Readathon Status #1 + mini-review

We're 40 minutes into the #readathon and I've just finished my first book!

I started out with an easy quick read - Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx. I never liked the film much (way too loooong), and while the book was a bit... weird, it was far better. At only 58 pages it manages to convey a whole lot of (suppressed) emotions and portray forbidden lust/love in a land and time that would kill you for such things. The book could easily have been longer, the whole story, particular the start, is very rushed, but overall it's a decent book and a quick read.

    1. Jeg var også vildt overrasket over længden og måtte researche længe før jeg accepterede at det ikke bare var en easy reader version (er helt ærlig stadig betænkelig, men den er god nok). Hvis du kunne lide filmen, er bogen helt klart et must :)

      I lige måde! :D
