I got to admit that most of the time I read books because of their story line. After all when deciding which book to purchase, we only can rely on the sypnosis lying somewhere in the book.
However, when a book reaches my hand, I seldom neglect it merely because the sypnosis isn't that intriguing.
So, when my sister gave me this book - The Sum of Our Days by Isabel Allende, I read it with an open mind.
And for once, I must say the plot isn't anything to shout about but Allende writes in the most poignant way, making me sad when I reached the last page.
And becuase I am not reading to chase the plot, I read each word patiently. I let the words roll in my head. New words stick to my mind as I commit them to memory of usage.
And the way she ends is very much how I love to end all my stories as well. Rounded.
So, next time you see a book by Allende, do pick it up for a read. I felt so much more enriched in my word bank and so much more in touch with emotions before this undescribable.
Can't wait to buy more of her books.....
