This is a novel that is so far fetched that it can be very hard to believe and follow. That said, you really connect with some of the characters like Oly and Chick. Or at least worry for them. It's hard to really describe but if you take the Isle of Misfit toys and give them a manipulative leader and a reality TV show then you're almost there.
@leslieseidel it will be coming your way soon!

Jillybeane I read this in high school and liked it. I‘m not sure how it would hold up reading it as an adult. 9mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Jillybeane it wasn't a bad read, it was just a tough one for me. 9mo
britt_brooke Definitely one of the weirdest books I‘ve ever read. I rated it “so-so” as well. 9mo

And now I'm off to watch the movie! #booktomovie
Agatha Christie is definitely an amazing writer with a gift for mysteries. I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It had great characters, a solid plot and a well executed mystery with lots of murders! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was a magical rollercoaster of ups, downs and barrel rolls. It is so whimsically written that you can almost get lost. I dearly loved the symbolism and underlying meaning of everything. Being a lover of whimsy and magic this book hit me in the fantastical feels. I hope @leslieseidel loves it as much as I did! On it's way to you ✉️📬 #lmpbc #teamk @thebluestocking @Ingerella Now to watch an interesting film version from 1983...

thebluestocking Whoo! I‘m glad this was a winner for you. 11mo
leslieseidel Yay! Can't wait. 11mo
WhatThePuck The movie was just as interesting! Even from 1983. 11mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck I'm pretty pumped to watch it. 11mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @WhatThePuck I love old bad movies haha 11mo

Ingerella I'm both reading and listening to And Then There Were None. I wanted to check out the audio because it's narrated by Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey! I should finish it pretty quick! Being on vacation is a big help too. I anticipate mailing it early next week. 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @Ingerella check you out!! That's wonderful! Are you enjoying it? 12mo
Ingerella Yes! I am! How's yours coming along? 12mo

Whimsical.Curiosity @Ingerella it's going well. I should be done and ready to mail soon. Bradbury's writing style is the most unique I think I've ever read. I didn't think about also listening to it. Thats a great idea! 12mo
thebluestocking Mine‘s coming along. I hope to finish this weekend! 12mo
leslieseidel Just reconnecting on Litsy after a wonderful Thanksgiving trip to family in Maryland. I am finished and sending off today! 12mo
Whimsical.Curiosity @leslieseidel oh yay!! Glad to hear it was a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'll be mailing to you on Friday. 12mo
leslieseidel @Whimsical.Curiosity great! Thanks! 12mo

Here are my four choices for the swap. Let me know what y'all think. Two of these I won in a giveaway and the other two have been on my shelf for years and I just haven't read them.
@leslieseidel @Ingerella @thebluestocking

Whimsical.Curiosity @thebluestocking oh yeah!! 🤣❤️ 13mo
leslieseidel Great choices. I would choose Something Wicked or Fahrenheit 451. 13mo
