|May We Be Forgiven by A.M. Homes|
I'm trying to learn how to read for pleasure alongside studying. It's tricky because I'm not used to only being able to pick a book up for half an hour or so each night. Usually I love to read during my lunch hour and just generally whenever I have a few spare minutes, but when I'm writing an essay about a particular text I can't read anything else because I get in a huge muddle! A book takes a long time to get through this way and for me I can only do it if it's the right kind of book - one that's easy to dip in and out of.
May We Be Forgiven is the perfect book for picking up and putting down constantly. The main character, Harry, is on a bit of a journey after suddenly finding himself in charge of his brother's two children and trying to navigate through all the absurd things that are being thrown his way, and it almost adds to the experience reading a novel that takes place over a period of time, slowly. Or perhaps I'm really just not that into it? At this point of essay induced confusion it really could be either!
