Read this book. Seriously, if you are a woman and haven't read this book, you should. It wouldn't hurt men either. It's such an eye-opener to the theme beauty and how it's not at all as it's usually percieved. The book is almost 20 years old, but it's still current and important.
I usually only review books that are available in English language, but this one was so interesting I decided to write a few lines even though it's apparently only available in German, Italian and maybe Portuguese... let me know if you find it in English.
It's called "Das 11-Minuten-Mädchen" which means "The eleven minutes girl", written by Sonia, who goes by the artist name Mariana Brazil.
Finally a book review again! I have been reading a lot, but mostly German books where I dodn't know if there's an English translation available or not. This book I know is originally in English, so even though I read it in German I can blog about it in English.
It's been a long time since my last book review. Not that I wouldn't have read in the meantime, but somehow nothing inspired me to write a review. Now this book I read, no - devoured, gets me back on the writing track. I read it in a few weeks, but remember it was in German and has over 600 pages.
Even though this posting is called Knitting, it is a book review. The title of the book just happens to be Knitting . It's written by Anne Bartlett, and is her first novel. One can notice that when reading the book.
The latest fantasy book I read was Fortress in the eye of time by C. J. Cherryh, which I finished this weekend. It's a story about wizards and their creations in a time when wizardry is not very highly regarded.
