Yeah, I can see that - and she was so whiny - oh, no, I've got the great guy who means the world to me, and now I have to marry him. How horrible. Oh - and in the meantime I am travelling the world and my book is a suprize best seller. Woe is me. Yeah, right!
I just couldn't get into it. I've gotten half way through but still not invested in the characters. I have trouble even picking it up now. Goes between his parent's story [frican immigrants-father beats mother-mother hides in her mind (how does he know what she thinks??)] and his current life as a twenty/thirty something man who can't express emotion. He's trying to discover himself by investigating his parents...
Not bad writing but I think I was trying to tackle too many books during my little break. I didn't have a lot of patience for those that didn't immediately captivate me. Just started Cleopatra yesterday-good but should have picked it up first. It'll be tough to continue reading now with my school texts as it requires some concentration. Hope that helps!
Hi. I just published my own book so check it out at
I know, I'm having the same problem. I am sure there are many books on my list that I haven't actually read but thought about reading, or heard about. I'm also actually confused as to whether or not I read the book or saw the movie. I didn't realize how many movies come from books.
I know I've read lots in my day but I decided to only post what I've read recently (say the last two years) and can vividly remember/discuss. The classics I read in the past can only count if I read them again. That's my own personal rule of thumb. I read Moby Dick many times and disliked it each time. I wonder if I'd like it now?
Amelia read the first Fablehaven book and LOVED it. We have requested the second from the library. John got three today: The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, Cowboy and Octopus and Timothy and the Strong Pajamas. Great recommendations.
'Tis quite cool. I am currently in Copenhagen with my family, so I don't yet have the time to become THAT addicted, but I'm sure I will soon. Thanks for sendng me the link!
I still need to send you another e-mail, unless I would start talking to you on here. But this is neither Facebook nor an e-mail service, so I'll just have to use one of those options.
Et merci et bonne année !
