How well-read are you ?? ......TAG
Reflections has very kindly rescued me with this TAG

The Rules are as follows:

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.

2) Italicize those you intend to read.

3) Underline the books you really love (and strikethrough the ones you hate!).

4) Reprint this list in your own blog.

at the risk of sounding argumentative, I wud say that its not prosaic, boring, but very interesting, once u get into the flow of reading, his style is very descriptive of everything:) I liked his other one also Two Lives.
