Have you ever read a book you can't get out of your mind?
Or characters that are so real you feel like they are friends.
You know what I mean?
While I am trying to read another book, my brain flashes back to the previous one.
It doesn't happen that often, but it is happening now and I am just going to have to wait it out.
A few days ago I finished reading a beautiful book,
Snow Flower and the secret fan by Lisa See.
It takes place in 19th century China when women of an upper class would have their feet bound, the smallness and shape of the feet would determine how good a marriage one would make.
While living mostly in seclusion, they developed their own secret code so they can communicate with each other, they record their messages on a silk fan, or embroider them on hankies.
It is a love story, not only between Lily and her chosen husband but mostly between Lily and her friend Snow Flower who she meets at the age of seven.
The story follows them through different stages of their lives, through happy and sad times.
It is a movie waiting to happen, I could visualize every scene and I hope some screen writer picks it up.
If you liked Memoirs of a Geisha, then you will love this book too.
I know it's not a guy book, but "hey" you guys go to the new Batman movie while
we are reading.
