I am hitting the middle part of my week off from the newspaper, but I’m trying not to focus on it. Vacation weeks always fly by, don’t they?
It was really nice on Tuesday not to be laying out pages and reviewing copy at the newspaper. I like my job, but it’s nice to get a respite now and then from a day that is usually very stressful.
I’ve been doing some editing work. I enjoy the editing process so much, and it’s nice working from home.
Have you read it? What did you think?
I found it fascinating, frightening, troubling. It’s incredibly well- written, and I really didn’t want to put the book down.
But boy, the story itself is disturbing. I hope I never meet people like the main characters, Nick and Amy. Or if I’ve already met them, I hope I don’t learn anymore about them.
If I dream about the characters, which I sometimes do after I read a book, the dreams will actually be nightmares.
Yes, that disturbing. If a book can make me feel that way about the characters, I think the writer has done a good job.
On that note, here are a couple more photos to lift myself out of Nick and Amy’s world:
Have you ever read a book that, while it was excellent, had disturbing characters that stayed in your mind after you finished the book?
