What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?
(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)
Well . . . this is a tough one for me. Not quite sure why. I’m just trying to think back and decide which book best fits that category. I think I would have to say Wild Nights!, by Joyce Carol Oates, only because it was so different. She took five well known authors (Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, Henry James and Ernest Hemingway) and wrote a fictionalized short story about them–for the most part, the stories dealt with a fictionalized time of their life, or even their death, except for in the case of Emily Dickinson, which was perhaps my favorite story. If your a fan of JCO, or even if your not, this book is a great read and I highly recommend it.
What is your answer?
