33. Good Behaviour - Molly Keane...
Play.com and the back of the book says:
'I do know how to behave - believe me, because I know. I have always known...' Behind the gates of Temple Alice the aristocratic Anglo-Irish St Charles family sinks into a state of decaying grace. To Aroon St Charles, large and unlovely daughter of the house, the fierce forces of sex, money, jealousy and love seem locked out by the ritual patterns of good behaviour. But crumbling codes of conduct cannot hope to save the members of the St Charles family from their own unruly and inadmissible desires. This elegant and allusive novel established Molly Keane as the natural successor to Jean Rhys.

This was a wonderful book, a really really good and really really amazing read. It perfectly captured the age it was set in and what went on in that kind of social class, and the degradation of that class. it was very easy to read as well...i've been meaning to read this sice i was about 17 and am really glad i did, it was very like the style of evelyn waugh by different...wonderful, would definately recommend it...
not sure what to read next... will have to go home and look at my enormous pile of books which never seems to actually shrink!!

can anyone find me a copy of this book for less than $118?? I've looked on amazon, ebay, half.com, and halfpricebooks.com and none of them have it for less than that.

any other book order websites that someone can recommend? i want to use this book toward a paper and it sounds fascinating.
:)

Subject:Rebels of Ireland - Edward Rutherfurd
Time:02:24 pm
Ok, I know this isn't the book we're supposed to be reading. But I read it and I feel like sharing.

I just finished reading The Rebels of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd.

I've got some quotes with famous names in them.
Just quotes under the cut. quotes are spoilersCollapse )

I love the way Rutherfurd tied in the different beliefs and occupations of each generation with the family bloodlines that he follows through both books.

Ok, I just loved the book. I'm not very good at discussing it.

Subject:The Once and Future King and The Mists of Avalon
Time:03:46 pm
I know that The Once and Future King was last month's book, but I only just finished it. I chose to read The Once and Future King by T.H. White and The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley at the same time, because I wanted to be able to compare the male and female point of views of the King Aurther legend that each represents.

Thanks!
