Last Night at the Lobster

So, the challenge has not gone well. I was getting sick trying to read in the car, then the wedding, then went and played wiffleball with friends once I got home. a grand total of 3.5 hours so far, I have one book done.

Last Night at the Lobster was a wonderfully written book. Not really something you want to read if you are looking for "light and happy", though. The book centers around the manager of a Red Lobster, that has been slated to close the next day. It is how he faces the last night of the restaurant, the last time he'll see a former girlfriend who waitresses there, and a snow storm to boot. It is touching, and you can't help but love, respect, and pity Manny throughout the last hours he works. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Grade: A.


  1. Aww, it's okay. 3.5 hours is still pretty good! Keep it up! :)

  2. 3.5 hours is nothing to scoff at. I'm glad you had some enjoyable reading in the midst of a busy weekend!

  3. You make me feel so much better. I hardly even looked at a book yesterday. Hopping to do better today. But hey, one book read is one book read!
