It has been a very LONG time since I have picked up a book written so densely with description. This is NOT your modern novel and I’m not quite sure it would have made it through the current publishing process fully intact. And I do love the descriptions of the stars and their movement across the sky…
Well, the GoodReads counter has me listed at about a quarter of the way through the book. Although the chapters are not terribly long, I can only read a chapter or two at a time before needing to run off and do something else. This isn’t for want of enjoying the book but more for being unaccustomed to how the book moves. I am out of practice.
I think I am very glad I began with this book before I tackled some of the others on my list!
On a side note: a copy of Clarissa will be waiting for me at the library today! Sadly, the last time it was checked out was May 2008. I guess that just means I will have very little competition when it comes to renewing the book! Yay.
