You went hiking today and my day didn’t turn out as laid back as I’d planned but…I’m continuing with my reading of Fingersmith.
It’s the sort of book I have to stop and think about sometimes. I’m a little slow around the edges. And I scare very easily. It’s more suspenseful than scary, actually, but…I don’t deal well with the unknown, either.
I say, to you, this sort of reminds me of Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence – very suspenseful and heart throbbing. It has more twists and dark areas to it, though. We discuss DH Lawrence and Henry Miller. I decide, when the right time comes, to do a flash fiction Erotica piece. And so, of course, I must do it!
I remember, almost everyone I knew, in high school (1960’s), wanted to read Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I read a page or two of it. It was boring. In my 50’s, I saw some movie of it. Now I can’t read Lady Chatterley’s Lover. I have those movie images. I like to read a book before I see a movie. I like to make my own images.
So here I go again…the plot is thickening. Oh my gosh! It’s very suspenseful. We have both agreed to do nothing tomorrow. I plan to read. If I get too scared, you’ll be home ♥
