“We are all guilty of seeing things through the lens of our own lives.”

This guilt is my current heartbreak. It helps to see my feelings articulated on the page.

Good book. Started out a little slow for me but then turned out to be a good book. Loved the ending.

Ulysse from Bagdad | Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt
post image
Mehso-so

3/5 Some parts I enjoyed, some parts I found too sanctimonious. To be honest, I was far much more interested by the 40-page diary at the end, in which Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt wrote his thoughts before, during, and after the writing of this book. I liked the references to Ulysse, I liked the father as a character, adding a humorous note to the heavy and sad subject of illegal immigration.
In pic: my cat, not happy because of the flash, haha

This is easily one of my top ten - if I had to get rid of my library, books. The terror came after decades of warning signs. The only way to not repeat history is to learn from it .

Wow! What an amazing read. So many times you wish for a story to take you away, out of the present and transport you into the book itself. This was that book! Two sisters in France, WWII, love and loss. A tragic but beautiful story. #warbooks

violabrain I love this book! I read a couple years ago and I still think about it… 3d
Smartypants @violabrain I loved it too! Read it for book club at work and I used to live in Paris as a teenager so I really was transported into the story. Glad you enjoyed too! 💕 3d

Smartypants @DLQBOOKNERD yes, it was excellent! I can‘t wait for the next book selection! 2d

Continuing my Paris reading, alternating between the classic Baedeker‘s Paris travel guide, and the novel Paris, a saga spanning the years 1261 through 1968.
Bandette 🐶 loves to read with me as long as I keep her properly covered up under the blanket!

Chrissyreadit Hi!!! How are you? 1w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit doing great! Got to see my grandkids on Friday & Saturday, and today Im having a nice quiet day to myself. Best of both worlds! Hope you are doing well. And your daughter I met at the National Book Festival - I hope she is well. 1w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie that does sound like the best of both worlds- is your son still in Cali? My daughter is well! She‘s still modeling and living in LA I miss her so much! But we talk every day. 1w

tpixie @Chrissyreadit that‘s amazing about your daughter! Congrats! It is really far away but you‘re excited that they can chase their dreams. I have a sundown in San Diego vlogging poker blogs https://youtu.be/hGFv1uwydKQ my dancer was doing great until Covid hit and so he came back home took some classes and he‘s heading off to nursing school this fall He‘s in the Netflix movies The Prom and Christian summer camp musical A Week Away. 1w
Chrissyreadit @tpixie that poker blog was crazy- it‘s amazing at the opportunity social media provides! Does he love living there? Good for your other son on nursing school! Did he ever want to follow in your footsteps as a Dr? 1w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit yes loves San Diego. The weather is always great. Great zoo and ocean Adam did earlier, but now he‘s older, he wants a quicker schooling. 1w
Chrissyreadit I‘m interested in this book- I read Sarum about 30 years ago and loved it but I haven‘t read any chunksters since having kids 🤣 1w
tpixie @Chrissyreadit I hadn‘t heard about him, but then ran across this book. I‘m listening to the book but went to the library to get the physical book for the family tree, and saw his others. Sometime I‘d like to invest some time reading those. He does a good job integrating history with the book characters. They are chunksters!! 1w
