First Book of 2010

Filed under: Literary Tidbits — Esther @ 3:51 pm

Yesterday I finished reading my first book of 2010.  It was “Her Fearful Symmetry” by Audrey Niffenegger.  I had been anxious to read this new novel from the author of “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, because that one ranks right up there among my favorite books of all time.  So, the other day when I walked into the library and “Her Fearful Symmetry” was just sitting there on the shelf right in front of my eyes, how could I resist but to take it home and dive right in?  Never mind that I still had not finished “Pride and Prejudice”, this month’s book club selection.  As I may have previously mentioned, that novel just wasn’t sucking me in.  Alright then, I easily checked out “Her Fearful Symmetry” (this whole newfangled checkout system that the library has makes it so easy for you), along with a few other interesting looking volumes.  It took me only a few days to finish the book.  I liked it!  Very much!  Not as much as “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, but very much.  This book is a ghost story.  Set in London, the author manages to create some very complex characters, while also providing somewhat of a tour of that romantic sounding city.  I kept turning the pages because I couldn’t wait to see what happened next!  Now, that novel is done, and I have no excuse but to turn to “Pride and Prejudice”.  At least I can keep the London thing going for a while………..
