oh no, i haven't read this except for TsWO MONTHS and "why did I keep reading it?" lol. i just started this book last night~! i will give it one honest week and see how it goes! :) i'll then come back and read this :)


It's not nearly as important as Atonement (big fan of that ad well) but I did ultimately like it for the very head smacking you describe. I like it when I know an author has organized a novel so well that something I think I'm reading is really a manipulation of theirs and they were playing me all along. Well....sometimes I love it. Other times, if poorly ha fled, I feel like tracking down certain authors and taking them on a joy ride of my own but I liked the 70s vibe and female perspective here.

The only other book of his I've read besides the two me ruined above is On Chesil Beach and that book made me throw away my fan club t-shirt. I hated it. So..not everything he does is wonderful, I agree.


And that is why I usually don't post comments from my phone. I hope you could interpret all the mistakes!


Oh thank you for posting all the secrets. I got to the part where they were giving her her assignment to spy on Tom and gave it up. But I still wondered if I would find the nugget of interest later on...kind of like in Elegance of the Hedgehog, which I hated for 140 pages and then raced through.

I love Atonement. But it seems to me, it's like my love of Possession or Time Traveler's Wife - some authors can't make lightening strike twice.


I don't know, I've not really loved the last two Kingsolver books, and I don't think I'm losing my grip on modern literature. Yet.


I知 not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I'll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back down the road. All the best
