30 Day Book Meme:
Day 01 – The best book you read last year: The Constant Gardener by John LeCarré

I wanted to read the book before I watched the movie, so last year I finally had time and I loved it. It has everything you would look for in a book plus there is a strong social criticism. The Constant Gardener is a book that will open your eyes as you read it, not only about the situation in Africa but also about love and emotions in general (it is what I would call a quest).  This is one of those life-changing books!

    I’ve never read this book. I’ll keep an eye out for it. I think I’d like to read more stuff on Africa since The Poisonwood Bible has given me a taste for it!

    Btw, this is an interesting meme!…I’ve seen it around. Am still considering doing it.:)

      Hi, Risa! It’s a long one but 100% worthy and way better than the film, although Rachel Weisz is great on it.

      I’ve heard a lot about The Poisoned Bible but haven’t decided yet whether to add it to my TBR list or not!

        I haven’t watched the film either, I’m afraid. I’m not much of a movie person so I tend to miss out stuff like this.

        I think The Poisonwood Bible is worth it! I love the way Kingsolver writes. I’m looking forward to borrowing her Prodigal Summer from my best friend…:D
