I loved it too, Lil. I thought it was so touching and poignant. Plus, Alice Sebold is such a great writer, you just go with her even while you're crying. I don't think I'll see the movie - even Peter Jackson couldn't possibly do it justice (and I loved Heavenly Creatures),Originally Posted by lildago;3803665;
I'm still plugging away at A Year in the World. It's good and she's a good writer, but it's getting a bit tedious. Every chapter is one country/region as she and her husband travel around, looking at gardens, art and then eating everything in sight. It's all blending together. I think the chapters would work better as stand-alone pieces in a travel mag or something. Still, I'll finish it, probably today or tomorrow.
