it was amazing

Inspiring! I remember being so excited when when my sister borewed this book from the library. She was reading it first and I was so jealouse and I couldn't wait when she will finally finish it. I remember dreaming about reading it, it was a scene when Jinny was dressing up and doing her make up.
The novel is so intense and it seems that every word and every sentance it's on a right place and has a right perpouse. And as soon as I finished reading it I wished I could write myself something like thet part of Bernard's monologue. It has the athmosphere of the trouth and it touches the meaning of the existance.
I read it several times. It is definetly a bok to read more than once.

"It is death. Death is the enemy. It is death against whom I ride with my spear couched and my hair flying back like a young man's, like Percival's, when he galloped in India. I strike suprs into my horse. Against you I will fling mysefl, unvabquished and unyielding, O Death!

The waves boke on the shore."
