For the last two weeks I have been reading, "Breathing Lessons," by Anne Tylor. This book talks about a married couple's life and how they view little everyday events that happen. Feelings of the Morans marriage sucks the reader into own life and individual thoughts. Anne Tylor takes you the lets your feelings become involved when reading this 324 pgae book. This book starts around the 80's in Balitmore. it's a small town where everyone seems to be involved in everybody else's life. Maggie and her husband, Ira, have been married for around 20 years or so. Each have thier different ways of thinking. They argue everyday like most couples do, but as they argue, the reader finds themselves taking sides on who is right. Little everyday words are taken in as the reader reads and strikes a different meaning. "Ah, God, I have been stuck with these people all my life. and I'm never going to be free." Pg. 165 Frases so often spoken by ourselves, but never seem to love what we have around ourselves. We as people don't realize enough with our busy life. The cover of this book illisrates a flying bird over a green plain. The only thing a person could think of when seeing this cover is to think of being free from life's pressures. To once in life, take a step back from our busy sheldules and enjoy life. This book to me wasn't the best book I have ever read because I think this book was written for adults. I am a teen and wouldn't recommend it to other teens. I couldn't relate much and the story to me was a bit boring. Little flashbacks and car trips only made this reading process longer.
