I’m reading The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima. It will grace my bedside table for the next day or two.
Set in a remote fishing village in Japan, The Sound of Waves is a timeless story of first love. A young fisherman is entranced at the sight of the beautiful daughter of the wealthiest man in the village. They fall in love, but must then endure the calumny and gossip of the villagers.
Have you read this book? Love it? Hate it?
What book are you reading tonight?
Sounds like a wonderful read. I love the cover.
So lovely to meet you…To be honest, these months I rejoice re-reading some of my favorites of all time…Jane Austens works and also "Gone with the wind". I can actually reproduce entire passages by heart from these books :)).
I'm between books at the moment. The last one I read was by Dean Koontz. He is an amazing writer. I always have to have a note book nearby to write down the new words I learn or the way in which he uses them.
I'm reading Up the Duff by Kaz Cooke. It's an Aussie guide to being pregnant. It's great – equal parts funny and informative. 🙂
All interesting books. Will look them up after this.
I finished Mishima's book– found it poetic, but did not like the happy ending. It began well, but seemed to make a compromise somewhere.
Read Anna Quinden's Black and Blue yesterday, and found it a very well-written book, if not terribly original. Good narrative voice, which kept me reading throughout. I sometimes find myself trying to finish a book– but this one kept me hooked.
Started on Black Water by Joyce Carol Oates today.
Hi, I'm reading The Return By Victoria Hislop and Spain's devastating civil war. Sonia Cameron was on her holidays she'd gone there to learn to dance. She has no idea of the cities shocking past as she sits in a quiet cafe looking through some old photographs, which take her back seventy years.
Not only have I not read the Mishima book, I've never heard of it. Currently I'm reading Heaven by Randy Alcorn.
Wrote By Rote
I just finished the script of "Arsenic and Old Lace." 🙂
I'm reading a book I won on Mason Canyon's blog: Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman. Too soon to say what I think about it. I'm a couple chapters in and so far I'm just not sure. There are things I like about it and other places where I go, "HUH???"
Isn't "Tigers in Red Weather" a line from a poem?
I'm halfway through Roland's Victor Standish.
