I love it! I'm pinching that for my personal collection!
Sharlene and I both love murder mysteries - even quite gory ones, but when we both read the cat murder mystery, 'Felidae' by Akif Pirinçci, we both found it very disturbing. Somehow people being murdered is more acceptable to us than cats being murdered.Margi wrote:Odd thing, the human brain. We see such an awful thing in real life and know it is terrible, the depths of depravity, and we are shocked and appalled. But we read about the same kinds of things happening in Ankh Morpork and it's all part of the rich and sordid character of the place. We watch murder programmes on TV all the time, and gun fights and chases on film with people falling down ad infinitum: we even make body counts as the films progress, but it means nothing. Simply entertainment.
I wonder what the psychologists make of it? I'm a Quaker for goodness' sake, and I watch the murder movies. Go figure.
