What Are You Reading Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Its A Reading Thing. All you need to do to participate is open the book that you are currently reading to page 34. If you have an ebook, go to 34% and answer the following 3 questions:
1. What’s the name of your current read?
2. Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your ebook and share a complete sentence (or two)?
3. Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
Feel free to leave a link to your (What Are You Reading Wednesday) post in my comments section. I would love to read your answers!
The Road by Cormac Mc Carthy
There was a sharp crack from somewhere on the mountain. Then another. It’s just a tree falling, he said. It’s okay. The boy was looking at the dead road-side trees. It’s okay, the man said. All the trees in the world are going to fall sooner or later. But not on us. How do you know? I just know.
Would I like to exist in this world? Definitely not. Besides the fact that it’s bleak, depressing and dangerous in this world, I actually don’t know whats going on or where they are going. Obviously they are running from something and have a destination in mind but apart from that everything else is a mystery and the author is leaving us guessing. I just hope that by the end there are answers.
