my book club decided to read hemingway’s “for whom the bell tolls.” i’m having a really hard time getting into it. it’s not really that it’s boring, it’s just the style of writing, it doesn’t captivate me, and it’s kind of depressing. i have to read 200 pages in the next two days in order to be caught up for our next meeting. i just read the part where he sleeps with the little shaved-headed war prisoner rape victim girl. and she says she wants him to because “if we do everything together, the other maybe never will have been.” i found this disturbing.
