I am not quite sure why this book is on the #1001books list. It is well written but a bit too dull.

What am I missing? This #classic is on the #1001Books list ... but I find it rather dull and simple.

Becker I also found this book a bit tedious to get through. I guess every book is not for everyone even if it is a classic. 2mo

To this point I have failed to read Henry James. And so far this book is fascinating... but I am not sure how well I would have liked James ifToibin has his character right. #1001Books #Reading1001

Liz_M This book is much better than any written by James, imo. 😁 Even with a final chapter that was so annoying that I knocked off a star. 3mo
Hunsakermountain Thanks @Liz_M! Now I am curious about the ending. I will finish tomorrow. 3mo

Reading this little classic. I know nothing about it going in.

Kaye Good southern writing, but I wanted to toss it across the room when I was done. I‘ve never gotten so irritated by a group of book characters in my life ! They all needed a good whoopin. 6mo
Hunsakermountain I ended up loving it. There was a lot of humor in there despite it being so full of tragedy. 5mo

This book is disturbing, exciting and complex. It makes me think. It‘s HARD to read did to the structure and style. So I am both reading and listening at he same time and it helps a lot. #JoseSaramago #audiobook

WanderingBookaneer It is challenging, but such a fascinating and original book. 6mo
Liz_M I loved this book. But it did take my bookclub a few months to forgive me for recommending it. Oops. 😁 6mo
Hunsakermountain I just finished and loved it! So glad I didn‘t recommend it to my IRL book club. They would not appreciate it! 6mo
Liz_M I also recommend the tagged book by Saramago. It's a bit more detective novel and thoughtful about self-hood. 6mo
