Can you even pronounce it?

I've been reading some books by Chris Bohajalian.  That's right.  I can't pronounce it either.

But let me go back.  I finished reading one of his books last week.  It was our next read for book club.
It was very good.  I would recommend it.  I realized after I read it, that I had read it years ago.  It's about a wintery night where a baby is born at home, with the help of a midwife, and things go very wrong.  It's set in Vermont, a place I've always wanted to visit.

When I was at the library picking up this book, there was also another by the same author, and so I grabbed that too. 

I'm in the midst of reading it now, and I'm 75% FREAKED OUT, 25% engrossed, and well, just plain intrigued.  I'm 3/4th of the way through, and even though I have an idea what might happen, I'm still not sure.
I love it.  Makes me a little scared to go to sleep some nights, but it's GREAT.  I'm warped, I know.

This mystery-unpronounceable named author has several more books I'd like to try.

These depressingly gray, rainy days have been great ones for reading.  Join me.


  1. I don't think I've seen this author's name before and the it mystery, horror...? I'll definitely look for it!

    Have a Great Evening!

  2. I think I have read all this author's books except for the Eden one. I was telling DB that I heard him speak at an author's luncheon for our library. He was very entertaining and as I recall his name is pronounced
    Bo-Ja-Hay-Len...if that helps!


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
