Good evening everyone! Guess what time it is! It’s time to read a book! I know what you are thinking – stop groaning! A Tattered Page (ATP) is my favorite event and it is back for round four! ATP is a quarterly Second Life Event based on a different book each round. A real book…not a movie! The book is used for inspiration, everyone involved has to read the story and interpret it with their designs/blog posts.The exclusive items designed by the participating designers will be available at their stores and the ATP Library until July 31.
This round is centered around Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The book is a satire of the birth of the son of Satan and the end of the world. It follows the two awkward heroes; Aziraphale (a angel) and Crowley (a demon) as they attempt to stop the eradication of the human race because they have grown rather fond of living among them. I will have to admit the book is somewhat hard to follow occasionally and I did have to go back and re-read some sections several times to clear up my confusion as it moves very fast. But I found the book to be a real delight to read. I loved the satirical twist to the tale and how well the characters all tied in together. So much so, my family hates the book because I wouldn’t shut up telling them what was happening or reading snippets to them over dinner.
