A girl. Her dog. And books...lots of books.

The Sand Child - Tahar Ben Jelloun, Alan Sheridan started off really strong. the story was intriguing and the character's motives and interactions were fascinating. but then as the main character lost themselves - so did the whole narrative framework. I understand what the author was trying to do... with the whole idea of starting over from scratch and reinventing oneself ... but the story got lost and I lost interest. unfortunate because it was quite good for 3/4 of the novel.
