Love is Blind — William Boyd


This new novel from one of my top three living novelists (John le Carré and Lorraine Adams being the other two, in case you were wondering) has put me into SlowRead©® mode.

In practice, that means that I try to move through its wonderful sentences and story as slowly as possible without (literally) losing the plot. 

I figure at 30 or so pages a day and being right now at page 86 (the book has 384 pages) I've got another week and a half of anticipation and delight.

Don't take my word for it: read the opening pages here.
