Odd. Tried posting something yesterday, but it doesn’t seem to have worked.
(Spoiler in the extended entry)
Ever seen the Nokia ad with the girl watching a horror movie on her mobile on the bus? I had a bit of a moment like that this morning on the tram. I’m getting close to the end of my reread of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin series, with only a few pages left of The Hundred Days and at the line “(…) caused the twenty-four pound ball to strike the second gun of the Surprise’s starboard broadside, killing Bonden, it’s captain (…)” I very, very nearly screamed. I had completely forgotten this. You can’t KILL Bonden, for all love! Which, it is not fair! And POB being dead (RIP), I can’t write him an angry letter, either, to vent my frustration.
Sorry about the spoiler. I’m not sure I can write this blog without them. I might need to put a warning in the title/description – Spoilers galore! or similar.
