  • Novel's two storylines never seem to succeed

    Anyone looking for reading material guaranteed to put them to sleep at night should pick up “My God, What Have We Done?” by Susan V. Weiss (Fomite Press, 2011).
    The novel is an awkward blend of two storylines, one set in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project and the other following the married life of a couple identified simply as Pauline and Clifford.
    Pauline — who narrates the Pauline/Clifford storyline — is one of the most monotonous characters ever written. Pauline vacillates about her marriage from the time of her engagement through the end of the novel, and seems incapable of taking any action that would make her life more fulfilling.

  • 'The Help' reigns again over storm-soaked weekend 


    LOS ANGELES — “The Help” remained Hollywood’s top draw with $14.3 million on a slow late-summer weekend whose business was even more sluggish as many East Coast theaters closed to ride out the storm there.
    Irene was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm Sunday, but the weekend already was a lost cause for many theaters in its path. Studio executives estimate that about 1,000 theaters shut down for at least part of the weekend and that business may have been off 15 to 20 percent because of the storm.
