2012 Books Book 2

(viewed 917 times)
Bookmark and Share
Book 1 was The Summer Without Men by Siri Hustvedt, which after initial reservations I really enjoyed. The initial reservations were related to the fact it is a book about a middle aged lady whose husband has just left her for a younger woman, but indefinitely. He has asked for a "pause". I was not entirely sure what to make of that scenario, but once I got into the book I didn't put it down. Hustvedt is an extremely accomplished writer, clearly very well read and I enjoyed what she had to say.

Yes, this is book 2. The first book isn't photographed, as it's at you house.

That was 2011, mum.

W, really loving this book so far. It's beautifully written and likes its folk tales.
