I would not use digital fiction, in the same way I read because, I normally read in bed. It is a different way of filling time with phone. Karen has been particularly entertaining (see Karen posts for more details), just pity didnot come to more of a cresecendo.
Using digital fiction together is more collaborative than reading alone or just watching a film together as can talk about the options to take as go through the narrative.
Read my lips: A Stiff Drink
I saw this on pintrest.
I had a book scavange (I have previously posted about past book scavenges) to see what books I had that I could use to create a clock.
I did not have the 12 books needed.
I used 19 minutes for around the 4 position as 4 represents 20minutes so 19minutes fits about there.
I was interested to read a Nicola Moriety book because I have enjoyed books by her sister Liane Moriety.
I found it reminiscent of the Band which I recently watched at the theatre and reviewed as it was about 4 women who had become friends at school. In this case all 4 school girls were drawn together as all their names ended in C and they were Scorpio star sign. It is about them each writing an annoymous letter to confess a secret. These confessions cause ructions.
One part of the narrative is that one of the women tells the story of the letter writing to a priest in confession. The priest was not really needed for the story and I did not feel added much. This is one reason I think Liane Moriety is a better writer. However, it could just be Nicola not realised full potential yet. I’’am prepared to read more of Nicola Moriety. This book was a light and enjoyable read which I read in a couple of days. I also have Liane Moriety Truely Madly Guilty on my To be Read Shelf.
I liked the cover and blurb.
When turned pages to start reading,saw was book one; after recently being dissapointed about inconclusive ending of the Knife of never letting go which was first of a triology, that felt like a bad omen Thinking further, I have just bought the rest of Steig Larsson triology after reading the first.
However, the quote on the next page also did not engage me.
Then the next page was contents; Whw. saw had cast of characters and that was Off putting that going to be complicated. Also I wanted to get into the story rather than read about random people. Should the character list be read first or is it near the beginning to refer back to?
I have now read the prologue and started main story. It is good but do not like that it is not split into chapters that start on a new page.
After reading Girl with dragon tattoo, I do want to complete the triology. Some of the beginning, is a bit tedious going into finicial details but, worth bearing with it. A lot of characters with Swedish names, to get head around especially as sometimes same character is referred to by different names. It is a mystery / thriller type book.
