I am currently listening to Marilynne Robinson's Gilead in the car. I have read it before, though quite hastily, and liked it. On this dvd (a Marden's [mishmash clearing house store] buy last year?), I am not crazy about the reader, but
the story, the words, the mindset, the humor, the images, the words, the words, the words.
I have that upwelling feeling that one gets when falling in love. Step two will be stopping friends in the street to tell them "listen to it, listen to it, or read it, it's wonderful". . .
So what are you waiting for? Go fall in love! And I hear there's a sequel/related book: my anticipation grows!
