Caecilia Saori :-) I started reading the book yesterday evening. a nice read, so far. too early to say more ...

Caecilia Saori I am 30% into the book and enjoying it, very much. It provides insight into the ballet I do not know too much about.

Also, I like how the author tells the whole story in two time settings. John ~ have you started with the book? what are your thoughts?

John of Canada (johnofcanada) | 271 comments Sorry I'm late Caecilia.I've just started,and I am a fan already.In her book Inside the O'briens,Lisa Genova gives a really interesting description of the care and feeding of ballet shoes.I also have a wonderful photo of a friend surrounded by dozens of her ballet shoes.I will be posting on a more regular basis.

Caecilia Saori :-) Just popping in, wanted to check if John has perhaps finished reading "Girl Through Glass"? ...

It is quite a read and having finished it a while ago, I still remember many details about it.

John of Canada (johnofcanada) | 271 comments Hi,
I now know more about ballet than I ever thought I would.It's fascinating and a joy to watch.So far I have watched Sacre du Printemps,Giselle,and bits and pieces of the Nutcracker.In addition,every time I see a reference to ballet moves(e.g:penche,arabesque,first position,tutu...etc.)I spend a lot of time looking it up.The characters are beautifully drawn,and I like the inclusion of real people such as Balanchine.There is much more tension than I expected.What will happen with Kate?Will Mira be safe?It's a terrific book so far.Much more than I expected.More to come!
