Twitter hashtag: #ccspin

For Classics Spin, #19, I got #1: 

A Moveable Feast

I’m going into this with fear and trembling, and lots of conflicting feelings:

  • I really didn’t like much all the Hemingway’s books I had to read at school
  • I’m ashamed that I have not read it yet, seeing the setting!
  • So I’m relieved I FINALLY HAVE to read it
  • Because of the setting, I hope it will be good
  • BUT some Goodreads reviewers who have a love/hate relationship with the author seem to imply it’s really not worth my time…

I am curious. What do YOU think?

I have until end of January to read and review it.
It’s never too late to challenge yourself to (re)discover the classics and connect and have fun with other Classics lovers. See what this is all about.

MY REVIEW

I have been thoroughly enjoying Laura Lebow’s historical mysteries around the world of operas, see for instance Sent to the Devil. Then she got the great idea to start a new series set in France! I’m thrilled to present to you The Song Peddler of the Pont Neuf and her private detective Paul Gastebois, in this first adventure set in Paris on the eve of the French Revolution.
