Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.Leonard Cohen from ’Anthem’
A busy exciting day here at North of 43, mostly doing stuff I don’t usually do. See, it doesn’t take WHOOOOO WHOOO make life exciting around here.
And when I got home, showered after lots of physical work, went off to Crabby Joe’s for a hamburger and a beer, I kept thinking about this being my day to blog. You know because Judith and I alternate days.
Problem is that one of the books I have on the go, one that I have read by real book, ebook, and today audio book is one of my favourites and I just couldn’t put it down. Uh, or off.
Any way the book is:
Now I am, as you may know an ardent Louise Penny fan.
Not just of her writing but of her as a person. We are best friends. Okay, maybe she doesn’t know about it but we are. I think we are like peas in a pod, but it is doubtful anyone else would agree, but the thought makes me happy so…
How the Light Gets In is the ninth of eighteen Gamache books and my favourite. There will be eighteen when her new one A World of Curiosities comes out in November. I also liked her State of Terror she wrote with Hillary Clinton, but Three Pines definitely has my heart.
This book has it all for me. Suspense, love, flawed humans not cast out or cancelled. It speaks to me on a very personal level. Please note: having read a book does not decrease in anyway the suspense for me. Go figure.
So here it is, after 10, or 2200 hours and I have just finished the book yet again, and of course I had to talk about it. Except I am very tired. So no more talking for me, but you might want to give the book a read.
So goodnight from here at North of 43, just another flawed human striving. Hmmmm striving for what I wonder? Oh Oh. I will ponder that for a bit.
