3 journalers for this copy...
I have heard that its a good book.
I saw the name of the book and thought it was a gret name for a book.
Then I saw the price and new I could afford it and it looks so very new and it was published in September 2004.
Then I read the back and it mentioned Otago and New Zealand, both of where I live, so it can't be too bad a book!! :o)
Not an easy start to the book but will keep trying.
However I have started it again, Monday 18th, and have gotten further than last time.
Once I got past the first 30 or so pages it got better and I am enjoying it.
I like the fact that she grew up reading so much, so often. For her education as well as for herself.
I think I finished it on Sunday 2nd March, I should update my books more often!!
I plan to take this book to the next Chch meetup to see if anyone else wants to read it.
A fascinating novel/autobiography (it's apt that one of the authors she mentions is Janet Frame, who similarly blurred the lines between fiction and autobiography), tracing a life through the books that have contributed to it.
Reminded me of some great books I really must read again one day, and introduced me to some others that I'll have to seek out.
