Must be good right? If the whole lady population is reading it?!
I haven't gotten very far yet, but my friend got ahead of me yesterday and asked me "had I gotten to __________ part yet?"
Talk about spoiler alert!
So, not one to be left behind I decided to sneak a read in the afternoon. Because when I try to read in bed at night, this is what happens:
He takes after me...
So I gave the boys a cardboard box, allowed the six year old to use my Sharpies appropriately, and I snuck off to a corner with a cuppa to catch up to my friend in the book.
And here is what they created:
Yes, this is a mega awesome SPACE BOAT. And no the permanent marker has not yet come off in the bath.
The control panel WITH air-conditioning AND
This Space Boat also features windows, imaginary seat belts and a food storage compartment.
It's ok for the boys, but my backside is too wide for full on sitting down, so I have to crouch down. That would be my only complaint.
Not too bad considering:-)
So all in all, I think we all got some "mind-enhancing" stuff done.
To my Mother and other innocents who believe me to be as well; I would like to point out that I am reading this book PURELY to be culturally aware.
And I do NOT necessarily recommend it, although it is quite funny.
It does annoy my Hubby with all the eye-rolling, guffawing and "for goodness sake-ing" that goes on when I read it.
I think that he is worried that I will find fault in our own relationship.
For example, I discovered that when our fingers touch, there is no "electrical current" that passes through us- as it does to the characters in the book.
That can't be right.
That can't be right.
I tried giving him a penetrating gaze, and he told me that I was being weird.
Maybe I should try "biting my lip" and he should start playing sad songs on the piano...
I know that he secretly wants to read it too, but would be too embarrassed because of it's stigma.
Oh yeah, and apparently there is a double standard going on, because I wouldn't "allow" him to read that kind of book. Which is kind of true.
Ok, seriously- it's an easy read, and addictive because I want to know what everyone else is talking about. But I can't see why it's that big of a deal.
For me I think it will be the same as Twilight, Harry Potter and the Hunger Games; happy to read the first in the series to be "in-the-know", but giving up when it comes to the sequels.
There is my little book review so far!
Probably to be continued...
