it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, favo-u-rites
Read from May 17 to 20, 2010

It's funny how just straightening up your bookshelves can lead to opening a book just to read the first couple lines...next thing you know you've read half of it.


I never expected this to be so good. Really, it was just beautiful. Just thinking about Leo Gursky's character gives me a lump in my throat. Even typing his name, I'm blinking back tears.

I loved this book.

message 10: by Rauf (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rauf Halfway thru? Shiny. I hope you like this one.

JSou It's very shiny so far. : )

Rauf I been looking for Streets of Crocodile after I finished reading this book. Still no luck till today.

Rauf Yaaaaay! 5 starz.
Leo was arguably the best character in the book.

JSou I loved Leo. Love him. And I really want to read The Street of Crocodiles now.

Rauf did you already find it?
it's available in gutenberg.org--but it's in Polish

JSou I found it at betterworldbooks.com, but I haven't ordered it yet. They ship internationally, too!

Rauf Might cost 10 bucks or more. Rauf is saving money to watch Belle & Sebastian.
