I’m in Total Awe

Standard

This afternoon, I finished reading Empire Falls by Richard Russo. Wow. I’m going to write an in-depth review as soon as I soak it all in, but I just have to say what an incredible book this is. The thought that kept going through my mind is: “I want to write something this good, but how will I do this? Can I actually do this?” It’s exciting and challenging and mind-boggling and exhausting to think about all at the same time.

While I realize this won’t live up to the book, I have put the Empire Falls miniseries DVD on my NetFlix list. I know a great cast is involved, and it won some awards. I’m anxious to see what the makers did with it.

  1. Another book to add to my reading list (this list grows weekly, because I can’t read as fast as I find books, nor do I have the time to read as much as I like)!!

    I’ll definitely add it though if it gets such high praise!
