My dream career:
A book reviewer!! I could read books day and night. How divine? The drawback would be when I had to read books I don't love.
I was reading the book" Love in a time of Cholera". And while the book and the writing is good, I hate the premise. Perhaps I'm over the whole serendipitious love thing, or maybe even a bit cynical. The whole entire book (ok, the whole half of a book I read) was devoted to two people who were 'soulmates' and tried to live their life apart. Each part of the book the other would be unhappy with their decisions to be apart of the other. OI OI OI. really? A whole book belly aching about the lost love of their life......I guess I want to believe that there are number of people out there that I could match and marry. Its not some kind of one-for-one debauchery. Rather, it's a type or traits that are matched. I also found it disheartening that two people would choice to live without the other, yet be miserable and do nothing about it.
Then again, maybe I am missing a major premise around the book......so I ditched it to read "the house I first believed' by Wally Lamb. So far. I am in love.....it's about the Columbine Slayings. I'm on page 78 and thus far can't peel it away from me.
