While my school year started out OK, the same frustrations are surfacing again. I'm in a crappy mental place and I can't shake my negative attitude. I have a long weekend, so I'm going to try and get lost in one of the many books I've started and never finished.
"Zorro in the snow" of Paola Zannoner
How long have you read the soulful and at the same time exciting story? This book is about growing up, about the relationship between man and dog. Main characters: Marie - volunteer at the shelter, Luke - a student of the graduating class, ? #Zorro - border collie, a rescue dog. This is a very touching story with a deep meaning! ("A dog is not a child and not a toy but a friend") ?????
There's a flow to the writing that makes the pages fly. It's lovely. Less lovely was the feeling that very little happened in 600+ pages. Much of the plot itself dragged, and the background info slowed the pace too much. I did appreciate the foundation this built for the Zorro legend, and all the action-packed swashbuckling parts. I wished we'd spent more time with Isabel, and I think a sequel would be fun. I wouldn't revisit this one though.
Finished Z of #LitsyAtoZ but I still have 4 letters left and only 2 weeks... plus book club books to read! Can I make it? 😓
