I am preparing for vacation which included loading up my Kindle with the next book in the top 100. When we started this crazy journey, I told myself I had to write in the blog before I could start another book. I must admit to our literary friends out there that I do not like to write. Read – you betcha, Write – procastinator! Just ask my boss! So in the true spirit of the blog, the engineer is writing and using the right side of her brain. (well I am cheating a bit!)
I finished Lolita a few weeks back (procrastinator here). Sitting down last night I took some time reflect on the story and what lingered with me from the book. The first word that came to my mind – WOWZA! This man can write. Over and over when asked about the book, all that I could say was, not many people could pull off this story. The subject matter is uncomfortable yet the story was compelling.
Being late and I need to get up to leave tomorrow, I am short cutting my post. Here are my thoughts as they were written on the back of an envelope containing a letter from Heather:
- What an author – not many could pull it off
- Emotional sine wave
- Surprised I liked it!
- Contrite ending *spoiler alert* gives birth to still born daughter and dies? Really?
- Love no matter what
- Questioned my definition of love, what is the normal?
- Love gone wrong
- And English wasn’t his first language!
- GREAT and worthy of the top 5 of the 100!
I am sure deep within me is the great prose to do this book a worthy review. The book was fabulous and I will reccommend it to anyone. Those that won’t read it because you think the subject matter is perverted, porn or too sexual – you are wrong. I was. The book is about the relationship – good or bad, right or wrong – it is a twisted love story. I guarantee it will grab you from the beginning, pull a myriad of emotions out of you and end with the feeling of satisfaction. You know the feeling you have at the end of a good book… doesn’t leave you wanting more or disappointed or mad – it is just The End – ther right end. And my oh my, what an ending!
Grab a book – any book! Read! Promise to be more insightful next time!
Good to be back blogging – Andi
