  1. Ashkapash Says:

    Were these ‘must reads’? what’s this list? Cause persoanlly I hated ‘The ground beneath her feet’. Got to 60 pages to the end and just couldn’t anymore. Just gave up…

  2. Wena Says:

    I supposed seeing the movie doesn’t count. I couldn’t get into “Love in the Time of Cholera”. (I haven’t see the movie either, but I did finger the box at my DVD store last night.)
