i read "the five people you meet in heaven" today.probably a good book to read if you feel like your going no where in life. it shows how your life effects others and vise versa. it makes you feel kinda empty inside at some points, and then all warm and fuzzy at others.
i'd give it about an 8/10.very good!

Okay, so I'm reading this book called Nil. It's about an island where teenagers appear without explanation and have one year to escape, otherwise they perish. The plot is nice, and the side characters are neat, but kahchdnxnejdj. Aired fjekxm re the protagonists useless. It's split narrative, between stereotypically girly teengirl and Island Vacation Ken Doll. There is so much potential for interesting character development, but the author disappointingly drops the ball and makes blank slates who teens are supposed to project themselves onto and relate to, but it hardly makes for development. It's almost insulting, so much so that when another character speaks, you sigh in relief, now that you get a break from their incessant dullness.

I think it's worth it. I'm still not done, so I'm trying to see if anything happens. It's a great book, but that one flaw is glaring.

Reading Their Eyes Were Watching God, by Zora Neale Hurston. It's okay. If I were Janie I would have killed Joe Starks way earlier. That makes no sense taken out of context, but if you read it you might agree.
