Pilates has been done, cholesterol is being lowered, a book has been read, three letters have been mailed (five have been written) and I am seven days behind on my daily Bible reading!
My favourite part so far has been picking up a book that has more than one rhyming sentence on each page. This week I finally got around to reading Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro. After reading Remains of the Day at university I was pretty much hooked on his work but hadn't picked one up in a while. When I saw they were making this into a movie with one of my favourite actresses (Carey Mulligan) I realised I had to read the book quickly if I wanted to see the movie anytime soon. Yes I am one of those people.
It was wonderful and read a lot more like Remains of the Day, for which he earned the bulk of his fame, than any of his other books. What I like about Ishiguro is that he tells a story without actually telling you that story, you suddenly pause and realise that in all his little sidenotes and stories within stories, he has actually been taking you deep into the heart of the matter at hand. Husby is a story teller, it's one of the things I fell in love with, so there's something comforting about reading Ishiguro. I won't give you any spoilers, after my horrific spoiler experience while reading Anna Karenina I shy away from reviews. The issues of humanity and the soul raised here are often disturbing but read this book, you won't be disappointed.
