Book while knitting
While knitting on my current project, I listened to Margaret Atwood's Penelopiad. I'm not educated in Greek mythology, so I think I might have missed some of the point of this book. It's the story of Penelope and Odysseus as told from Penelope's point of view. The book is witty and tragic. I recommend it.
I rented Babel on DVD. I don't know how to rate this one. I hated it - it was like swallowing bad tasting medicine; however, it was very well made and written. You have to be in the right mood to watch it... strong and not easily depressed. The story takes place in four countries: Japan, Morocco, and Mexico/USA. It's the story of people surrounding a shooting incident. The acting is very good. The story is very sad.
