Now, there's no other novel I call my favorite book but Captain Corelli's Mandolin. I love it so much that I even made it a point to make my review of the novel as the first post for this blog. I love its long, sweeping story, the style of writing, and it just captured my wholehearted interest and my imagination. Just leave the film version alone. I hated it and, most of all, Louis de Bernières himself hated it. I've been a fan of Louis de Bernières since then, and have searched long and hard to get my hands on his other novels. I got a hardbound copy of Red Dog last year from China, and I was so happy to get it for free. When Booksale opened in NCCC Mall, I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I happened to see a hardcover edition of Birds Without Wings. I thought that I would have an insanely difficult time finding the few remaining novels. But what do you know! Voilà! His first three novels just arrived from England yesterday morning.
Mr. Postman delivers !
I couldn't wait to open it up and devour the contents. I am absolutely happy and giddy with excitement. When I'm happy and giddy with excitement I jump around, giggle to myself, and go 'omgyay!' all over the place. I present to you the books that I've been waiting for 2 painful months!
I am lucky, lucky, lucky.
