An Imaginary Life | David Malouf
post image
Pickpick

David Malouf is hands down (in my humble opinion) Australia‘s greatest writer and although this one is not set in Oz, Malouf‘s beautiful prose is perfectly captured. An imaginary Ovid is exiled to the edge of the known world and he must discover the true meaning and power of language, identity and our spiritual relationship with the land! So many put the book down in awe moments! I first read this text in 1997 - it only gets better with age!

#Two4Tuesday Thanks for the tag @TheSpineView

At first I thought this read “21 years“ and I thought, well yes, of course, then I realized it was 2K,and I thought, well yes, of course 😂
1. I enjoy historical fiction, and setting in ancient times is fine, although I don't read it often -
2. Tagged book is the last book I read set in ancient times and I enjoyed it.

Make a great day everyone 🔱

TheSpineView Circe is a good book. Thanks for playing! 6h

Anatomy: A Love Story | Dana Schwartz

I was a bit hesitant on this read after going through some previous reviews on it. However after listening to it on audio I actually really enjoyed this story! The narrator did amazing and I was very drawn to listening to it. Early 19th century Scottish setting about a young woman‘s ambitions to become a surgeon working with a Resurrection Man to study the human body.

I tried to read it but just couldn't get into it. I think the whole jumping round as much as it did within the 1st 80 pages is what did it for me. I really want to try this book again. Idk when that will be but I wanna try damn it!

Wooooo a ghost story ? Reminds me of the Cersi Lannister quote "Everywhere in the world they hurt little girls," ?. Read for LMPBC, I enjoyed the alternate timelines and found myself eagerly turning the page.
