Hmmm so I am the Hungry Reader. The one who reads. The one who is constantly reading or wanting to read constantly. This blog is all about the books I have read, the ones that I am reading and gems that I plan to read in the future or whenever it arrives.
Maureen is a heartbreaking story of a mother, a dead child and how some losses can never be overcome from. Grief that then exists, never leaves. I was shivering while reading it and still reeling from it. Majka knows how to string minimum words with maximum imapct. Maureen’s imagery and loss has been described so well, that you would want to reread it. I know I will.
The story read on the 13th of January 2017 was “Cockcrow” by Maupassant. I remember reading him in school and enjoying his stories a lot. Sadly, I did not like this one. It was a love triangle and while the description was marvellous, the ending left me high and dry and not satisfied at all. I mean, I wish there was more to this tale.
