Watched up Sàr Sgeòil 3: The Silver Darlings. Not sure I’d like to read it, not sure I wouldn’t. Perhaps one day I’ll decide to find out whether it’s more about fishermen or about straight relationships, but not in the foreseeable future. The new episode 4 is about The Thirty-Nine Steps: for a third time they’ve picked something I’d read, which is strangely reassuring. Surprising pick though, like its having been published in Penguin Classics, it seemed so mediocre to me… Maybe they’ll tell me what made it so famous.
[Next day: They did – apparently it was a predecessor of all the far-fetched thrillers of the James Bond type.]
