This is the final week of ReBooWee (Read a Book a Week). What book did you read last week? I read The Time Traveler's Wife. It actually took me two weeks to get through it and I think that is because this book is literary fiction.
I have heard that term "literary fiction" before but never grasped what it truly meant until now. The Time Traveler's Wife is definitely a literary piece. The pace seemed slower, the language fuller and the descriptions more lengthy. I found I wanted to savor it more and let the language, story and characters cover me like a blanket. This book, and I believe other literary works, are more character driven.
Page-turning stories like Dan Brown or John Grisham are definitely plot driven. They are hard to put down and great to spend a weekend with.
I know my goal was to read one book a week, but I have to admit, it was nice to slow down a little and get lost in the language of The Time Travelers Wife.
What kind of book did you read last week? Did you enjoy it?
