Cowboy story during the goldrush, made for a fun adventure.
I just love this man. I read it as I imagine he would present it, and it just sounded so purely Cosby.
So strange, not at all what I thought it was going to be. Wish you heard more about the events leading up to the Gileadean period, and the ending disappointed me.
But a good read.
Read this the day before I left for Costa Rica, as though I didn’t have anything else I should have been doing.
I seem to have been one of the few who didn’t read this in our high school. My dad got super excited that I was reading it, and explained how the author is from Leamington, and how it’s part of a series. Gabe was also reading it for school, so we had this big long fantastic discussion around the dinner table. That’s what I want out of this year!
Oh and yeah, I really enjoyed it, I want to read the others, especially since the 2nd book is apparently the one Ricci actually wanted to write.
Hard not to feel like Florentino is rather pathetic - get over her already, foo.
But I really liked the ending. Also some beautiful writing.
Except in my apartment, where the landlord enters immediately after knocking… So glad I’m out of there now!
Her autobiography focusing on her own rape. It was strange to read, but very compelling.
