Book Review

Chang and Eng by Darin Strauss.

I'm starting to like historical fiction. It's a nice way to get a glimpse (fictional though it may be) into the minds and lives of historical figures. The book Nefertiti was my first of the genre-and I loved it.

I enjoyed Chang and Eng as well. It wasn't the type of book I had trouble putting down, but it was enjoyable (as well as sad).

Maybe it's my age showing again, but I've discovered I (sometimes) have compassion. And this book made me sad for the twins. Though you have to admit, they had a hell of a life considering the time in which they lived.

Thanks for having read this book, and my new one, More Than It Hurts You.
Glad you liked them.
Did I email you before? (I have deja vu now.) If not, let me tell you: I used to suffer from acid reflux really bad. Have you tried Tagament? I found it worked on me.

Anyway -- big digression. Thanks again for reading mybooks.
