Book Review of the Month 3- Her Fearful Symmetry

I have wanted to read this book for a while now and I asked this as a gift for Christmas. I had previously read The Time Travellers Wife so was interested in what Audrey Niffenegger's next novel would be like.

Her Fearful Symmetry is a dark, yet beautifully written ghost story dealing with the relationships of a range of different characters, set amongst the setting of Highgate Cemetery. It is ultimately a love story, addressing the power of love from beyond the grave, and as the magazine Elle states on the back cover of the book " There may be ghosts, but it's human stories that glitter".

I enjoyed this book and like the Time Travellers Wife, was a book that I couldn't put down, hence it has only taken me a couple of days to read.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good ghost story (though it wasn't too spooky) and anyone who wants an orginal love story without the mush.

Good Evening from Pickle Land

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…
