Oh, how odd - cos you mentioned the story of the real case of a woman released from an institution - I think you found the book on Mum's shelf or something. I can't remember now. Anyway, this book (ha finished it this morning!), was excellent!
Yeah, a narrow escape indeed!
Was it you that gave me "The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox"? It is about a woman that is finally released from a mental institution. I think it may have been you, because we spoke about a similar story a few months back. Anyway, I am half way through the book and thoroughly enjoying it. It is amazing!
Eclectic Book Club Peeps:
All righty, let's have those nominations for our next big read. What's everyone in the mood for?
Post your selections in the "Genres" thread and we'll hash it out. If that takes too much energy, I will put all genres nominated in a hat and pick one at random!
I totally love the Len Deigthon series about Bernard Samson. i think it is toally nine or twelve books...so if you get caugth you got some reading ahead. Start with Berlin Game, Mexico Set, and London Match and you are in for areal treat....I think.
Tom Wolfe is totally different thing. He mixes journalistic writing with fiction in a very special way. Try "A man in full".
You look good in your picture anyway...don't worry about it! :-) Where does one go to view the e-mail IDs on Shelfari?
Anyway, haven't got round to the Hitchhiker's Guide yet, presently reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke. The books you're reading sounds infinitely more appealing...hope you didn't have to work many nights due to the person calling in sick...tonight I'm off to join my husband and then on to a family wedding, all of next week. I'm looking forward to the break...write soon!
Your hair looks great! I see you got your pic put up finally! Next time get one in front of a bookshelf! My pic was taken in front of Lake Michigan, opposite the Milwaukee Art Museum, in Wisconsin, USA. I love the blue water!
I'm back in India, finally! It's been a long journey, about 28 hours hours in all, coupled with a non-stop 15 hours flight from Chicago to New Delhi, which became 17 hours as we were kept waiting for someone to be off-loaded. Well, it's good to be back home! I finished Alan Hollinghurst's A Line of Beauty on the flight. It was shortlisted for the 2004 Booker prize, I think it won. I'm not too impressed with it though...Next I plan to read Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide...can you believe I still haven't read it??!! I'd rather read a good gripping crime or murder mystery though...any suggestions?
I love these notes we're passing, would you like to graduate to e-mail?
