Started this one this morning. Book club book. I probably wouldn‘t read this one, otherwise. Too close. Too painful.

Great, fun read. Perfect for Halloween, or the Halloweenie In you. Witches, demons, ghosts, and fae folk galore. But it‘s more—the plight of women throughout history, the molds forced upon them, the brave being persecuted for stepping out of that mold. Though a little predictable at times, and leaving stray bits and pieces for a sequel, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Curiouser and curiouser. Did anyone else have an issue accessing Litsy the last three days? I got a completely blank screen no matter how long I waited for it to load.

CouronneDhiver I didn‘t have that problem but a few others did. Delete the app and reload it... the tech team did a fix/update 9mo
TheBogwitch @CouronneDhiver I was going to but it said it would delete all the info associated with the account. Thankfully, all is well now. 9mo

Bailedbailed

I‘m astonished. The Shadow of the Wind is one of my favorite books. I‘ll admit that Angels Game and Prisoner of Heaven were only so-so for me, but I did mostly enjoy them. I was so excited for this book, and I‘m in the WAY minority here, but it just dragged for me. I read a lot; two weeks into this book and I barely got 100 pages in. It is very rare that I bail on a book, but I did this one. I will give it another go in the future though.

SailorMoon I'm so sorry you didn't like it... it's true that it is different from the rest of the other books from the "Barcelona saga", it has more surreal things going on... but I just couldn't put it down. It's the one I liked the least among the others, but I thought it still was a good story. Give it another shot maybe some other time? ? 9mo
TheBogwitch @SailorMoon I‘m definitely going to give it another go over the summer, when reading time is more abundant. Being a writer, I spend most of my day with words! I mostly read in the morning over coffee. This book requires more attention. 9mo
SailorMoon Glad to hear you haven'y given up completely on it! You are a writer? Sounds amazing! I actually studied to become a journalist in my own Country and even though I changed my mind midway through university, I still spent all my free time writing. Have you had anything published I can look up? 9mo

TheBogwitch @SailorMoon I have seven published novels. (Traditional, not self-published.) Three fantasy, three romance, and my latest is literary fiction. (The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers and Their Muses.) 9mo
TheBogwitch @SailorMoon where are you from? 9mo
SailorMoon Of course, I wasn't comparing the work of an author to my attempts of writing fan fictions or pieces for online publications, I hope it didn't come out wrong! Anyways, I'm from Italia. Wow, seven novels... a great accomplishment!!! I will look up the one you just said! 9mo
TheBogwitch @SailorMoon of course not! I didn‘t take it that way at all. Italia! The land of my people! Do you live there still? 9mo
SailorMoon I do still live here!!! So I get you are part Italian as well? 9mo
TheBogwitch @SailorMoon I‘m almost 100% Italian. 🤗 I have a great grandmother who was English. 9mo
SailorMoon Well, nice to meet you then, fellow Italian 😉 which part of Italy are you from, if you don't mind me asking? 9mo
TheBogwitch @SailorMoon the Napoli area. Calabria and Avelino. 9mo

I‘m not sure what it is—smugness or petulance of tone?—about John Irving‘s style that gets under my skin, but that was the only nit I have about this book. And, in this case, the tone I get from his style worked perfectly. The story is a timely one, even if most of it takes place in the later part of the 20th century. A truly worthy read.

There are a few authors who can do no wrong by me; Leif Enger is one. Another quiet story that has a big voice. There are no big booms, no crescendo of reveals. Just a story of a man who met death a few times, helped to save his town in the most understated ways, and lived his life.

Had I not already read Beartown and known it was a book about hockey that isn‘t at all about hockey, I‘d never have picked this up. I am a huge Backman fan and will read anything he writes. This one ranks up there with all his others. Heart wrenching and uplifting and gorgeous. As always.

Fans of Anne will love this book. It‘s written in the same style right down to the chapter headings. It‘s not quite as rosy as Anne; we all know how it must end. Worth a read.
