Today’s question is:
How about a chance to play editor-in-chief? Fill in the blanks:
__________ would have been a much better book if ______________________.
Hmmm, this one is a bit difficult for me. I haven’t been reading much in recent years, which is a bad thing. Because I don’t get to read very much, I am fairly strict with books: if I am not engaged within the first tenth of the book, I close it and move on. I do have an answer though, even though it may seem like a cheat.
I think The Time Traveler’s Wife would have been a much better book if it had gone on longer after I understood. There came a point probably halfway through the book that I finally understood with my heart what was going on, and I just cried. Can I just say, and you not think me weird, that this book is sooo good, even more than a year later? And Henry and Clare are totally real, in that Velveteen Rabbit sort of realness. I still flash back on them from nowhere.
Hmm, I should totally read this again.
Today, however, I am still reading Matrimony. One of the injustices of life is that it now takes me a month to read a one day book.
