My friend Nicky is my most trusted ‘book recommender’ (I know it’s not a word but it should be). So last week when she told me I had to read The Other Typist so we could talk about the ending, I downloaded it on my Kindle right away.
I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut and stumbled through the beginning of this book too. Then when I got about three quarters of the way through, I needed to finish it. Immediately. So I read the way I do on vacation. I sat on the couch for a big chunk of time and read. Then I read the way I do when I’m not on vacation. I read while cooking, while waiting for the dog to go out, while reading spelling words out loud to Katherine. And as soon as I finished reading, I called Nicky.
I can’t tell you anything about the book. I think it is best that you go in to it not really knowing the plot. And to be honest, I am not ever sure I recommend it. I am pretty annoyed at the book right now. But I do know that I want to talk to other people about the ending. So go read and come back and tell me what you think really happened.
And in the meantime, what was the last book that made you feel this way? The last book that you just had to finish and the last book that you felt a strong need to talk about once you had finished reading? Do tell because I think it going to be hard to find something to read for a bit after this one…
