tigers in red weather by liza klaussmann
i thought i would really like this, but it was a major letdown. i didn't like any of the characters, i found the storytelling style uncomfortable and distracting, and the whole book just felt perverse. nothing but dysfunction and narcissism and destruction.
" The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t" ~Mark Twain
"From every book invisible threads reach out to other books; and as the mind comes to use and control those threads the whole panorama of the world's life, past and present, becomes constantly more varied and interesting, while at the same time the mind's own powers of reflection and judgment are exercised and strengthened." ~Helen E. Haines
