Thinks by David Lodge
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016
I suppose that’s why people read novels…To find out what goes on in other people’s heads.
This is a novel about the discussion of consciousness. The things we think, the way we think, etc. It alternates between 2 individuals, a gentleman recording his thoughts via voice recorder, and bestelling author Helen, who was recently widowed. And how they become entangled in an akward affair.
This book was okay. It was a bit over the top with the scientific side of things, but for the most part an enjoyable read.
A journal is a kind of mirror in which you look at yourself everyday, candidly, unflinchingly-without the protective guise of a mask, without even the flattery of makeup- and tell yourself the truth.
