XX. "The Conservationist" - Nadine Gordimer
Perhaps I'm glum or perhaps I'm feeling dried up, but my eyes would slide shut after each page. I've gotten more naps in the past two days than in a month.
I won't blame the writing because it's beautiful in its spare simplicity. I can't blame the plot because it seemed interesting, and the characters can't be blamed because I just didn't get far enough to know them.
So I'll blame the nasty fever my son gave me and put this back on the to-be-read-at-a-later-date stand.
