I have just finished reading The Opium Clerk by Kanul Basu.
I didn't mind this book but I'm glad to be done with it. I think it was very well written but I had a hard time following the storyline, which is rare for me. If you have an appreciation for time period novels, India, or the opium trade, I'd say give it a go. Other than that, don't waste you time.
And that's really all I have to say about it!
My next book to read is:
I'm a little nervous as I know it's going to be an emotional read. If you haven't heard of this book before it is the memoir of Elie Wiesel's experience in a Nazi death camp, his survival, and his grappling with how this could be allowed to happen. (I'm sure I'll be able to come up with a more eloquent summation after I'm done!)
Here's to reading and sticking to your commitments! I have yet to buy a book yet and have officially crossed 3 off my list.
This is getting hard.
