So Much Praise

Guess what book I’m reading? Here are some hints from the back cover: A New York Times Notable Book, Shortlisted for the 2002 Man Booker Prize, Finalist for the Organge Prize, One of Entertainment Weekly’s Top Ten Books of the Year.

I hope you guess The Night Watch by Sarah Waters. It must be hard to live up to so much praise right? I always have this compulsion to start nitpicking a book and looking for fault after so much praise. I can’t help it. Do you do that?

Well I do have high hopes for this one. I’ve enjoyed two other Sarah Waters’ novels and so far this is proving to be an interesting read.
