Going back, when I went to the bookstore, I found this pocketbook entitled Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I wouldn't have taken a second look at it if it wasn't for the author. The book was very thin and I'm usually used to reading the likes of J.K Rowling and Dan Brown, I thought I might finish this book in just one night. I was about to return it back to the rack when I decided to read the back part and the decision to buy it was apparent.
On the eve of his 90th birthday, a bachelor decides to give himself a wild night of love with a virgin. As is his habit--he has purchased hundreds of women--he asks a madam for her assistance. The 14 year old girl who is procured for him is enchanting, but exhausted as she is from caring for siblings and her job sewing buttons, she can do little but sleep. Yet with this sleeping beauty at his side, it is he who awakens to a romance he has never known..
|I thought the book was elegant and disturbing at the same time.|
On the other hand, I also bought a book that I thought would help me learn a lot about being a fashion designer. I've always been fascinated on how designers go about researching and brainstorming to the nitty gritty details of their designs. One can always dream they say, and well, that has always been my dream. I so hope this book is worth it.
