Until We Read Until We Have Faces

Ladies, I made a big deal about how I'd waited to read Until We Have Faces with you all, and then Holy Week and Easter happened. What I'm saying is that it's still sitting pristine up on the mantel in my library. Life is going on at a tremendous pace -- on top of our own sorrows and joys we've had the sorrow and joy of the Church. And this weekend I'm going to the long-anticipated wedding of an old friend, before which all fiction pales. I will try to read this week and put up a post, but I don't know if I can make any guarantees.

So, feel free to discuss Until We Have Faces if you're ready to talk about it. But if you really want to help out a friend, recommend some shoes to go with this dress:

And do it fast. Because I only have until Saturday before I have to make a stunning impression on college friends I haven't seen in ten years.

I just started re-reading it on Monday so I don't yet have much to say; but will gladly jump in if someone gets the ball rolling.

I like the shoes she has on. Got any like those?

A little late here, but I'm sure the dress made a stunning impression!

I just read through your page of posts. I've read both "the Movie Goer" and "Till We have Faces" years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed what you had to say on them.
Because I was living on the Gulf Coast at the time is why I primarily loved Percy. I loved the vicarious experience his descriptive imagery provided.
I thought the protagonist was cynical about everybody except the one wheelchair bound boy. The message was subtle and I probably need to read it again since I was in college when I read it the last time.
My all time favorite Greek myth which I read again and again was Psyche and Cupid so I appreciated the Christian analogy Lewis was making. It has carried me through many a dark day: my Lover is here, even if He's invisible.
Glad I found your blog!
