Do you remember on last week's 'Sunday Snippet', I mentioned that I had hayfever? Well, it turned out to be a little than that.
For the past week, I've been under the weather with a cold and sore throat. Not to look at the negative, being ill has meant that I have had plenty of time to read and I'm making good progress through Christopher Priest's novel 'The Prestige'. I'm still not sure if I am enjoying the novel as much as its film adaptation. There are a lot of unecessary details within the novel, which do not appear in the film. However, 'The Prestige' is still an interesting read.
Here's this week's snippet:
Page 126 - 'But now I return to that afternoon and evening of Clive Borden's visit to Caldlow House, and try to reconstruct what took place while we children played upstairs.'
'The Prestige'- Christopher Priest
Whatever you are doing, enjoy what's left of the weekend. The London Marathon is taking place as I type. I enjoy watching the fun runners negotiating the course wearing all sorts of crazy costumes in the name of charity, but it makes me tired just watching them.
