    Started Gone with the Wind today. High expectations but the first chapter is good. Here we go!

    Well,
    three out of three.

    Enjoyed Esther Freud's " Mr.Mac and Me "...... and..... Ben Elton's " High Society"


    And maybe i shouldn't be so surprised but i can't believe that i'm enjoying Maeve Binchy's " Chestnut Street."


    It really is a learning experience though. Amazing writing.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    I found a " Rushdie " midnight's children and, another Binchy, The RETURN JOURNEY.

    I'm becoming a Binchyite.

    I am a huge Maeve Binchy fan! I have almost all of her books, I read them over and over...there is something soothing about her unpretentious style and the way she entwines love, tragedy and relationships into a beautiful, hopeful picture of life... My favorite is "The Glass Lake"

    magic,
    i'm almost at the end of "Chestnut Street" and the depth of her writing is awesome. When you read it, well, when i read it, it seemed so fragmented and yet it all fits perfectly. Amazing. I shall be looking out for her stuff.

    "The Glass Lake", noted.

    majic,
    i have a list by my side and when i go to the library i look.

    I'm keen to find Albert Camus, desperate almost, but you take from what they have.

    Maybe i should move to a city, bigger libraries, but i'm a country boy. Y'know? Mud 'n' pig-shit.

    I just finished "Gretel and the Dark" by Eliza Granville. It's a story about a young girl in Nazi Germany and a psychiatrist in late 1800s Austria. Their worlds collide in an interesting way through fairy tales and stories. I would reccomend it to anyone.

    I also finished "Relic" by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. It's about a failed expedition in the Amazon jungle and the repercussions of the expedition. It takes place in the New York Museum of Natural History where a monster picked up during that expedition is killing people. It was surprisingly interesting (I saw the movie first) and kept me engaged with just enough science and history.
