Oh ok. Then.. I'll get round to it some point, but won't rush out and buy it today.
I finished The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Very thought-provoking book.
'The Tortilla Curtain' by T. Coraghessan Boyle is what I'm ****ing through. Great book so far, a realist representation of the lives of Mexican immigrants in the USA.
I just re-read the last fifty pages or so.
It's about a prophecy that promises the birth of a great hero in a world where the four moons and their cycles decide everything - when the four moons allign, great and mysterious things happens, and the next cycle (it only happens once every 75 years) the birth of a great hero is foretold. However... on that fateful night, the awaited prince turns out to be one of a twin... so which one is the hero? One of the twins is hideously crippled and sent away at birth, as the mother (and queen) is so shocked.
So, it's basically about this prophecy.
And let me guess - This crippled twin turns out to be the hero?
Alternatively, he is an evil twin.
If its neither of those, then this writer is pretty good and creative. I'll then look for this series.
Five volumes? Wow, I can't think of stuff to fill that out based on what you've told me ....
