I spent a fairly good amount of time mostly reading this weekend. There were the usual chores, some furniture window-shopping and quite a bit of office work to do, but I did get halfway through two books as well.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is turning out to be quite an intriguing read. I haven't read his The Silver Linings Playbook, but I did watch the movie and not like it at all. So I have been a bit uncertain about this one. The protagonist Leonard Peacock isn't the most entertaining character to be inside of, but he does have a very interesting personality. When the book begins, he confides in us, the reader, his plan to kill one of his classmates and then commit suicide. On his way to the deed, he wants to first gift four of his friends with something to remember him by. It's turning out to be an intriguing insight into his personality.
I've also finished a few more stories from Quarantine by Rahul Mehta and so far, I like the book. The sexual orientation of the characters is really only a minor mention in some stories, whereas in others, it is a big deal. I was eager to read this book because homosexuality is a very touchy topic in India, and even that's putting it very mildly. While this book is mostly from the perspective of immigrants, it's still something.
This week, I have a few reviews I want to belt out - I have one half written and another one to write.
