Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?

Confess. Cleanse my soul. Bare it for all.

Why? Who will love me if they know?

Gabriel! Forgive me. I dubbed it

  1. Oh, I love how you connected it with Garcia Marquez. On one of my first dates with my husband, we both hated the movie of “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” and we ended up calling it “The Unbearable Length of This Movie.”

  2. *hahaha* I love this! You totally just thumbed your nose at him, and I loved it. I haven’t read much of his work, but I gather he’d like your irreverent attitude. 🙂 Thanks for linking up – and being honest!


  3. This is not my favorite work by him; I don’t think I ever finished it, even as he’s my inspiration for writing along with John Steinbeck.

    I have always said Anthony Hopkins’s film version of Remains of the Day nailed the title because that was all you had left of it once it was over.


  4. Fun take on the prompt! I think good books have many dimensions, just like people, so it’s better when people have radically different opinions of them! I can’t imagine anything interesting that would be liked by everyone.


I'm excited to hear from you. Comment here! I won't let anyone bite you.
