The book has arrived here in Wellington ready for our convention next year.

Special thanks to Tricia - she has good taste in books I see. This looks like a good read with an appealing story line. A New York Times Bestseller has to be good - doesn't it?

Journal Entry 5 by wingfuturecatwing from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Tuesday, March 13, 2007
Sort of a cross between Girl, Interrupted and Ya Ya Sisterhood, with a bit of Mark Twain thrown into the mix, but much better than that makes it sound :-)

Four college room-mates reunite 30 years later to farewell "Baby", another room-mate, and to re-live an epic journey down the Mississippi. Each is wrapped up in her own world and looks back at their college years in a different way, but between the lines of their memories hides Baby, the absent central character of the novel. The story drifts and flows with the rhythms of a great river, and carries you along just as certainly.

I rather enjoyed this story. The multiple characters keep the story moving along nicely, and all have relatively interesting stories. The stories didn't always go quite where I expected them to, which is good (I hate too much predictability in these sorts of books).
