The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---
Title: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Nov. 1930- A fug of tobacco smoke and damp clammy air hit her as she entered the cafe. She had come in from the rain and drops of water still trembled like delicate dew on the fur coats of some of the women inside.Friday 56:
January 1915- Pamela sighed the sigh of of someone with a lifetime behind them already and sat at the table. She stared blankly at the cloth and said, "I miss Daddy."Comment: First off, I had to look up the word "fug" since I've never seen it before. It means "a warm, stuffy, or smoky atmosphere in a room." The main character, Ursula, keeps dying and starting over, with only a partial knowledge of her last life, just enough to correct a problem. I am really enjoying the writing. The plot, not linear, is confusing but it is a little like figuring out a puzzle. Have any of you read this book? What did you think?
