Leila is finished with Mister Pip
The author must have been stressed to finish this because the last part felt very rushed through. A bit disappointed at the ending, in fact.

"At night we listened to gunfire. There were no battles. " this book is just as beautiful as it is heartbreaking.

"I had found a new friend. The surprising thing is where I’d found him - not up a tree or sulking in the shade, or splashing around in one of the hill streams, but in a book. No one had told us kids to look there for a friend. Or that you could slip inside the skin of another. Or travel to another place with marshes, and where, to our ears, the bad people spoke like pirates."

Getting very interesting but man those living conditions are awful. For both the animals and workers.

Right now, I'm more interested in the photos from each chapter than the actual story. So pretty pictures!

I bought this book about 1½ year ago. I figured since they are now making a film, I'd better start reading it. It could be my USA entry for Read The World (although I did want Percy Jackson instead...).

The chapters are so short and I'm wondering if there is an overall plotline. Still enjoying it though.

"
'Ah!' said Mr Patel. 'A very good idea. You detectives are very clever men.'
'Women,' said Mma Ramotswe.
Mr Patel looked at her sideways, but said nothing. He had no time for modern ideas."
This made me laugh out loud.

Liking it so far. Despite the fact that there are some sad themes, it's still has a light and fun tone.

A librarian suggested this for a "fun light" read. Figured I could do it for readtheworld since it's set in Botswana :)

Second book in a row that features an incestous love story in which neither of them didn't know when they had sex.

It's getting a bit tiring to read dialouges without citation marks. On the other hand, the story has finally caught me (a bit...).

It reminds me a great deal of the Thirteenth Tale by Dianne Setterfield, except much better.
