[quote=DandJ;18811095]I have chills reading your thoughts.

I'm glad that the medical stuff has been dealt with and that you're OK. That's the important stuff.

You're going to adore the rest of the book, I just know it.

You should email Pete. Is he married?[/quote]

He is married to a Japanese journalist named Fukiko Aoki. He's 75 years old. She looks younger.

Sorry, Ketabcha. My matchmaking skills aren't what they used to be.

No problemo, Dawn. I'm not in the market for a hubby. Thanks, though.


I finished Hamill's Forever this morning.

It is everything you said it would be. It's really a wonderful book.

Thank you, phonelady61. If I suddenly decide that I need a hubby I will DM you.

I have not read Postmistress but I just read about it on amazon. It sounds like an interesting book. For some reason I immediately thought of "Letter To Three Wives." I wonder who the letter was from and to? I'll have to read it to find out.

"Fluke" by Christopher Moore. Rather disappointing after reading his "A Dirty Job". Overly explicatory almost to the point of condescension, it reads somewhat like a book from the Scholastic list of middle school titles with a few porny allusions not yet edited out. But his characters still have that air of the absurd, and it's progressing like a decent adventure yarn about people doing whale research, so there is something to be learned from reading it.

Did I tell you that I gave up on Man Walks Into a Room by Nicole Krauss? Well, I did. Honestly, I didn't care if he remembered the 24 missing years or not. Frankly, I wanted to forget the 80 or so pages that I'd already read, so...

Now I'm more than halfway through Incendiary by Chris Cleave. It's roughly written (not a lot of punctuation, etc...) because the whole book is a letter from a woman, presumably not well-educated, to Osama bin Laden after her family is killed in one of his crazies. I found it a bit trying at first, but I'm really enjoying it -- I feel for her and I genuinely like her.

I can't say that every one of you would enjoy it (Ketabcha, you wouldn't, I don't think) but it is an interesting character study.

What a shame. Christopher Moore usually delivers such wonderful books.
