Today something a bit different. I'll talk a bit about the book I'm currently reading. So far I like it, but I will save my final judgement until I reach that final page. When will that be exactly, I'm not sure because this is one of those + 1000 pages and free time made itself scarce lately. This is actually my first novel by Rosaminde Pilcher. She is a British author of impressive 28 novels as well as several short stories. What kind of book is this? It is a historical romance novel, set in WW2 Britian, that follows the life story of certain Judith. Apparently there is also a British TV serial where the young protagonist Judith is played by Keira Knightly ( I just googled it, filmed back in 1998, only 3 years after the novel was originally published). What else to say? I don't usually read romance novel, but I heard this one was really good, so I'm giving it a try. So far, so good.
Danas nešto malo drukčije, knjiga koju trenutno čitam i zasada mi se sviđa, mada sačuvati ću konačan sud za kada je pročitam. Kada će to biti ne znam jer ima više od tisuću stranica. Ovo je zapravo moj prvi roman Rosaminde Pilcher. Ona je britanska autorica impresivnih 28 romana kao i nekoliko kratkih priča. Ovo je zapravo prvi njen roman koji čitam. Ona je britanska autorica impresivnih 28 romana kao i nekoliko kratkih priča. Kakva je ovo knjiga? To je povijesni ljubavni roman, smješten u Englesku u razdoblju drugoga svjetskoga rata, koja prati životnu put izvjesne Judith. Izgleda da ima i britanski TV serijal u kojem mladu Judith glumi Keira Knightly ( to sam upravo proguglala, sniman je 1998. samo tri godine nakon što je izdan roman). Što još kazati? Obično ne čitam ljubiće, ali čula sam da je ovaj zapravo nešto više pa mu dajem priliku. Zasada nije loše.
“Alone. She realized how much she had missed the luxury of solitude, and knew that its occasional comfort would always be essential to her. The pleasure of being on one's own was not so much spiritual as sensuous, like wearing silk, or swimming without a bathing suit, or walking along a totally empty beach with the sun on your back. One was restored by solitude. Refreshed.” ― Rosamunde Pilcher,
“She yawned and stretched, and settled back again on her pillows and thought how perfect it would be if sleep could not only restore one but iron out all anxieties in the same process, so that one could wake with a totally clear and untroubled mind, as smooth and empty as a beach, washed and ironed by the outgoing tide.” ― Rosamunde Pilcher,
