Weekly Review #11

This week I didn’t get even half the reading done I wanted to. It was rather disappointing. I got one book finished and some started. I wanted to have one other book finished before the end of the week but that just wasn’t going to happen. I also got back to doing Weekly Geeks which was great this week, I really enjoyed answering the question.

I finished Rabbit, Run by John Updike finally this week.  I enjoyed the book but there were some times I had difficulty really getting into the book.  I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Rabbit books throughout the year.  The copy I have has the second novel, Rabbit Redux in it too.  I just need to take some time away from the book for a bit.

I’ve also got Sea of Poppies and there are some portions of the novel I’m really enjoying but others I could easily do without.  There are several stories going on right now, which I’m sure will merge together at some point soon, but some of them I seem to be tuning out while I’m reading (not a good sign is it).  I’m interested to see where Amitav Ghosh is going with this story.   So far it has a similar feel to Lawrence Hills The Book of Negroes.

I’ll get the other book I started this week finished within the next few days so all is good on that front.  Until next weeks review happy reading.
