Unplugging at home with Ben Elton’s “The First Casualty”
I participated in The Dancing Mind Challenge by unplugging with a book by one of my favorite authors, Ben Elton. Though I only made it halfway through Elton’s World War One novel, The First Casualty, I enjoyed the opportunity to concentrate solely on reading for an extended period. I also got to spend some quality time with my greyhound, Lola, who enjoyed the attention! If you’ve never read anything by Ben Elton, you should check out his works. He has an engaging writing style, and writes novels on a wide variety of subjects, always including incisive cultural criticism.
