I guess I need to read more...
I read this caucasia book. I guess I should read more often because many of you liked this book, which is fine, but it feel like I'm missing out on something. The book wasn't bad but when I recall on what has happend throught the story I can't really think of anything I liked about this book. Sure, at least it was a normal story, and Birdie meating up with cole was as heart warming as ever but that dosn't make this a good story. Maybe I'm just not considering the themes and how they relate to my own life, but how do the themes relate to the book. I relieze the question sounds stupid but they mentioned hair fifty times in that book, so what? They mentioned music a lot, ok. They said the word invisible a lot, probably because birdie... felt... invisible... being two different races... .... I really have no idea. I guess this all goes back to me complaining about close reading, but I don't know if I should of been complaining because now that I think about it, the short stories were better than this book, why? Because Cacausia is just a very long short story. Nothing really happens and all it has is a few intersting scenes and a subtle message, it has both of the short story charactoristics. Again, I guess I should read more, because unlike some people who can appreciate these things, I really can't.
