Friday 56... Among Others

I've been reading Among Others, Jo Walton, so far it's very good, here is my little sample...

At home I walked through a haze of belongings that knew, at least vaguely, who they belonged to.  Grampar's chair resented anyone else sitting on it as much as he did himself.  Gramma's shirts and jumpers adjusted themselves to hide her missing breast.  My mother's shoes positively vibrated with consciousness.  Our toys looked out for us.  There was a potato knife in the kitchen that Gramma couldn't use.  It was an ordinary enough brown-handled thing, but she'd cut herself with it once, and ever after it wanted more of her blood.

Would you keep reading... I am.

this was a Christmas gift from my son, I was curious to know why he chose this.  It's the awards this book won that sold him.  

I'd link this up to Friday 56, but I can't remember who is the hostess, HELP.

Sounds like a fine read. Maybe I'll have time this summer to read more, if so I'll be sure to add that to my reading list!
