FountainOfWords Yep we are currently planning a 10 day trip which should take us around most of the highlights of the country. So looking forward as we are splurging on this one 😊 2mo

This book is a bit of a mixed bag for me. One moment it gets tedious and the next you are hooked. It‘s like walking in a normal, mundane neighborhood for sometime with nothing interesting to see when at one point you turn a corner and get this unexpected magnificent view.

Ok so I‘m at 40% and enjoying this however the “action” has yet to come as the writer eases you into the story gently however not in a tedious way. It gives some detail about Cairo and Jewish traditions etc without being pedantic.

L'amica geniale | Elena Ferrante

Any Elena Ferrante readers? Have never read any of her books, which one should I start with?

Seems like it‘s gonna be a good one - just started chapter two, so still deciding what to make of it.

13North Did you like it? What was your experience? 3mo
FountainOfWords I would say it‘s a narrative about relationships the narrator has with the other characters, especially the female protagonists. This also versus an event which occurs early in the book. Whilst I enjoy any analysis of interpersonal relationships, I could see some people finding this tedious, although this is not something I experienced whilst reading. So liking it is very subjective, I would say. Also it has explicit sexual descriptions. (edited) 3mo
FountainOfWords If you think this is something you would like, I definitely recommend. 3mo

Nothing special so far and am already well into Vol II. Was not my choice as in a book box, wouldn‘t have picked up myself to be honest but thought might as well read once on my tbr cart.

An easy however decent read which combines the element of mystery with interpersonal relationships and everyday challenges. I read after a more demanding book and found pleasantly refreshing, intriguing and funny.

The Moon and The Tower - that would make a good book title. Can you guess what this is all about?

Looking to swap these two duplicate Book Depository bookmarks with any of the other three in the set. #bookmarkswap #bookdepository

Nute I wish that I had what you were looking for. Those are lovely! I‘ve never gotten bookmarks in my Book Depository orders. I didn‘t know to expect them. Good luck with your search!🙂 4mo
FountainOfWords Oh what a shame! May I ask where you are based? I order in Europe. 4mo

Onto Chapter 6 and promising to be a good read based on completely different culture, which is already proving insightful.

Gabriel Garci ?a Ma ?rquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude | Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harold Bloom

So my colleague came back from lunch hour and says “I‘m going to look up this book a friend I just met is reading “A hundred fears of Solitude”. I go “Oh what an original (not) name”. She starts googling the title while looking a pic of the book cover. Meanwhile I look at the same pic only to see the name of the author - Gabriel Garcia Marquez! Erm, I say, that‘s years not fears! As you can deduce my colleague is defo not into books at all. 😂
