FRIDAY FIRSTLINERS

powerfulwomenreaders

I have been reading up a storm for the past three days; maybe that’s why we’ve had rain, rain and are rain lately on the Texas Gulf Coast. A book I started Thursday evening was Nutshell by Ian McEwan, author of Atonement, one of my all-time favorite books and films. The novel is the story of Hamlet, in modern times, told from the point of view of a fetus still in his mother’s womb. Here is the opening:

“So here I am, upside down in a woman. Arms patiently crossed, waiting, waiting and wondering who I’m in, what I’m in for.”

Yes, it’s a fascinating concept, and the writing style is unique as well. I am really looking forward to reading more as the day progresses. Happy Reading!
