BOOKS READ IN MARCH
Had a great reading month this March; A Japanese girl with leprosy, some D.H. Lawrence plays, gothic Austen, Bronte love & death, Bloody Shakespeare & life on Mars
- •The Girl I Left Behind, Shusaku EndoQuick read with some good ideas about being trapped in your body & mind
- •The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd, DH LawrenceAfter seeing 'Husbands & Sons' a play at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, UK which combined 3 of DH Lawrence's plays set in Mining towns, I thought I'd read them.
- •The Daughter-in-Law, DH Lawrence
- •A Collier's Friday Night, DH Lawrence
- •Northanger Abbey, Jane AustenSlowly reading through Austen this is my fourth; Catherine is a different heroine than usual Austen, has strong opinions, wild imagination & loyalty, could have done with more time at the Abbey as it's quite short.
- •Wuthering Heights, Emily BronteHaven't read any Bronte before so thought I better begin here. Took a while to get into & I nearly gave up so I decided to watch the Tom Hardy TV adaptation to figure out what was going on! So glad I didn't give up as it turned out amazing & is now a favourite!
- •Jane Eyre, Charlotte BronteGot this out the library, enjoyed it but not as much as Wuthering Heights!
- •King Lear, ShakespeareI'm going to see the play next month so thought I'd read it first, no doubt Shakespeare was a genius but hard to tell what's going on with lots of daughters & dukes
- •The Martian, Andy WeirQuick easy enjoyable read but not as good as the film
