I finished this last night. As opposed to most of the books in my collection which I got used, this one I picked up new at Barnes and Noble about a year ago. It’s the third book I’ve read by Aldous Huxley, after Brave New World and Point Counter Point, and while I didn’t think it’s as good as those two, I still really enjoyed it. The style, which involves bouncing back and forth between various points in time in the narrative, spinning them around as if they were in a blender till we finally get one cohesive story, lends itself more to a one or two day sitting over a quiet weekend than a month-long fit it in in my spare time kind of reading, but it’s still worth checking out if you’ve read the other two Huxley books I mentioned above.
This book is special for another reason as well: it’s my last book as a non-married man, as I’m getting married this Sunday. Jen and I are spending tonight in the city, then heading off tomorrow up to Maine to have the ceremony up there. I’m so happy and so lucky to have her in my life, and can’t thank this Tumblr site enough for bringing the two of us together. When we go into the city today, we’re going to stop at Book Traders, which, in the fiction section on the second floor, is where we shared our first kiss not quite a year ago. I can’t believe it’s happening, it doesn’t always feel real, but it’s so nice too and neither of us can wait for Sunday!
