1. To Have and To Have Not by Ernest Hemingway
I finished this the other night and still thinking on what to say about this one.... I have to say I excepted more since this Hemingway and this is a book that many people have to read in high school. This book was just okay I understand what was message was is when someone has to go on the other side of the law to survive its very hard if not impossible to come back to the right side again. I really felt bad for Harry after he lost his arm and can understand how he would become bitter just about life after that. 3 Stars
Im trying to get back into my reading because I miss my reading time and just the escape. I already know I will be doing good to get 50 in this year because I still have a 4 and 2 year old running around.
Happy New Year
Happy New Group here
This place is full of friends
I hope it never ends
Its brew of erudition and good cheer.
2. Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
This was a quick re-read for me. I watched this on Netflix last week so I had to go revisit the book as well. I loved the movie and on this one it is a toss up on which was one was better the book or the movie. The book is a lot darker then the movie, in the movie Holly was just a free spirit but in the book you see Holly as a very damaged person that is afraid to settle down and having people around her that really care. Holly is survivor because she always had to be so she uses men without getting attached. The book is told from "Fred" point of view, what he sees and what he feels and so of course when Holly leaves after she is arrested the question is still up in the air "What ever happened to Holly" And after everything is said and done he just cant forget about her, he still has the bird cage that he takes everywhere me moves to and actually goes out and find her cat and Im hoping gives the poor thing a name. Enjoyable little afternoon read. 4 stars
