April 2010 Books and Movies

Well, April clearly wasn't a month of reading and movie, watching... :)

Sushi For Beginners
Marian Keyes

I found this author through the Irish Short stories collections. It was a bit slow to start, but picked up well. I backpacked around Ireland for 5 weeks at the end of my first degree and instantly fell in love with the country and its folk. To someone not as familiar (and it's been a long time for me) with Irish dialectal slang, there are a few head scratching moments for sure. But there were lots of creative plot twists and unexpected corners, which was needed, as the book is almost 600 pages! I'm looking forward to reading more.
