G Funny - I liked the end much less than the beginning/middle!

message 2: by Katie (new)

Katie I can see that. I agree that the end was somewhat obvious but there was something about the reoccuring motif of Shiva and Marion touching their heads together that I really liked.

Now my question to you: how do you have time to read as a first-year law student??? I'm very impressed.

message 3: by G (new)

G There's not very much time! I haven't been reading very much unfortunately (I read Cutting for Stone over the summer on LuAnn's recommendation). I read a little bit when I can during the day. I read before I go to bed. And then I read the New Yorker while brushing my teeth.

Susan I've read about 100 pages of this clever book, but sometimes I resent that cleverness. Marion is a hugely didactic, judgmental, and intrusive narrator.

Melinda I also loved the first 100 pages then hated the rest. Finally gavbe up at the 300 page mark...and I usually don't not finish books.

Jrr The plot is preposterous to the point of being silly. And the historical discussion of Ethiopia, according to the author, was "fictionalized" in order to fit his story line. A waste.

message 7: by Margo (new)

Margo Iserson should have stuck it out...one of the best books I've read. Really touching, but each to his/her own.

Maria ( ZITA )  Silva I am still reading it, still waiting for the great part of the book.... Not really liken it... but want to finish it.
