Reading: Saving Francesca

0805 Saving Francesca

Looking for Alibrandi is such a brilliant novel; Melina Marchetta writes a first person narrative of tremendous immediacy, immensely engaging.

In her second novel, Saving Francesca, she does the same, with a different character in different circumstances. Wonderful prose. Great rereading it this week (I read it when it first came out - I know people who can't read books again, but I'm not one of them).

I reread all the time. I figure you eat the same foods because you like them and books are an adventure or an experience which I love . Why not repeat it as often as possible.
