I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit difficult to get into, not surprising since, I started with the second book of the trilogy, but once I got it, I love it. I am looking forward to reading the other two books... now if only I can get them.
Never underestimate a children's book. This blew me away. When my Dad bought it for me, a couple of weeks ago, I have to admit, I was a little insulted. Though I've never actually read this book, I have seen it around ever since I was in primary school and as such I have unfortunately thought it was a book only for children and I never thought about reading it and I never thought I would think about reading it. Anyway when I got it, I was a little bit insulted and I thought my Dad thought I read kiddie books in any case, I accepted the gift and put it in the pile of books in my bathroom. I never thought I would read it, in fact I resolved myself into not reading it and I forgotten all about it. Then today, finishing Anansi Boys the night before I found myself lacking of new reading material while I took my daily visit to the bathroom. I had all but to read the first few pages and I was already hooked. The protagonist Kit won me over immediately, as well as the rest of the supporting cast. Really the story was a simple one but it was very cleverly written, and I don't know, I just really liked it.
Books I've read in '10. Old books new books, just books I've read in the year 2010.
