Where do you live that you get such a steady supply of new books, Goof? Are there no other little free libraries for folks to drop books into?

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, 1938

A truly amazing piece of literary history. I read this book like a drug that I was dependent on, getting agitated and anxious and finicky when it was not in my hands. Indeed one of the least put downable books I've read, blazing though the last third or so last night with no hope to withdraw from the situation.

The prose was immediately arresting but also never really leaving one in any sort of daze, quite readable. Character development is in full blast as a shy and young freshly married wife attempts to overcome the trace of their manor's late mistress. The tense and slightly neurotic passages/monologues are brilliant and unnerving in relation to sanity. Builds constantly upon a growing surplus of maddening tension and anxiety and another feeling I suppose you could call love.

Masterpiece.

5/5

could a mod merge my library thread https://www.musicbanter.com/media/93...e-library.html with this one and take the 2018 out of the journal title

seems like that should've been a logical course of action in the first place. I also still have books from before that I didn't say anything about.

Sunset Limited by James Lee Burke, 1998

Pretty gritty crime novel that had amazingly original atmosphere that might remind one of a darkish shade of purple. A lot of people get busted up in a mess of murder and extortion and prejudice where justice is backwards.

I think it had a lot of characters and minor situations that it got somewhat more difficult to follow but nothing must have left my mind as I was reminded of the whole affair in better clarity by the time we screech to the end.

4.5/5

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, 2008

After finishing this publication I felt a touch conflicted. The two narrators go about their lives with supremely haughty and patronizing observations of the world around them and make me feel like I wouldn't want to affiliate with these jerks and that probably just goes to prove them right.

Excessive words and cliches but also humorous in a unique and some other things. I just didn't connect with a lot of what was said.

3.5/5
