finale: wide sargasso sea
Remember that first book club pick, Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys? Well, it's almost time for the second book club pick (and picking up these posts over on Beca's wonderful blog). But before we move on, one final chance to discuss this book. I have to admit that I finished this book a while ago, as I know many others did, too. And I also have to admit that it was not my favourite.
While I love the idea that this book offers another side (or really any look at) the life of Mr. Rochester's wife I just could not get over the writing style. The idea is brilliant, the execution left me wishing that the story was told in a slightly friendlier manner. This is the kind of book that I think should be readable in just one or two sittings, but it wasn't for me, because I was never able to really get into it. I like the ambiguity of the story, though. It reminded me that there are always at least two sides to every story. Can't wait to pick up the next book for July! Thanks to everyone who participated in this round. The July posts will be on Beca's blog, so follow along there. Have a great long weekend everyone!
