“Brick Lane” by Monica Ali has the prettiest cover art I’ve ever seen. The book was ok. It’s a story contrasting the lives of two sisters, one in Bangladesh & one in London. The 369 pages was worth it just because of several really great quotes I got for my quote book. They are the kind of quotes that make me want to go start a relationship & then break it off abruptly just so I can use some really good break up lines. My feelings about this book were so volatile that I had to introduce a ranking. Somehow I didn’t think that “the book was ok”, was truly getting my point across. Especially since I love most of the books I read. Introducing the new ranking system…pop tarts. For copyright purposes I should probably call them toaster pastries. Introducing the new ranking system…toaster pastries. “Brick Lane” scored 3.5 out of 5 toaster pastries. They are chocolate strawberry poptarts which to my knowledge don’t exist, but the actual pop tart color looked like a band-aid. I’ll try to go back & add poptarts to all the other books from “Rory’s book club”. If anyone else has read this book I would love to hear your thoughts.
