it was amazing
Read from March 23 to June 19, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I like big fat books and I cannot lie...This book and author have been on my list for quite a while. Finding a copy (without resorting to online stores or traveling to a large city) has been a challenge. When my spouse and I headed off to Peace Corps in 2005, our policy became that of letting books and authors "come to us"...the Universe has introduced us to some wonderful books and surprising authors. So while I keep a "to read" list, I am always alert to yard sale finds, books that people recommend and pass on to me, etc. I am eager to bury myself in this tome (I'm already having flashbacks to my "year" of reading Proust!). And I am off.

Cleo I like to discover books, too. Don't like to read predictable books all the time. Always on the alert for a gem that is overlooked.
