Book Pictures

10 May

Because it’s easy and I had a request for at least one picture, here are some pictures of the hardback version of The Life and Times of a Winning Pony by Chengar Qordath.

First off, by a standard paperback book for size comparison. It’s almost twice the size in every dimension.

 

Now for shots of the cover.

Now, for the actually requested picture. Pinkie pie bouncing over the page asking if Rainbow Dash can see her:

    The Risen Empire was such a massive disappointment to me. Okay, that’s not really true; it was more that it seemed like it was setting up something so interesting, and then The Killing of Worlds just completely wasted all of promise of interstellar immortality politics and instead decided to spend all its time making a sprawling story as claustrophobic as possible. And meanwhile, you’re realizing that the author has no intention of actually DOING anything with any of the historical allusions or clever futuretech that were set up in the first book. Ugh.

    Your new book looks nice, though!

      That’s too bad. I really like Westerfield’s work and that’s one I hven’t read yet.

      Really? I mean, yeah it sucked that the sequel didn’t go anywhere, but I still enjoyed both books quite a lot. First one a bit more, to be honest, but there were good points in the second one.

        I mean, I wouldn’t call them bad by any stretch. They just raised my expectations so high with the premise and the direction the story looked like it was going to go, and then I felt like it failed to deliver on those promises. Like I said, “disappointment.”

        My sister had talked up the books to me before I read them, too, and it’s entirely possible she oversold it to me.

        Understandable. I came across the first book at random, so I went in with no expectations whatsoever. I do agree that the second one was a disappointment. I mean, I remember enjoying it, but all the actual scenes I remember liking were from the first one if my flimsy memory is to be believed.

        So, would the first book be enjoyable if I pretend the second one doesn’t exist? In other words, is the first book a complete story?

        Not exactly? I mean, I enjoyed the first book quite a bit and only found out about the sequel say two years later? It has a perfectly good character-center story sort of embedded in it that is more or less self-contained, but the actual events of the narrative end on something of a cliffhanger and if you want to know how the whole situation wraps up you’ll need to move to the second book.

        I suspect if you go into the second book with low expectations it will be fine.
