Wow, I am starting my 12th year of blogging!

The Zwinger contains multiple collections: we visited all of them, but we were more interested in the Mathematical and Physical Collection (which I blogged about earlier). However, since the ticket we had allowed entry to the other collections, we also checked them out. This entry is about the Porcelain Collection, which would probably make any grandmother's memories you have active.

Dresden is full of royal palaces and villas. The Zwinger is one of them, set right in the middle of the Old Town. This was the first thing we visited, and as geeks, we zoomed in to the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon, or the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments. Boy, this was a wonderful place to be!

Anyway, this book is actually not a novel, but a collection of short stories about multiple characters that seem to share the same universe. They all revolve around Los Angeles, they have connections with other characters in Ellis's other novels, and they are all shallow beings lacking in depth and character. This is the typical Ellis formula, which has been used in his other novels he has written since then.
