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!
