"Beela. Zoosh. The computer is busy. Life is reduced to a palette of sound effects."
Although I thought the book started a bit slow, when I got to these lines, I perked up. I love poetry of words and I felt it coming here. I was not disappointed. Just finished Day 2 of this Online Book offering and I'm enjoying the words and phrasing. And loved the inane conversation as they sat watching tv discussing chicken supper! It's easy to imagine the unsaid words behind each comment.
This seems to be my Multiples Week. Last week, here at the library where I work, I was talking with a nanny caring for twins. As she walked away, another woman started talking to me...a mother of quadruplets. Now I get to read about twins. If I wasn't past the age of childbirth, this would all scare me!
