So, how come I am the only person out there who didn't particularly like the novel, Atonement by Ian McEwan. I just couldn't connect with even one character and as a result, I could never lose myself to it and frequently became bored throughout.

A few weeks ago, I finished My Antonia by Willa Cather. I think I may have read it or skimmed it in high school, but this was the first time I read it through and I loved it. Every once in a while I pick up a book in which I am reminded of why I love words and how beautiful they can be when put in the hands of someone as talented as Cather. My Antonia was definitely it for me.

If you love a talented wordsmith, I highly recommend Pat Conroy's "The Prince of Tides". Really intense story, but some of the most beautiful writing I've ever seen. Oh, and if you saw the movie, ignore it--the book is leagues better. ;)
