In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien
"This was a BOTM read for me. I finished it. I found no redeeming qualities in either of the main characters. To me they were flat and undimensionalble. The ending was no ending. It was a bit tedious to read the writing, which went backwards and fo..." Read more of this review »
In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien
" I preface this review by acknowledging that this star rating is probably unfair- based on my lack of homework pre-read. I read this solely based on another author recommend and the fact that Tim O'Brien was well-esteemed. I read two blurbs on the..." Read more of this review »
In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien
"First of all, this book made me realize how much I generally like most books that I read. Because this was a screaming exception.

This is the basic summary of the story: In the Lake of the Woods is O'Brien's portrayal of a historian or biographer's..." Read more of this review »

This was four stars for me until the last page. You know how the friendship will end, but such a downer? Still, as a writer, I found this memoir fascinating because of the two women's trek to writing success.

Virginia Woolf
“One feels even in the midst of the traffic, or waking at night, Clarissa was positive, a particular hush, or solemnity; an indescribable pause; a suspense before Big Ben strikes. There! Out it boomed. First a warning, musical; then the hour, irrevocable. The leaden circles dissolved in the air. Such fools we are, she thought, crossing Victoria Street. For Heaven only knows why one loves it so, how one sees it so, making it up, building it round one, tumbling it, creating it every moment afresh; but the veriest frumps, the most dejected of miseries sitting on doorsteps (drink their downfall) do the same; can't be dealt with, she felt positive, by Acts of Parliament for that very reason: they love life. In people's eyes, in the swing, tramp, and trudge; in the bellow and the uproar; the carriages, motor cars, omnibuses, vans, sandwich men shuffling and swinging; brass bands; barrel organs; in the triumph and the jingle and the strange high singing of some aeroplane overhead was what she loved; life; London; this moment in June.”
Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway
