i’ve been reading alot of young adult literature lately, since i can snief it from the library at SSA. last week i read sabriel by garth nix. i’m not actually sure i would call this a young adult book – it scared the hell out of me. it was good, just…intense. i’m reading the sequel this week but it’s actually a little disappointing. i don’t like the characters as much at all – they’re not quite sympathetic enough, or smart enough or something. on friday i hope to be able to trade it in for the third and final book.
i also re-read the giver by lois lowry. i was – i am – absolutely floored. this book bothered me so very very much. i’m not sure if it’s because i’m over empathizing now that i have a child now, or what, but i actually had to turn on the tv and watch something stupid just to get the overwhelming sense of loss out of my head. i did not feel uplifted at the end, i was just horribly horribly sad.
avi’s up, i’ll finish this later.
today’s title is from the musical pardon my english.
