I am an avid reader. Granted having 2 small boys makes it difficult to get as much reading in as I would like, but nonetheless, I do read every day. I accomplished my goal in 2012 of reading two books per month - woohoo! My goal for 2013 is to try to read 28 books. I'd like to share my love of reading with anyone else who loves to read so this is my attempt to do so. Here's what I'm reading now:
Here's the official blurb about the book:
In this deeply observed, excruciatingly blunt novel, Olga, a middle-aged wife and mother, is plunged into a breakdown after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. Her anguish is expressed through obscenity and violence, as she neglects her children and day-to-day responsibilities to obsess over what sexual acts her husband and his lover might be performing. Olga's rage and self-pity threaten to turn her into something of a monster; when she hears her daughter crying for her, she thinks, "But why should I hurry? I discovered with remorse that, if the child needed me, I felt no need of her." Still, Ferrante knows just when to let up, and the redemptive note struck by the ending is a welcome reprieve.
All books I read are for my enjoyment only. I am not being paid to read these books nor have they been provided to me for free by any one or any company.
