SJ, are you still on LibraryThing?
Noticed you liked She's Come Undone, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's downward spiral and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


no apologies necessary, Oprah completely irritates me. I can't believe so many people watch her 'interviews' (platform to talk about herself) and the puerile 'Dr Phil'. I liked 'Dirt Music' better also. It is very 'Australian' so it's great that it appeals on an international level. 'Kavalier and Clay' is a good read too.

Hi again

If you have read the kite runner, I think you would like "A Thousand Splendid Suns". I just finished it. It was beautifully written
So glad you said that about Oprah!!! I wonder if she has actually read all the books on her list or whether she joins part of the hype when a book gets some buzz. Anyway, I'm not one of those awful snobby people who are cynical all the time, so please don't think that I am!! I am actually from Brisbane, not Melbourne, but close enough. Which part of the left coast are you from? I see you have Cloudstreet by Tim Winton too, did you enjoy it?
If you have read other Margaret Atwood, I think you would really like "Oryx and Crake". It's one of my favourites, although it has had mixed reviews.

I see you have 'Seven Types of Ambiguity'. Did you enjoy this book? We read it as part of a book club and there were mixed opinions.
I see you also have 'The Road' - that and 'Oryx and Crake' would have to be my favourite branch into sci-fi/ apocalyptic fiction.
