How We Fight for Our Lives


How much do I want to read more? 7/10

Donno. Not the one thing I'm eager to read. But I could be surprised.
It looks like the author is reading a book, and get fascinated like never before. And it looks like a erotic book. Weird.


PART ONE

Since no one has talked to him about such feelings, he does not know what they are. And yet he is drawn to them, to the dream-like quality of doing something he has never done before, yet knowing, somehow, how to do it.

The novel turned me on. I didn’t know books were capable of anything like this. Until now, I had liked reading but it was just something you did. A good thing, like drinking water on a hot day, but nothing special. Holding Another Country in my hands, I felt that the book was actually holding me.
I could walk right into the scene, take off my clothes, and join one of the couples in bed. I could taste their tongues.
