Just finished Requiem for Dream today at lunch. Actually a great eating deterrent. wish I had read it in middle school. I found it interesting how almost through the whole book the narration never refers to anyone as an addict or a junkie, and then it suddenly starts toward the end of the book.
is it the author, or the story that is generally praised? I’m not being sarcastic. I really want to know.
Had some of the most beautiful lines. I feel like this is probably someone’s glass menagerie type book. I wish I had read this and talked to my father about it. Or i guess I wish I had a father a little like the parts of mine who used to like to talk about things like this with me.
I’m just trying to write something about you and say it ain’t so has to play. thanks right. in case I needed a reminder.
it’s very hard for me to think of ever being comfortable with a guy who approached me because he was interested in my romantically. I really need this thing were I am friends with them first, I need to be in some safe zone where we can talk like people, neither one of us having an agenda of sex or seduction. I need to become comfortable with you first. I need to know you see a person before any gender or sexual identity. The problem is, I have no idea how to do this as an adult.
When you are young you have all kinds of mechanisms built right into life to help you meet guys in a platonic and semi-asexual way. Or in my case, lots of places to fall in love with boys who kinda treated you nicely.
I am going to start doing a paper trail of books I read so that I will be better with completing books in a timely fashion.
As I have gotten older I have become more bored, and more likely to turn on the TV instead of spending hours in text, I need to do that more.
1. I just finished Beautiful Creatures. Fun story, but the writing was talentless, no real flair for words, but a great story. this writer should consider doing screen plays instead. My favorite part was the scene in the end where Lena had to choose between being dark (and keeping her uncle/father) and being light (and killing all the good people in her family). If this choice had actually been forced the play out I would have applauded the authors way more. I still give kudos for heartbreaking imagery.
this book made me want to read I am Mordred & and I am Morgan La Fay- both my Nancy Springer. So glad I read this because it is all my little sister wants to talk about. I hope this book makes her want to read some of the other authors that the heroine loves (eliot, bukowski etc). We also both agree that Ethan was badly cast in the movie.
