2016 Reading Challenge care of Modern Mrs. Darcy
By Marilynne Robinson
A book you’ve Previously Abandoned
Oh gosh, y’all. I should have kept this one abandoned. To be honest, I had forgotten that I’d tried to read this one already. It was before the handy dandy record keeping days of goodreads, and it’s a Pulitzer Prize winner that I hear about all the time.
This was not for me. It was suppose to be written in the style of a letter of a dying man to his son. But often is takes on the tone of a journal. And it reads like a haphazard, willy nilly journal. Not like a novel journal that follows some logical order and some reason for the different scenes included.
Maybe there is some high brow literary theme that went over my head, but all I can comment on is how tedious this book was. Unless you are hard core into southern literature or religious literature, I’d skip this one if I could go back in time.
