Computer games; Forster

Listening to:

Brahms, double concerto for violin and cello in A minor, op. 102.

Still reading:

E. M. Forster, The longest journey. I didn’t get a whole lot further this week. Rickie Elliot is rather less sympathetic now, and it s starting to become clear that this novel could well be one where the main characters are all more or less irritating. I’m still enjoying it though. The writing is good, and the characters are interesting, even if they do deserve a come-uppance.

I didn’t write yesterday because I was away in London, on a brief Easter holiday. Although we did venture out into the big smoke on Saturday, much of the rest of the time was spent playing computer games. I played two games new to me, King of Dragon Pass and Pharaoh. Both are strategy/simulation games, just like Railroad Tycoon II, which I’ve already described briefly before.

Today is ANZAC Day.
