    Loved this. Simply a beautiful story, authentic characters, those people you miss when a book is done. (*****)

  • Kazuo Ishiguro: Never Let Me Go (Vintage International)

    I couldn't put this down, but I was more absorbed in the plot than the writing, if that makes sense. It felt detatched, and I know it was supposed to, but I felt like I stopped short of feeling as much for it as I'd like to. Still, it was engrossing and a beautiful story. (****)

  • Michael Cunningham: Specimen Days

    Wow wow wow. I've had this one on my shelf for a while, because while I enjoyed The Hours I didn't *love* it madly, and because it was one of those books with a discription that, while intriguing, was hard to match with a reading mood. As described by The Guardian as "By far the best gothic historical sci-fi cop thriller you'll ever read," it just didn't fit neatly into one of my "I'm in the mood for ____" categories. But I finally picked it up. And devoured it. And am still digesting it. Amazing, amazing, amazing. (*****)

ROFL I totally hear ya! We've been to see a few bands play in the last couple of years and its certainly more uncomfortable as you get older! Heck I remember standing/dancing through concerts after standing in line for HOURS to get it when I was young. Now I'm looking around for chairs!
Its like I still love the music and want to go but I want to be comfortable whilst there!

HA HA!
It happens to us all Ang!
I went to see the B52's in concert this summer. Good show, but whoa did I feel old! Luckily most of the people there we at least my age!

LMAO Okay, seriously, David and I had this same conversation when we went to Bright Eyes. And we *did* hang out in the back for him. But then we went to see Blue October, and while we experienced the same thing, we said, "You know what? Screw the back of the room. We're going straight to front row, baby!"

And of course I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I agree with all the stuff about music but am too distracted by BNL on my TV to comment further. :-D

As you know..it does happen to us all..however this year is the first that we've had the good sense to be anywhere other than in the front row and we are now...are you ready....46 & 49..eek! Unfortunately, I am actually losing my hearing at a rather alarming rate so I no longer rock out without trying to protect it somewhat.
