Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

The Red Pony - John Steinbeck, John Seelye When I picked this one up I had no idea of what it was about...except perhaps that it involved a red pony. Now that I have finished it, I am still not entirely sure that I understand on a cognitive level what it was about in total. It is the kind of book that demands to be reread. There is a lot of emotion in these pages--a lot of feelings that welled up inside of me as I read it: sadness, anger, disappointment, longing, hope, and a desire for open spaces, far off mountains and the smell of wild sage. While the chapters in this novella are related, there is a loose fitting quality to them that almost makes me think of a short story collection. I must say, Steinbeck has me intrigued.
