A good Sunday to you. The first few days of school with the children back in the classroom is always exciting and exhausting. We had gray skies most of the week, but little rain, so we were able to spend some time at the park having picnic lunches and playing loud and raucous games. Every one is so excited to see their friends and talk about their summer adventures. By Friday all the adults were tired and happy. A great first week.
I did manage to finish several books and get reviews written and I’m still reading Kraken. It is very dense and convoluted, great fun and very creepy. I want to write about it for R.I.P. V, but am not sure what I’m going to say! I’ve run into this problem with another book I finished recently, The Dervish House by Ian McDonald. I loved it, but am having a devil of a time writing about it.
Has this happened to you? You read a book you greatly admire and find yourself stuck for how to review it, at a loss for what to write. Any suggestions or tips on how to break through this block?
I have started another book for the R.I.P. challenge. See if you can guess what it is.
Just as I came to this conclusion I heard heavy steps approaching behind the great door, and saw through the chinks the gleam of a coming light. Then there was the sound of rattling chains and the clanking of massive bolts drawn back. A key was turned with the loud grating noise of long disuse, and the great door swung back.
