This week I’ll be doing: Up next I think I’ll read…
Over the next year, as the members of the triangle in this spellbinding novel graduate from college and enter the real world, events force them to reevaluate everything they have learned. Leonard and Madeleine move to a biology laboratory on Cape Cod, but can’t escape the secret responsible for Leonard’s seemingly inexhaustible energy and plunging moods. And Mitchell, traveling around the world to get Madeleine out of his mind, finds himself face-to-face with ultimate questions about the meaning of life, the existence of God, and the true nature of love.
Are the great love stories of the nineteenth century dead? Or can there be a new story, written for today and alive to the realities of feminism, sexual freedom, prenups, and divorce? With devastating wit and an abiding understanding of and affection for his characters, Jeffrey Eugenides revives the motivating energies of the novel, while creating a story so contemporary and fresh that it reads like the intimate journal of our own lives [x].
Random Question: Which characters (from which book) do you think deserve their own spin-off story? Why?
It’s not necessarily a spin-off but I would like to read the Hunger Games Trilogy in Peeta’s POV. Especially in the books he is not in for a lot of the time like when he is in the Capitol. I would like to know his thoughts on everything. I think it would be quite interesting.
