Barbara's Random Thoughts

It's Lucinda's fault.

Tomorrow night is my book club. On Lucinda's suggestion, I've been slogging through this. And I have this to say:

Dialogue should be indicated with more than just capitalization and commas. Sentences should end before you feel like you're going to die because you haven't taken a breath for a page and a half because the sentence just keeps on going.

I will finish the last 60 pages tonight if it kills me. We'll discuss it tomorrow night. And for our next discussion I am insisting that we read children's/YA fantasy. Because I AM THE LEADER, dangit, and I don't care if Saramago won a Nobel Prize, we're gonna read a kids' book.
