Musing Mondays, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, is:
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
So I’m reading Of Love and Other Wars by Sophie Hardach – the stories of some Jewish and Quaker characters from the outbreak of WWII. It’s quite readable and given my recent streak of DNFs, I’m not keen to abandon this one, but it is slow going. I think it’s because the author is trying to have too many threads of the story going (Esther as a young girl and now as an adult, Miriam & Paul, Paul on his own, Charlie, Grace and Morten/Max). I know that the characters are linked but I cannot remember how Grace and Max fit into the stories of the others, and I’m not really all that interested in Esther even though I should be because she’s a vibrant young physicist.
Oh well, I’ll carry on.
