This is what I’m reading at the moment:
My lovely friend Julie dropped it in last week, along with the novel ‘Getting There’ by Manjula Padmanabhan, because she thought I’d like them.
Since I downloaded the Kindle App to my iPad, I haven’t read a ‘proper’ book, I’ve been working my way through my electronic library. But I’ve discovered that I can’t use my tablet outside (my own reflection obscures the page) or in the bath ~ what if I nod off and drown my favourite gadget? 😦
This narrative non~fiction follows on from ‘The Battersea Road to Enlightenment’, which I haven’t read (but plan to soon.) As she charts her journey of inner and outer change Isabel’s style is chatty, insightful and humorous, which I admire. It’s how I’d like to write.
I’m nearly half way through now ~ having explored Feng Shui and participated in Anthony Robbins’ seminar, she’s now embarking on a ten day Silent Retreat. After that she’ll attend Satsang sessions with a Guru and travel to the Amazonian Jungle to meet Shamans and sample hallucinogenics, in her quest for further enlightenment.
I’m thoroughly enjoying this guided tour ‘through the eccentric highways and byways of the new age and human potential movement,’ as Mick Brown of The Daily Telegraph calls it in his critique. I love the jolly cover too, (that’s how I choose my books!)
I’m grateful to Julie for thinking of me. You could say that’ The Battersea Road to Paradise’ is right up my street! 😉
