Currently Reading: A Little Life

Never has a book taken me so long to read, I’m not even sure if I like it yet.

It’s a strange position to be in as a reader. I don’t want to stop reading because I need to know what happens, but at the same time I don’t want to know. A Little Life is so well written, so intelligent, and I wish I cared as much as I did with A Secret History. As much as I love Donna Tartt, A Little Life surpasses it in the quality of prose.

I have a feeling this book is going to blow my mind, and I’ll never want to read it again.

‘”Video, ergo est,” said Laurence, suddenly. I see therefore it is. He smiled. “And that’s exactly what applied math is. But pure math is more”-he thought again-“Imaginor, ergo est.”

I never been so in love with prose.

  1. I started it but got side-tracked. I don’t think I was as impressed with the narrative as other people seem to be. I liked the writing, but I don’t know if I want to spend so much time with those characters.
