Links & Wishlist: The Architect's Portfolio

Via NPR's Monkey See blog, Galleycat's Worst Negative Book Review Clichés: I was fine until I hit #5, "I just didn't *care* about the characters." I'm pretty sure I say that in every other negative review. Oops!

It's been a long while since I had to do a portfolio, so The Architect's Portfolio: Planning, Design, Production by Andreas Luescher looks like a good resource.

My husband and I went to see Inception this past weekend. I'm not sure I understood it, but I thought it was great. And one of the main characters is an architect! I definitely recommend it.

  1. Regarding your first paragraph: I have occasionally thought that you should unleash a little more in your reviews. Sometimes your reviews seem too polite. Since I don't read the same genres as you do all the time, and I am not, in fact, you, I can't say whether you felt something stronger than "not caring", but sometimes you'll describe characters that sound more than unlikeable and I am interested to know why you don't throw them overboard.
