I hope you haven’t forgotten about me.I’ve been really,really busy these days and,even when I had some free time,I was just too tired to write something,hence the lack of reviews for the months of October and onwards.
Well,we are nearing the end,as only 5 school days are left before I’m on holiday.I’ll be heading back to my country and will try my best to catch up with you all and write some reviews.
I’ve also turned my life around lately,and I no longer sleep at 2; I make it a point to go to bed at 11 something and read a book for at least 15 minutes.After indulging in 4 short stories from Gabriel Garcia Marquez,I wanted to read something new and refreshing,so I picked Munro’s ‘Too Much Happiness’ again,and started reading the story I left the book at.This time I see myself appreciating her lyricism and style more; I’ve read 2 stories since I started re-reading the book and the two of them just stunned and moved me.Needless to say reading Munro during the night has become one of my favourite moments of the day.Yesterday itself,although I had a crucial test on the following morning,I couldn’t refrainfrom finishing ‘Face’,a very touching and – as with anything from Munro – very compelling story.I’m sure that 100 years after her death,people will speak of her in the same we’re speaking about Chekov now.
I’m also writing a review for ‘Waiting for Godot’,but I’m taking all my time and rephrasing things here and there,because I want the review to be good; I want it to convey the genius of Beckett and encourage people to give his magnificent play a chance.
Well,that’s all! I’ll end this post with two pictures of all the books I bought during my 3 months in England.If you wish to know why I bought any of them,feel free to comment. 🙂
