Book of the Month: Doctor Sleep
Doctor Sleep -- The Hunger Games -- The Wild Duck -- Letters from Tel Mond Prison
Death with honor is better than life… life with dishonor.
So you’re done with M. Butterfly and you’re still not over it. Love it or hate it, are you craving further discussion and analysis?
These are all my opinions, so you may or may not agree with me.
Don’t read this if you haven’t finished it yet! I won’t hold back spoilers here!
I wanna see who else does this.
I read with the book jacket off, but then when I stop, I’ll put it back on and use the jacket as a bookmark!
"And you wonder, what’s wrong with me? Will anyone beautiful want me?"
Based on a true story that stunned the world, M. Butterfly opens in the cramped prison cell where diplomat Rene Gallimard is being held captive by the French government - and by his own illusions. In a series of flashbacks, the diplomat relives the twenty-year affair with Song Liling, the Chinese diva, from the temptation to the seduction, from its consummation to the scandal that ultimately consumed them both. But in the end, there remains only one truth: Whether or not Gallimard’s passion was a flight of fancy, it sparked the most vigorous emotions of his life.

A book series for a pick-me-up
Last but not least, we’ve got the CHERRY ON TOP:
What has been your favorite book so far this year?
I think I saw the movie, but it was a while ago. The fact that some people would say that the kids in the movie would grow up to be Mellow and Near confused me so much. Then I realized that Mellow and Near were not part of the first two movies.
Yeah, I kind of liked that the movies didn’t follow the manga and anime plot exactly because I’d be watching the plot for a third time, but at the same time it felt weird.
