|Nellie Olsen Again Unimpressed With Weighty Books|
We've been struggling to finish this one for months. Listening to us trying to pronounce these names for each other became almost farcical and was a better exercise in patience and understanding than any couples counseling session could ever be. It was my choice for an oral co-read. Ken's staying with me through it I think says something about his commitment to me. Either that or he's too confused to leave now. He's chosen To Kill A Mockingbird for our next co-read. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to pronounce those names.
And now, perversely, after I've said all that, let me admit that I am seriously considering starting the novel over on my own, because I feel like I missed too much that I should have caught and considered. Don't analyze me; it won't get you anywhere. Talk about down a rabbit hole, sheesh.
