Third book finished for #NovelNovember. @Andrew65

I loved this memoir by Stephen King. The tips on writing are useful, but I liked even more his comments on his most well known books and his honest thoughts about his fight with alcoholism and his recovery from a near-fatal accident.

Librarybelle I didn‘t realize he got so personal in the book! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo
kwmg40 @Librarybelle I'd read this book in print but also borrowed the audiobook from my library, as it includes interviews with his sons. These give even more insights into his personal life. 2mo
kwmg40 @TheAromaofBooks Thanks for the encouragement! 2mo

After You'd Gone | Maggie O'Farrell

How I love O‘Farrell. This one‘s another favorite. Alice saw something in Edinburgh, leaves the city immediately afterwards, steps into the traffic in London and is taken to the hospital in a coma.
Was it a suicide attempt? The book is about love and betrayal, family and friends, happiness and despair. It‘s a wonderful sad read. I‘ll carry Alice‘s story with me for a while.

Thank you for sending me this book @CarolynM 😘

Allah is Not Obliged | Ahmadou Kourouma

Mehso-so

What a mess, West-Africa in the 90s. When his mother dies and he is left without family, a young boy from #IvoryCoast travels through war torn Liberia and Sierra Leone in search of his aunt. He becomes a child soldier and witnesses all the horrible things a kid shouldn‘t. Drugged and hyper he writes down his story.

Librarybelle This sounds heartbreaking 10mo
Cinfhen The history in modern day Africa is just as heartbreaking as the days of early slavery 10mo
BarbaraBB @Librarybelle @Cinfhen It is heartbreaking indeed and it seems hopeless 💔 10mo
Megabooks Thinking about what the west has imposed on Africa and the issues colonization and slavery created just breaks my heart. It‘s been hard for me to have the emotional space to read these stories this year with the other issues I‘ve had. 10mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks I can understand that. It is hard to read and to deal with. 10mo
