hey there, what did you think of this novel? I ended up really liking it... I like how MacEwan is writing more novella type-stuff now. I think it's a good approach for him because his stories can tend to drag...

Also, I like your blog. I just started a book review blog myself (jane on a high horse). I'd appreciate your comments if you get a chance to stop by.

Keep 'em coming! (your review of "a long way gone" makes me excited to read it - I've been sitting on a copy for almost a year now but it's been bumped to the top of the list)
