Okay, I'm hearing ani-mah-Jus. So that's not a hard G, but a soft?
I've always heard it in my head as just a prefix "ani-" added to the word "magus", but given that it's a word Rowling invented, I guess there's no right or wrong answer here.

Yes, that's a soft G. A hard G is as in goose.

There's a thread in the Audiobooks forum for mispronunciations that make you nuts.

Huh.

Well, I am already nuts... LOL, and the discussion in there is lively. Hah, I am put in mind of an old SNL skit where they made fun of newscasters who put effort into pronouncing foreign words and place-names correctly. It's a no-win situation.

Most enjoyable. I just haven't much time to read recently. One of the earlier published books. I especially like the afterword with notes on what's fiction and what's historical.

next up: The Ruin of Angels by Max Gladstone

Finished Cinderella Can't Be A Guy by Jackson Terrance (Short Story)

It was a great YA Transgender read. The main problem I had with it was the pacing in the book, he could have fleshed out the story a lot more it sometimes felt like a short abridged version of a longer story, or more like a skeleton of a book.

Currently I'm almost half-way thru Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours. So far it's an OK read, still holding out on full judgment

I have read somewhere that the silent-T version is Rowling's intended pronunciation.

Re-reading "Invisible Man," after a 40-year gap.

It's just as I remember it, so beautifully written and so incredibly moving.

After that, I plan to read "Three Days Before The Shooting" which, by the way, can be purchased for the incredible price of only $2.99 at Amazon.

I’m reading Elegy for April by Benjamin Black (aka John Banville). It’s quite good so far. I expect it is a murder mystery but no one has died yet.

I've been reading Bridge of Bones, second in the Jason Crane series by Richard Gleaves. Lots of spooky action! I'm glad I already have the third book.

Be interested to know what you think. I've read #4, The Girl in the Spider's Web, and ATM have decided not to bother with any more.

Meanwhile, I've been binge reading the Ava Lee series from Ian Hamilton. Fun books, with an ethnically Chinese Canadian, lesbian, forensic accountant, martial arts proficient, main character and a wide range geographical venues, though focused around Hong Kong. Wonderful fun!
Finished the full cycle of these, ending with The Courtier of Milan , the 9th (or 10th, depending on how you count). That's all until the new year, I'm afraid. But what FUN.

Now, onto something a bit different, the fourth book in the Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series, A Conspiracy of Kings. Good, but not up to Ava Lee.

Finished listening to The Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. Very enjoyable. Now listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Meanwhile, I have begun reading Beyond the Body Farm: A Legendary Bone Detective Explores Murders, Mysteries, and the Revolution in Forensic Science by Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson.
