I told you in a previous post that I'd finished The Princess Bride by William Goldman. I found it delightful, and I recommend it for all great readers out there. I shan't do a review at present, for if you wish to no what the book is like, think exactly of the movie (hardly any different), and if you've yet to see the film I suggest you do so at once. (There is minimal swearing, and that, if I remember correctly, is the worst part of the whole film)
Also, many thanks to you fellow bloggers who've purposed to post positive papers (I know they aren't papers, really) on Little Dorrit (How's that, Mrs. General, for shaping my lips???).
I am nearly finished with the series and I am very happy with it as of yet.
I fear I never gave Dickens a proper chance. I think though that it was a result of his being rather too good at what he did. He portrayed human nature all too well. His evil being were indeed evil, those sad characters make me cry, and I feel such heartbreaking pity for the pitiable characters that I want to throw it away. Why? Because if I pick up a work of fiction, it is to be amused. I wish to escape this wretched, ugly world for a few minutes and pretend that things end well sometimes. Anyway, Dickens ends up being somewhat of a downer because he was so brilliant. However, if one has the patience and is prepared to feel sad many times in the process, he is well worth reading/watching
Thank you for reading the silly ramblings of
