I liked it.
Especially the last several pages. And the last paragraph? Spectacular. It really painted the scene in your head. The book may have been written in 1937, but it could have just as easily been written in 2007. Good stuff.
My second and third books are going to be ones I've already read. I planned on reading only books that I hadn't read before—but I had to make an exception for these next two. JQ is reading the Harry Potter series for the first time through and he is now on book six. I've decided that I'd like to read the last two books in the series along side of him so we can discuss them like the true nerds we are. This is going to be tricky, seeing as how I get tired and stop and he wants to keep on reading. I'm already forty pages behind him. We don't want to get too far ahead of each other so it looks like I'll have to take the book in the bathroom with me—if you know what I mean.
Those books read really fast so I expect to be done with them in just a couple of weeks. After that I plan on reading (in no particular order):
- The Secret Life of Bees (thanks to Shades for reminding me of this one again)
- Animal Farm
- Twilight (thanks to rave reviews by Vegas Princess)
- Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
