Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.



Captain America: The First Avenger [Movie Novelization] - Junior Novel - Walt Disney Company

I knew this was just a "junior novel", but still, I'd hoped for more. It's very bare bones, racing through the action and not bothering with things like characterisation or transitions. I'm not sure i makes sense if you haven't seen the movie, actually - it sure doesn't make you care about anyone except maybe (maybe!) Steve. It also constantly switches POVs, which I found rather irritating.


The only thing of interest is that in the script on which the novelisation is based Bucky apparently wasn't supposed to die. Steve simply finds him in a cage, no sign of experimentations, and he survives the train (which is much more explicitly set up as a trap). So there's that, I guess.
