Austenesque, or NOT !!


I cannot cannot cannot go on. Quitting at page 111. If I continue reading, I would die of boredom. Brookner is more Austen than Austen herself, but without the wit, irony and satire. More boring than Conrad. And I was stupid enough to buy 3 of her novels last week simply bcoz she’s a Booker Prize winner. Decided to reaccommodate Atwood.

Atwood can write about nothingness and I would still devour it. Which reminds me that I also bought a couple of her novels last week. Now, where are they? I gotta rummage through these clutter …
