I finished Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand and I did like it, for the most part, but felt like I was slogging through after awhile. My enjoyment level was on the low end and my come-on-get-on-with-it level was sort of high. Too high for it to fall into my unputdownable category. I think the title was all wrong. It didn’t feel so much like a stand, more like a non-committal shoulder shrug.
Now I’ve begun WYGB and I am fully hoping and expecting that like Jonathan Franzan, I too tear through the chapters with heedless pleasure. We’ll see!
After reading Loretta’s post HERE. I thought Still Cove by Gladys Taber sounded perfect and I found a used copy cheap on Amazon.
I also have An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin, Big Brother by Lionel Shriver, And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini on my short list.
If you just finished something that made you gasp with delight do let me know, but in the comments, not an email. Emails slip through the wide slats in my mind too easily. I like to have them all corralled in my BOOKS section.
