So I was at my neighbor’s to talk about dogsitting for them for the next few days and, we were talking about books. How they get uninteresting at some parts, and slow but then they pick back up. And, Debi said “I guess sometimes you have to get through the sluggish parts to get to the great parts.” And I just sat there thinking of how that applies to both life and books, and how a life is like a story. It’s weird that she didn’t even notice what she said, but I found it amazing.
I just finished Jasper Fforde’s first book, The Eyre Affair. For those of you who asked me to share my thoughts once I’d read it, I have to say that I enjoyed Shades of Grey more, mainly because the world he created in that story was more fun and so unlike anything I’d ever read. That being said, I do plan to read the rest of the Thursday Next series, and if you liked Shades of Grey, his other books are worth reading, in my opinion.
