I'm really enjoying American Lion -- Jackson was quite an interesting individual. I didn't really like the Blind Assassin all that much. It was pretty hard for me to get through the book actually. I think Atwood is great, but this one just didn't do it for me. We do have electricity -- yeah! It was pretty rough (and cold) for a while there :) And I'll give Daddy-O the message about getting and not going.
I buy a lot of books over the internet, and so I keep a wish-list of books in my diary so that when I make an order I can make it a big one. I've added the books to my wish-list, and so will hopefully buy them soon. I've been so busy i barely have had tima to read lately!
Thank you so much! I love historical mysteries and am always looking for new authors. I have not seen these books before, and am not sure whether they are available in Australia (which is where I live). I'll add them to by list of 'want to read' and snaffle them if I see them.
all my best
Thanks for explaining the green book marks to me -- I hadn't quite figured that one out yet.
I have a new Shelfari friend named Kelley. It looks like she has pretty good taste in books.
It sure was nice to see you for a moment yesterday. I'm sorry that I wasn't home so that could have enjoyed your entire visit!
How strange. I just finished reading the book and I don't remember either of those parts.
I did like how she described the mountains in womanly terms. I found it to be a delightful book, though I did find myself irritated by her view of the local indians.
It is a good book. I like the author's writing style. Part of the story involves a child rape and I had (and sometimes still have) trouble shaking the sadness, disgust (whole host of other emotions) I felt when reading that part. It stops me from reading his other books.
If you get emotionally involved stories, beware.
