A Ferrero Rocher begs to be crunched immediately, mixed with the juices of the mouth igniting the brain in the process and bit again until you hit the hazelnut and again until the chocolate cream inside just melts in the mouth :) Some books are definitely like that. You just crave more and more and never want to lay it down before you are done assimilating the whole. I just want to zip through those pages, absorbing the facts, creating and updating the scenarios in my head and flow along with the characters in the story, maybe even play some of their parts with my heart and head. Those are the books that get the highest rating with me, as they provide me the greatest delight by letting me in on those roller coaster rides, where i immensely enjoy the ups and downs, looking forward to knowing the how the mystery is solved, if the romance is fruitful and when good wins over evil.
But then, there are a few more which like the Cadbury Silk, you want to just leave it in your mouth, imbibe those sinful tastes, toss and turn it around just to maximize the sensations and hope it never ends... Those kind of books are wonderful too, those which I dont want to finish reading, those which i read a few pages at a time to savor every word, revel every sentence and appreciate every feeling kindled. Thats the kind of book I am reading now- Jane Eyre. Before i started reading this book, i had mentally framed a picture that it would be like Oliver Twist interbred with Pride and Prejudice. (no clue why or how i came about this theory) The cold, dreary dull start made me jump to another book, finish it by the time i read a couple of pages in this one. The scenario changed pretty soon, into another monotonous and much expected setting. Nothing that excited me. Then appears the unexpected- it has romance, no doubt, but mystery? No way had i anticipated a Rebecca! Owing to the many movies seen and novels read, the quandry too, was not an unsolvable or inscrutable one... And i can very well guess how this one is going to end too. But the book has been a pleasant surprise and the language is so flowery but formidable; So complicated yet so crystal clear in reflecting the moods and sentiments; Truly, one of the top books to read!
This intensely interesting book is available free for the kindle. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
