New stock for my Book-rack

I worked very late today. On my way back home, I passed by the Times bookstore in KLCC. I thought I should go in and have a look.

Obviously a very wrong decision made. I ended up having the following books with me when I got out of the bookstore.

Born on a Blue Day - Daniel Tammet

The Spell - Alan Hollinghurst

After reading 'The Spot of Bother', I was very eager to read another book with gay characters. Got to know the book 'Born on a Blue Day' from Calvin's blog. So I bought the book. As for The Spell, I got to know the author after watching the short drama series 'The Line of Beauty" which the original author is Alan.

The Spell is quite difficult to read. I think maybe because the British English is always more difficult to comprehend. :p Alright, I my English is very poor. That's the true problem. In that case, I think I shall start with Born on a Blue Day first.

Looks like you made the right choice on Daniel Tammet but you should have asked me about Alan Hollinghurst's books first before purchasing it because I have quite a few of his books including the one you just bought and you're right about one thing.

He uses old British English, the real thing! Don't play play. Very serious one. So it takes time to digest if you're not used to it. It might makes you feel dizzy for not knowing what on earth are they talking about. Hahaha!!!

Well, you should start with "Born on a Blue Day", believe me, you'll be fascinated with the stuff he wrote about himself.
