message 5: by Afsana (new)

Afsana (afsanaz) I also started reading today Lost: endangered species as a way to slow down my reading of the empty chair otherwise would have finished it by tommorrow morning

It was a light read as did't want something to intense that would distract me too much from tHe empty chair but it seemed that it was really just giving background to how one of the lesser known characters got on the plane. So not exciting as I felt it could be

But the next Lost-secret Identity sounds interesting so I may start that tommorrow.

So far so good in the challenge 1 a day.

I usually carry around my books but this needs more attention

message 34: by Afsana (new)

Afsana (afsanaz) wow just finished time travellers wife it was great have to add my review here to spread the word

I really enjoyed the book and though at first the constant changes in time and perception was confusing it got easier as the bok moved along as the leaps and scenes followed a kind of logical step.

I think the relationship between old henry and child claree was a bit strange and icky and you have to wonder if they really would have been together if he had not insinuated himself so much into clares life.

Is there not also a riak that because you think something is going to happen you end up not doing something that you would normally do that then lead to the event not occurring

This is definatly worth a read
