Jeanette Winterson is a snob

She wrote isbn 978-0241143957 and her publisher refused to have it entered into a book prize being it was a ‘type cast’ thing or other I read.

I refuse to rate the book, but if she and her publisher feel ‘snobbish’ then take it from me when i say Jeanette Winterson cannot write and essentially does not do wish to do anything with the scope to explore.

Some might say that the public telephone box is a really great plot device but now made unreal and unpractical by the home phone. A mobile phone or ‘handy’ in Ms Winterson’s eyes must be ‘sci-fi’ and horror of all horrors. Let us all hope that no mobile phone or modern ‘thing’ shall be seen in any of her books.

0/5 Bananas – Don’t bother with this snobbish luddite. Plenty of other authors to choose from.

Having fun

Bananas has a new Linux distro, it has a ssh server on it and not much else

So i get a report and i see some fun was had.
