The Bourne Identity | Robert Ludlum

A twisty and fun thriller. I saw the movie when it first came out and only remembered the bare bones of the story. When Bourne is washed up the shore he has forgotten who he is and what his mission was...he returns to Zurich and his quest to find himself begins. #booked2019 #booktomovie #40thbdaychallenge #1980

I just finished my 1st book of 2019, this tragicomedy set in New Orleans in the 1960s. Ignatius J. Reilly is quite a character, as are several of the others you meet along the way in this story of Ignatius' search for a job and his place in society. Thanks for a great #NewYearWhoDis recommendation @Maria514626 @monalyisha #LitsyAtoZ #C @BookishMarginalia #ReadingClassicsIn2019 #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #192021 #1980

I just don‘t like slapstick. And Ignatius is pure slapstick. He made me laugh a few times but I preferred the storylines without him (The Levy‘s, Miss Trixie, Mrs Reilly, New Orleans).

I know I am in the minority and I hope I don‘t offend the ones who love him 😍😉, but I think Ignatius is above all an annoying character.

Still, I am glad I got it out of the way. Thanks for organizing the #Dunces buddy read Emily 💜!

britt_brooke He‘s a love/hate for sure. 2y
LeahBergen I knew when I was reading this that others would love it or loathe it - it‘s that sort of book. 2y
ValerieAndBooks But you can now check this off the #1001books list 🤗. I read this about 25 years ago and didn‘t like it. 2y

emilyhaldi Yes totally agree with @LeahBergen sorry it wasn't for you but you tried!! Thanks for joining 😊😊 2y
Mdargusch I loved the book but I strongly dislike Ignatius. 2y
Bookishthoughts He should be slapped. And other times you have to laugh! Because you're sitting there going "How does he think this is true\going to work!?" 2y
Cinfhen You know I bailed...I just couldn‘t take Ignatius either😩 2y
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I was glad you couldn‘t 😀 2y
Maria514626 Mrs. Levy is the one who makes me want to throw the book across the room. She is insufferable. 😠 (I still love the book. But Mrs. Levy—NO.) 2y

I have so enjoyed finishing these Unfinished Tales with my #LOTRChapterADay (extended edition) group. Tolkien was a great, and immensely nuanced storyteller, his son Christopher a devoted son and detailed story archiver, whose life work allowed us to see the depth of creativity and true craft his father put into all his tales. I‘ve truly enjoyed the surface tale, and the deeper tale behind its creation and evolution.

JazzFeathers Nicely said and totally agreed 😊 2y

OH HEY!! I've missed you guys. Here is review 1 of 3: FIRESTARTER!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 holy shit Batman, I loved this book. I loved the adventure and the chase. I loved the relationship between Charlie and her dad. I loved how creepy all the government characters were. As of this point in the #epicstephenking reread, this is my new favorite. #book9 #1980

This is like my favourite kind of book to read. A 1980's YA coming of age story set in a post apocalyptic society that has developed telepathic powers?! HECK YEAH! #ya #yalit #scifi #1980's #eightiesfiction #oldcovers #uglypretty
