Exhausted.

Today I felt a wave of exhaustion, so strong it took me by surprise. I didn’t know what to do, whether to lie down and go to sleep or just curl up into myself and cry.

It creeped up on me slowly, stealthily; I never even noticed. Waking up every day, with a heavy heart and dull feeling seemed like a routine. Slogging through the day, trying my damnest to smile was hard, so hard. I put it all down to life.

Yet this exhaustion, it made my bones hurt, it made my chest heavy. My eyelids dropped and my feet ached. Soles withered treading the path of life.

But it goes on, this thing called world. The earth goes round and Time moves on. I can only hope that one day, when I wake up, this exhaustion will be gone. The dreary morning will be replaced by feelings of joy which will make it easier to get up every morning .

Gone Girl Review

Title: Gone Girl

Author: Gillian Flynn 

Genre: Contemporary thriller

Summary (From Goodreads) 

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media–as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents–the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter–but is he really a killer?¬†
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

My Review:

I started Gone Girl after hearing glowing recommendations about it from my friend. What the end result was me, feeling a little sick after having read it. 

This is a book woman who goes missing, and her husband is the prime suspect. Mainstream enough. But no, this is a book about a deranged bitch (Sorry for the language) who goes missing and her equally psychotic husband being the prime suspect through a series clues planned by someone who wants him to suffer.
It’s a narrative by two different people, Nick and Amy (the husband and wife people) and it gives us a look in their seriously twisted mind.
The books at places just grips you by the hair and sometimes just makes you want to throw it far far away, right into the fire.
The writing is great. The workings of the minds of both Nick and Amy have been fabulously written about, great detail. The characters of everyone involves is beautiful. It is just the story leaves me with a foul taste in my mouth. Recommended for anyone who loves a good thriller.
MY RATING: 2.5 ūüĆü

 

What I Thought: Friday Night Lights

TV SHOW REVIEW: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS 

 

I recently started watching ‘Friday Night Lights’ and to say that show surprised me would be an understatement.

I have always been a fan of the tv series “One Tree Hill’ and these two share a lot of same themes ‘sport centered, based in a small town’ tv shows. but that is where the similarity ends.

OTH is streamlined for the young audience, it is a light show. On the other hand, FNL is a show of amazing depth. It deals with various issues withing the show, depicting them with a seriousness and clarity that is wonderful. At the same time it manages to out a smile on your face.

Recommended to people who like serious shows with a dash of lightness.
