Her-land



My name is Marianna, I'm from England,
not old, not particularly young.
I like to read, to write, to walk and to think.
Must stop the thinking, I can get a little serious...
My memory seems blotted out by one giant bruise, and I can't stop watching the colour of it change.

Meh, there is such an overall feeling of ‘meh’ about this book. Some parts were excellent, and some threads of characters I enjoyed following. Yet the ending was extremely disappointing, 2 chapters mostly unreadable, and the interest it held at the beginning, retreated further and further hroughout. 
I wish I hadn’t wasted my time, what a terrible feeling to have at the end of a book!

After my brief sortie into 1930s rural California, I traveled back further to seventeenth century Salem for some hysteria and witches. I’d like to see the film or this performed, as obviously reading a play is always a strange experience. Again, I enjoyed it, as I did with the two other Arthur Miller’s I have read. 
Back to the near present next.

Number one on my quest to further my reading of some of the classics. I didn’t think I would like this at all, was all set to be bored and read it under duress, but no, I enjoyed it very much and became empathetic with the characters in the short time it took me to read it.

Oh wow, after reading the last Shirley Jackson and feeling oddly disappointed, I was a little nervous about reading this. I needn’t have been. Classic Shirley Jackson, and her first novel too, written when she was 32 in 1948. So closely observed, so intricate.
Shirley Jackson book covers are just the best.
