Strip by: Ian Boreham

{The book "The Life of Pi".}

caption: After years of reading mathematics papers, I'm finding it hard to start reading fiction again. Perhaps I'm taking the titles too literally.

caption: Transcendent writing, I'm sure. but it looks like it will go on forever.

{The book "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".}

caption: Blood doesn't usually bother me, but this guy's clearly going to need a major transfusion.

{The book "The Lost Symbol", by Dan Brown.}

caption: I already have this recurring exam nightmare where some symbol goes missing during a proof. No thanks.

caption: Besides, this Langdon dude is a "professor of symbology". I'd prefer to read about something I don't know, like, say, semiotics.

script:
{The book "The Power of One" by Bryce Courtenay.}

caption: I'm guessing this one's figurative. Presumably the main character never changes, no matter what.

caption: I might watch a DVD instead. I haven't seen "The Matrix: Revolutions" yet. Is it a typo for "rotations"?

The author writes:

I don’t really want to read through hundreds of pages to find out whether the Bourne identity is for addition or multiplication. Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis sounds too negative for my liking. However, I am a little curious to know under what lighting conditions the Fifty Shades of Grey could be distinguished.

I watched a Disney movie the other day, and they played that Disney anthem "When you wish upon A*". Frankly, I wouldn't wish lattice theory on anybody.
