a few lines, as soon as i read them, reminded me of R, a perfect description of him:
I had decided to allow no room in the universe for something which shamed and frightened me. I succeeded very well--by not looking at the universe, by not looking at myself, by remaining, in effect, in constant motion.R was one for constant motion and i think sustained it because he can't, or at least couldn't, handle quiet and self-reflection.
But enough about exes. I loved this book. Loved it. Written in 1956, it is relevant to any one who has wondered about their place in the world, about how to become yourself, about how to be true to others.
So i give this one a 7. Read it! it's only 250 pages. This counts for my personal challenge and for the TBR section for Bart's 2010 Challlenge.
