Lots of people in my book club struggled with this book but I loved it. It was a very immersive read for me and I appreciated what the author was doing with the story. I‘ll be thinking about these characters for awhile. 🌟

Cathythoughts I agree. It was an immersive read for me too. 👍🏻❤️ 15h

Re-reading this treasure of a book. I loved it as a young teen and I love it now. The descriptive writing is wonderful.

I blame Walmart. Pushing my cart through store, there this beauty was, right on the endcap. #PemberLittens Walmart isn't the place where I shop for books usually. Occasionally I might pick up a copy of a Bestseller I've been meaning to read. ?

Crinoline_Laphroaig Cover is textured like embroidery. And it had a protective plastic covering over it. Walmart treating books with respect? That's a first. 😮

Thought provoking. Not an easy read, but worth reading. Orwell did a good job in drawing in the reader to the book. While it paints a bleak picture, there's a semblance of hope that slowly disappears.
The middle chapter is slightly tedious with "the book" parts, but does provide much social commentary and background. The last chapter is particularly tough to read, with there being a detailed description of Smith's torture.
Definitely recommend.

But a great deal of us is together, and we can but abide by it, and steer our courses to meet soon. John Thomas says good-night to Lady Jane, a little droopingly, but with a hopeful heart.

The Count of Monte Cristo | Alexander Dumas

It is amazing how one can read a book of 1105 pages and still feel melancholy that there is no more left to read. Dumas does well to state “Fac et spera“ in his closing sentence, but that is best understood when weighed in the balance with Ecclesiastes.

Dumas is a definite favorite. I have never been disappointed with his work.
