It's a conspiracy!

I don't know how he did it. By all rights he should be rotting in some dead-end job as a mechanic's helper, rather than this playboy millionaire who always has the Next Big Idea. Where does he get these plans for all of this stuff? Is he really such a creative genius? That can't be true.

So, I finished Driven around 1834, and was surprised by three things. One, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Two, there were a couple of semi-graphic sex scenes. Three, that the final chapter existed at all. I really do mean that last one. I was reading, and the story reached a nice ambiguous conclusion that I was impressed about. There was even a blank page to support this notion. Unfortunately a turn of the page proved me incorrect, and I had to read through some 'happily ever after' wrap-up.

Grah. I like it when the story doesn't have a clear ending! That's what makes The Giver one of my all-time favourites. There's just something about being given a large set of data and having the opportunity to draw your own conclusion that I cannot help but enjoy. Hrm... I think I might understand one aspect of why people write fanfic, now.

So, I tend to spell in the manner of British English. While not technically accepted, this means that I tend to eschew the use of the letter 'Z'. Mere moments ago, I realised that I have taken this just a bit too far, because I just spelt the number '0' with an 'S'.
