Hello Book Lover

The Rocks by Peter Nichols


This was wonderful. A glamorous setting-Mallorca, and a lovely cover just like Beautiful Ruins (which I still haven’t read.) This was an interesting 5 star read in that I did not love any of the characters (some I outright disliked), it was not overtly heartwarming, certainly not fun, yet I was so captivated by this story. 158 more words

It probably would if it was the same play over and over; but, while the script and blocking may be the same, it is not the same play each performance. 1,552 more words
