BTT is a long running bookish meme. To join in pop over and read the 100's of interesting comments. This week's question ...
What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?
I’ve never thought about this before, usually I’m more focused on what can I get out of a re-read that I missed the first time. The first book the comes to mind is The Booktheif . Zusak’s brilliant turn of phrase and imagery to die for (bit of a pun there) is so refreshingly different that it blew me away and I’d like to have that feeling again although it’s so good I’d probably come at it for a re-read and still be blown away.
If I was into who-dun-its then I suppose reading Christies’ The Murder of Roger Ackroyd would be a good one to read again for the first time.
I totally did not see that ending coming and I will never completely trust a narrator ever again. I’m not a fan of the genre, I find it a bit too formulaic.
I would like to read LOTR with fresh eyes though. It was such a great experience being in Middle Earth for the first time, ah but then it’s always good to go back – & I can always pretend I don’t know who Strider is!
