Night all Night!

Well I finished Night in one sitting. I think I was too scared to put it down, because the prospect of having to read it again in the morning was just too much.

Seriously, read this book. It's terrible in a good way. By that I mean it's a good book, but the subject matter is literally terrible. (I've read a lot of books that are terrible in a good way come to think of it. An Ordinary Man, Speak Rwanda, There's No Me Without You. Check them out!)

So I guess I'll be moving on! I've found that I've been alternating between fiction and non-fiction and I also want to read something as unemotionally involving as possible so I've chosen:

To be honest I don't know much about this book. I picked it up at a thrift store for a quarter because the synopsis sounded good. One first impression that I do gain from this it has "genre confusion" issues. Is it a children's book? Is it young adult? Is it adult with a child for the main character? Who knows? Other than that, I know that Frederic Durbin is a fantasy-horror writer. It makes me a bit hesitant to pick it as I just read the ultimate horror story, but I think it will be ok.

I hope.

Woo hoo! I just remembered that I have your Perpetua book. I have a goal to read it before I see you next. Which we need to make a plan for. :)
