I just got a little twing of a lump in my throat and a tiny rising of the hairs on my neck as I wrote “#50.” Cause that means I’m done. I’m free from the tyranny of a new years resolution which has been well worth it. Pushing myself to read so many books in a very busy year has been very rewarding. More rewarding than having finished a semester of grad school that’s for sure.
So number 50. Not the number 50 I wanted, but the one I ended up with. The Napoleon of Notting Hill. It felt like a book I had to read for school. To me that means I should be able to pull out some symbolism, overall themes and a write at least 1000 word critical analysis of it. I’m not going to go into any of those details here because they will bore you. But I will say I thought the book was rather short. It should have been developed a bit more with the fighting scenes. But that is neither here nor there now.
I chose this book because it all takes place around Kensington, London. I know the streets and the neighborhoods they talked about quite well. So it was easy for me to imagine in my brain this nonsense happening where it happened. It was a good read. The whole war was built on a farce. Hahaha. Imagine: A war being based on farce! So obviously fiction……
So I’m done. I will keep reading this year. This night even. No rest for the weary. I will have a top 5 book list. Actually a whole list of best of 2010, so get pumped for that. Now you guys won’t be bored with stupid book reviews any more most importantly. I know I’m tired of posting them.
That is all. I have to get going. The uni library is closing and I have to make my way to the other library before it closes to return all these books. TTFN friends.
