Since I seem to be incapable of posting anything other than silly photos here in the Bubble, I thought I’d experiment with a new format for telling you about the pile of contemporary popular fiction I’ve I’ve plowed through this summer. Here are my lazy, one-word assessments …
Life of Pi: “Disturbing”
The Help: “Meh”
(Well, the ant part in the middle, anyway. The people parts before and after? “Plodding”)
The Lacuna: “Frieda”
The Secret Life of Bees (audiobook): “Hamlet?”
Much more I’d like to share, but we live in a fast-paced world, you know, so one word should be sufficient.
Got any concise evaluations of your own recent reading you want to share? I’m going to be about ready to start re-reading Faulkner or Woolf after all these pageturners.
