Current Reads: (Reading) Blindness by Jose Saramago; "A city is hit by an epidemic of "white blindness" which spares no one. Authorities confine the blind to an empty mental hospital, but there the criminal element holds everyone captive, stealing food rations and assaulting women... A magnificent parable of loss and disorientation and a vivid evocation of the horrors of the twentieth century, Blindness is a powerful portrayal of man's worst appetites and weakness" Considering I recently saw the movie "Contagion" (where Spike made sure to cough violently at the end of the movie when the theater was dead silent and necks snapped in our direction with looks of alarm, jerk) this book is freaking me out! That is not to say that it is not worth reading, it absolutely is as I can't seem to put it down, but you need a strong stomach to make it through what happens when society breaks down. Worth mentioning is that the author writes in a run on style, without identifying who is actually speaking so at times it can be hard to keep up with who is talking.
(Finished) Run Like A Girl, How strong women make happy lives by Mina Samuels; Review and giveaway to come next Tuesday! The Book Thief by Markus Zusak; I thought this book was ok, maybe I would've liked it more had I read it rather than listened to the audio book. I wasn't overly fond of the narrator's voice. Also, I originally thought this was a true story about a book thief I had heard about on NPR but notsomuch. It wasn't until the very end that I got emotionally involved enough with the characters to really enjoy the story.
