#33: The Mermaid Chair
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd was a very well written book, but I morally disagreed with the storyline. Kidd told the story of a woman who was dissatisfied with her life and ends up having an affair with a monk. "What?" I can hear you saying now. First, why a monk? Second, why would Anne read this book? Well, I didn't have anything to read so I borrowed it from my friend while I was laying out at her pool and read it all afternoon. Because it was well written, it was a quick read. It just made me sad that very popular books are condoning sad middle aged womens' right to an affair to figure out their lives. And the whole monk thing was weird.
bummer. i've seen this book in numerous book shop windows. is book shop one or two words? i am not sure if i'll read it now. well, if it's a short read, maybe. i obviously need those. so...i asked a socceroo to be my myspace friend! i have been wasting the past two hours of time looking at socceroo apparel. maybe i'll get a jacket and official t-shirt. i hope italy gets pounded on tuesday!
