This book is SO WEIRD! It’s almost too weird for me, and I like weird. It starts out so very macabre. (Fancy word alert)
My favorite line so far: “Sometimes I feel like a bone being worried at by a dog.”
There are lots of lines like that in the book so far. I find myself thinking about something I read a page or two back and going back to read it over again. Isn’t it weird that you can be thinking of other things while reading? Seems like that would be impossible, but I guess it’s not. Don’t you sort of see a movie playing in your head as you’re reading a book? I do.
Anyway, I don’t have an opinion on this book yet, other than it's weird. I switch back and forth from wanting to throw it across the room and forget it and wanting to keep reading. I’ll keep you informed as I get into it a little further.
I watched the movie Twilight yesterday. The book is SO MUCH better than the movie! Isn’t that always the way? If I had seen the movie, I would have no interest in reading any of the series, so I’m glad I didn’t see it beforehand. The movie seemed to be geared much more towards teenagers.
When my sister was over here on Mother’s Day, I mentioned that I was reading the series. She said, “Well, the book must be a lot better than the movie!” She had watched it while on an overseas flight and her words were, “It was so dumb!” She said she was surprised I liked them so much and I asked her why. She said, “Because I don’t think you’re that stupid!” Ha-ha-ha. Now I know what she was talking about.
I really have to get back to work now. I'm avoiding it because I'm transcribing a Japanese lady with a heavy accent. Ugh. It's annoying and difficult. Plus, she's talking about international tax regulations, so it's boring to begin with. Envy me.
