Finished book!

Wink, the greyhound, smiling.

I finished How I Live Now tonight. I was satisfied with the ending...I was worried a bit.
My last post talked about controversial topics in this book, one being the love affair between cousins. Other touchy topics included scenes of war and death...some quite uncomfortable. There was one scene where crows were circling and eating flesh from dead bodies. There was a somewhat graphic, yet short, killing incident. I don't know if this is considered controversial but the narrator always refers to God in the lowercase god sense. That was different.

I definately think this is a worthwhile book to read. I'd give it 2 thumbs up. It was a fast read. The voice of the narrator drew me in and made me care for her.

This book took me out of my box because it was somewhat futuristic. It was set in almost present time but during the next world war.

I hope this blog had lots of activity this summer!!!!!

Kariann, where are you???????????????????????
