Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Keturah And Lord Death - Martine Leavitt I'm surprised at how enjoyable this story was, given that it's written in a kind of older fable-esque kind of way, and also you pretty much know the end given, well, the title. But the story itself feels timeless, Keturah as a protagonist was utterly endearing and relateable (to the extent that I can relate to a hopeless romantic whose greatest wish is to marry her true love). But as much as the clich├ęd aspects of the story would usually make me roll my eyes, I didn't, because I couldn't. The story itself is just too heartwarming.
