Original review:
The psychology is outdated -- but the writing! The writing! So lovely. So moving. I'm in love with this book.

Quotes Sarah Liked

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or of the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night

Emilie that's cool, thanks! i think the shots of her standing between the couple (i think it's her father and his new wife) are interesting, it plays a little like i pictured rosemary.

Sarah I kinda thought her features would be more rounded.

You're absolutely right about this book, by the way. I just have such a sentimental attachment to it...

Emilie thanks, sarah. that's part of why i was hesitant to say how i saw it.
(sorry, i kind of disappeared, i had a migraine.)

Sarah Oh, never be hesitant! I like your honesty. It's brave.

I'm sorry you've had a migraine. I get them too. :(

Emilie thank you! *smiles*

i'm sad that you get them too.

Sarah ...and I just noticed that the placement of that frowny face makes it look I'm being myself. =b

Emilie oh, i read it as you saying that you understood how painful they are.

i think it's okay to be sympathetic to yourself, too, though, and how appropriate to be sympathetic to migraine (sympathetic nervous system). *smiles*
