I have given up on reading Lisey’s Story. I just can’t get into the story. Oh I’ve tried because I spent 20 bucks on the book, but it is time now to reclaim my life and move onto better books. At the book store, the clerk enthusiastically recommended The Kite Runner. She says that they (her fellow clerks) read four or five books a week. They read The Kite Runner fifteen months ago and they have yet to find a better book. Well, how’s that for a recommendation, heh? And, four chapters in, I say so far so good.
