And it's here!
How fast it did arrive!!
And how happy I am with it!!!

Thank you a million times, xtra, for this fantastic Ibsen celebration RABCK draw of yours and for buying and sending me this book.
As I told you before, by PM, I won't be able to read it as soon as I would like to, once I've drawned myself in bookrings and I'll have to read all those before picking this one up.
Anyway, I'll journal it as soon as I get to it, and that's a promess!

Happy Ibsen Year to you too!

After all I did start it in between rings... I've been reading one so heavy that I don't carry it around and... starded carrying this one around!

I've read the first two plays already and liked it very, very much!
I thought it would be a tougher read but it isn't at all. Liked the second one, "Ghosts", best.
The "Doll's House" is wonderfully built up, but it gets a bit hard to understand such an amazing spin of mind towards clarity on the truth about the marriage and the life of the both, in such a short moment! But what a "finale"!! (the real one, not the german one!)
"Ghosts" has a great ending as well, although in this one there was a moment before the end, while the conversation between mother and son took place, that made things to me a bit obscure... it's difficult to understand the point on the son's speech and one's idea of it goes in several directions before getting what it is all about... if one does get it!

By now I'm looking all over the place to see if there's an Ibsen play on stage these days!!...

And I will have to interrupt this reading for a while now, once another ring arrived at my hands... and it's a light one so that's the one I'll be carrying around for the next days!
