A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Wide Sargasso Sea

Wide Sargasso Sea - Jean Rhys Great. I bought this for fifty cents at a used book store. There were three copies but I didn't like the cover of the other two because it had some scene from a movie adaptation; some woman being ravished like you see on romance novels. I get home and start looking at it and there is a picture of someone's dog chewing on a bone glued to the inside of the cover! Why would somebody do this: take the time to paste a photograph of a dog eating a bone on the inside paperback cover of Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea? I will just have to leave it there. I can't possibly remove it.
