<-- Northern Lights is maybe my favourite I have read thus far, although The Things They Carried is also just an unforgettable piece of essential reading!
As my late-night supper cooks itself in a nearby oven, filling my apartment with the lovely smells of roast chicken -- as I bustle about doing my evening chores -- as I lament that my workaday world absorbs far too much of my energy and TIME -- I just wanted to splash past The Puddle long enough to tell y'all that if you have not read Tim O'Brien yet -- make time for him, some…… time…. soon!
This was a whopper of a good read. An adventure story that is so much more than that! Written in a Hemingwayesque mix of nuance and simplicity, not to mention depth!
Every page filled with "true sentences"!
Now, if you'll excuse me -- it's time to check my Lottery tickets for tonight's 6/49 draw.
I have two tickets, and the prize tonight is an estimated 25,000,000 clams!
If I win -- trust me -- my GOD am I ever going to be doing a lot of blogging!
You'll be positively sick of how much blogging and wildly-verbose book-reviewing you'll see on Bookpuddle!
