#backpackeurope @JenP @bookwormpropaganda
Travelling from Belgium to France, reading a book set at the Mont St. Michel
@JenP can I get approval for the book. See https://www.mappit.net/bookmap/places/1807/mont-saint-michel-lower-normandy-fr/, but also in descriptions about book.

mabell I chose the same book for France! It sounds fun 😁 1y
Dulcinella @mabell It does 😃 1y
KellyHunsakerReads What did you read for Belgium and was it good? 1y
Dulcinella @Hunsakermountain didn‘t read for Belgium yet, it is my home country. Maybe the tagged book. It is rather recent. If you like historical fiction, I can recommend it. 1y

The story is interesting, but not allways as balanced as I‘d like. Sadly enough it started to get boring after some time as it was a lot about ‘me‘ (while saying at the same time it was not about her). My main objection: not very well written. I really wanted to like it more...

Victim Six | Gregg Olsen
Panpan

The book is very suspenseful. I was however horrified reading the very explicit, graphicly detailed descriptions of sex with minors, even corpses. Kind of a pity. It spoiled the book totally for me. So big trigger warning (I am anything but prudent, but it was too cruel)

laurenbescoby I do worry about the people who can even write things like that. 2y
Dulcinella @miralunasbooknook I agree:-( Strange minds they have... 2y

Brooklyn | Colm Toibin

Some books are a treat. This one is that kind of book: immensely beautiful and full of understanding of and compassion with its characters. The description of the MC first arrival in the US gives a great idea on how beeing an immigrant must feel. The insight in the fifties decades in NY from the female point of the MC is interesting. Overall: a joy to read. Not an heavy classic, but well worth the time.

Billypar I loved the movie- definitely seemed like it would be a good book. 2y

It‘s a story about infidelity, about beeing bored by/feeling trapped in marriage and motherhood.
The very honest, and even in these times modern outlook on it ( going for your own hapiness, not really thinking too much of the children) must have shocked people in the 19th century .But,I did not feel any connection to the MC. And, I can‘t see the emancipation in this which lots of others praise.

In Watermelon Sugar | Richard Brautigan
post image
Pickpick

A short, but beautiful novel. Or is it poetry?
The overall feeling is sadness and loss, the book makes you ache for things and people you don‘t know. It‘s obvious why it is on the 1001 books list.
I‘m pretty sure I‘ll reread this one more than once.
This book is not for too rational people who dislike symbolism, fantasy or fairytales.
To all the others I say ‘you won‘t regret visiting ‘watermelon sugar‘

Cathythoughts Well this brings me back. I can barely remember it , only that I loved it. ..... “ it‘s a great day , said Lee Melon .... “ for some reason I always remember this line ..” ❤️❤️❤️I will have to go back to this one 😉 2y

IamIamIam @Dulcinella I can see how being non native makes it more difficult but even as native speakers, we're quite far removed from this form of English, since it's early modern. I applaud you even bothering with it as a non native!!! 😂 Most of the people I know gave up after having it forced on us in high school! 😄 2y

Sons of Sparta | Jeffrey Siger

Really enjoyed this, but maybe more for the insight on Greek society than the mystery.

Enduring Love | Ian McEwan
post image
Pickpick

Ian McEwan again writes in a beautiful language and style about people in today‘s society. The novel starts excellent, but looses his pace fast. However, one does not read McEwan to have a lot of action and suspense. The characters wander, can‘t manage to have real understanding of eachother, and have very different memories and opinions.A central theme is the opposition between science and the world of wonder, magic, storytelling,...

tricours I‘ve also got two Bluetooth sets 😁 2y

Dulcinella @Kaye I have a avanca, don‘t know if they are available in the US, but Amazon UK has them https://www.amazon.co.uk/Avanca-Bluetooth-Headphone-Integrated-Microphone-Neon-Y.... Second one is a JBL https://www.amazon.com/JBL-E25BT-Bluetooth-Headphones-Black/dp/B01N1MYPNF. I think they don‘t last lang with me as I use them so much:-) 2y
Kaye Thank you @Dulcinella I‘ll try looking them up. I need a new wireless pair. They‘re so much nicer than the others. 🙂 2y
tricours @kaye I‘ve got a JBL Reflect Contour pair (sports headphones) and a Bose Quiet Comfort. Both are great, but pricey! 2y
Kaye Thank you for the info @tricours The price might be a factor. My husband said get whatever I want so he doesn‘t care about the cost. I‘m much more of a worrier about money than he is. I‘ll look them up. Thank you. 🙂 2y
