Bridge of Clay
3 journalers for this copy...
I wasn't a huge fan of 'The Book Thief' but had read how long Zusak had slaved over this follow up novel and had hopes that I'd enjoy it more than his first effort.
Sadly, I've decided that I'm not a huge fan of Zusak. His writing is often beautiful but I just find that he 'goes on' a bit and IMHO could do with a strong editor to ameliorate his tendency to 'pad things out'. I also struggled to engage with his characters - and found myself skipping forward to finish this one.
I'm pretty sure it'll be popular with other bookcrossers though and will take it along to meetup to share with them.
