When we were young

"I divide my life into two parts, not really a Before and After, more as if they are bookends, holding together flaccid years of empty musings, years of the late adolescent or the twentysomething whose coat of adulthood simply does not fit."

- from When God Was A Rabbit by Sarah Winman.

A big thank-you to the Book Florist for this quote. And cheers to all those out there like us! :)

Have you read this book? Is it any good? I like that "or the late twentysomething whose coat of adulthood simple does not fit" part. Hee

Deep Fried, I know! :)

Arumugam, I'm done with nearly half of it. I've had a most interesting week where I've bumped into a couple of people and they've just magically handed me awesome books, one book was actually a play and one friend just handed me the ticket to a play this evening. So I'm gonna write a humongous post about all four of them! :)
