i should probably read curious tale of the dog in the night or whatever.
lets do this
you fannying east tonight breddo?
only the first chapter thumbed.
i realise this is not what you were asking and I am the only person in the world who doesn't get Garcia Marquez.
wait a darn second, I DO have a copy. What do you want to swap for it?
The hyper-exaggerated (?) style gets tedious after the first half.
There that should do it.
If Chuckles Allcock beats you to it, feel free to swap another
ZOMGOSH DIS BOOKSWAP!
arrrgh oh you know what I mean!
( whispers) Love in the time of cholera was also shit.
But I left it at my parent's cos it was too boring.
and read Hopscotch instead.
Cortazar is betterbetterbetterbetterbetterbetterbetter. I think I blame Garcia Marquez a little bit for so many LatAm novelists not getting the recognition they deserve.
Then finish Solitude later. It's great, don't get me wrong, but it can wait.
he's raised the profile of south american writing abroad much more than anyone else. although i dont really like his books much so hmmm.
i can't wait to go there :)
somewhere that's 20 minutes walk from your house?
why havent you been there?
One of 'em will be reading it - look over her shoulder
I'd have to catch the same bus for quite a little while and the girl would get worried, quite rightly so
plus the bus fares would probably end up costing more than buying the book again.
It's just not really realistic, I'm sorry.
