions As Will Elucidate the Subject in a Manner Amusing to All Not Sparing Heart Tugging Anecdotes When Appropriate Phrased in the Vernacular of Our Times As a preuel to Old Man s War however this leaves something to be desired Maybe Scalzi should abandon his novel writing and start a blog or whatever Do people still blog I give this one 5 stars because I could get it on Kindle and that makes me feel like I m doing something about the environment without having to go outside or anything

It s been a while since I ve read any of Scalzi s bookswriting It s funny that I was introduced to his work through his blog around a decade back and remember some of the entries in this selection I don t think I was ever devout enough to read all the posts of his blog but lurked enough to enjoy a lot of it I can say the same for several entries in this book Scalzi s style is engaging opinionated sharp and topical It was interesting to walk through the years leading up to the first Obama election and then his incumbency Scalzi writes about McCain Romney Ryan Gingrich and the rest that comprised the ragged mob of the Republicans of the time through the lens of an independent voter who definitely leaned closer to the left on most issues of the time His pieces on writing life in general and the manner in which he deals with and thinks through the process of argumentation or discourse are all a joy in their own ways

The Mallet of Loving Correction Read & download · 2 Review The Mallet of Loving Correction N the Internet and on the planet Earth Nothing is sacred “Taunting the Tauntable” is the motto of Whatever Scalzi takes on politicians bigots vengeful nerds and major corporations with righteous sarcasm and also takes time to muse on love marriage children and faith Everything and anything is up for discussion examination and explanation The Mallet of Loving Correction in short is the whole range of one human’s experience in one easy to carry packag. I first encountered John Scalzi s writing and his blog Whatever when he published a brilliantly scathing incisive laugh until you choke hilarious critiue of the contracts being offered to authors by several Random House imprints I immediately started tracking down Scalzi s science fiction because a I read a lot of science fiction and b I figured that anything else this fellow wrote would probably be worth reading I also started following Whatever as well as Scalzi s Twitter feed And I ve had no regrets So when The Mallet of Loving Correction came out as an affordable ebook I grabbed itFor whatever reasons Scalzi s blog has not been especially political since I began following it unless one characterizes his concern for addressing sexual harassment at science fiction conventions as political So I wasn t uite prepared for how many of the columns in this collection concern electoral politics As it happens while my political views overlap with Scalzi s I disagree with him in a number of areas on points where he makes plain that anyone with my views can t possibly have any functional intellectual capacity That s his privilege but as he points out in some parallel contexts his freedom to say what he wants doesn t preclude me from reacting to it He also makes a factual error or two eg about the political views that members of the Tea Party are and aren t likely to hold A few of these columns also toss out accusations that this or that group of folks are lying to the public and Scalzi doesn t bother to provide corroboration Again he doesn t have to he s writing a blog not taking an exam But in some of those instances if he happened to want to convince readers of my general stripe he d need to do That said the columns in this collection are generally well written sometimes beautifully written and many are thought provoking or moving or both And uite a few are funny though none come close to the column I mentioned at the start of this review The next collection may be better in part because I m betting A Contract From Alibi will be in it But the current collection may well be worth your time and money depending in part on your politics and your blood pressure
