So I finally did finish The Last Temptation of Christ, and am really just glad that I did.  I started it in 1993 or 4, so finally, it's done.  And the last temptation is precisely what I had expected it to be.  Last time I spoke more kindly about the book, because when I finished I just felt weird.  Oh well.  It's nice to have completed it.

So another weird book, in a different way was 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami.  This was also oddly religious, and strange, but incredibly compelling.  I did want to see how this big book ended, for sure.
I really don't know how to describe it, as it was very unusual.  I guess I'll leave it at that.  It did have a really unusual love story, with, you guessed it, a happy ending after all.  You know that I love a happy ending.

I don't know what will be the future of this poorly tended blog, but thankfully, there are so many books to read that I guess I'll keep checking in. 

Oh my goodness, now here's a good book: The Last Letter from Your Lover, by Jojo Moyes.  I did not believe how much I enjoyed this.  Not that I'm into infidelity, but this was so well written that I could hardly put it down.  And yes, a happy ending, after much heartache and remorse.  I know that I look forward to reading more by Jojo Moyes!

Happy Summer!
