I forgot to mention that I really would like to read: The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I used to have domestic helper at one time, it would be interesting to know if some of the stuff mention is indeed deja vu. 😉
hey, i loved ‘Roots’? i read it some years ago, and i remember being astounded by it. another book which is something like that is ‘Thornbirds’ by Collen McCullough. and i’m currently reading One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, which promises to be better than either of them. i can’t put it down.
i think you mentioned ‘A Suitable Boy’ in an earlier post…it’s one of the most entertaining books i’ve read. even though it’s humongous, i would’ve been happier if it never ended. i hear he’s writing a sequel…yippee!
It’s interesting that you named these three books in the same sentence – I didn’t like either of them. ‘Thornbirds’ was still okay, but I couldn’t read even a few pages of ‘One hundred years of solitude’. I was wondering if something was wrong with my taste, but now that you mention these three books, I am reassured that I just don’t like these kind of books – alteast I am consistent!
I plan to read ‘A suitable boy’ this year, hopefully as part of a read-along hosted by a friend. Yes, Seth plans to release ‘A suitable girl’ very soon.
This blog acts as a ledger to keep track of books I have read. I do not claim to be a good reviewer or a critic. I do not understand the technicality of writing or reviewing. I jot down my thoughts and opinion about the book just like any other average reader.
