Am on a binge-reading session of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, and while the books have their flaws, I love the snark element in some of the characters – especially Magnus Bane is a fast favorite with me.
Here’s an excerpt from the third book in the series – City of Glass.
After the intensity of The Lives of Others, Mark Watney (the protagonist)’s wisecracks in The Martian come as a breath of fresh air. Even though he is stranded all alone on Mars, he retains his sense of humor and how!
At first, this writing style was a bit unexpected, but now I am just racing through these pages and enjoying this book.
