You’re so moody Jonathan Pine

I refuse to write any more reviews until I manage to finish The Night Manager by John Le Carre, it’s taking me forever to read it. I managed to read Everything I Never Told you by Celeste Ng in a matter of hours, an immersive, heartbreaking story, I’ve been reading le Carre for weeks.

Am I drawn to books that are easier to read and have an instant emotional pay off? Sometimes I think I am, the longer or harder the book the more likely I am to assess the time it will take me to get through it based on what I could read in that time. Like an addict wanting a quick hit rather than some quality cut literature.

 

But no more brain! From this day forward you will be patient (mostly) and spend longer enjoying a good book. Deadlines be damed.

 

Oh, and Pine is incredibly moody.

  1. When I start worrying about needing a quick hit more than a truly satisfying reading experience, I try to schedule myself some uninterrupted reading time. This weekend I had four hours to kill and read a doorstopper of a book about that guy who killed all those Labour Party kids in Norway? The book was really sad, but I finished it and felt better about my attention span. :p

    I WANT TO READ THE NIGHT MANAGER, also. And I *super* want to see the new adaptation of it.

    1. That’s a very good idea. I think my addiction to certain TV shows at the moment is distracting me as well. Plus it’s not a book you can read and suddenly have a random day dream, too much is going on.

      I want to see the adaptation as well, once I get through the book it’s next to watch. (After Trapped and the rest of DS9.)
