Tom Jones, Smilla and me.

I’m still reading Tom Jones and my experience reading it has absolutely nothing in common with my experience reading Smilla’s Sense of Snow many years ago except that in both cases I didn’t want to finish the story, I wanted the books to not end.  With Smilla I popped popcorn and would read and I’ll never forget the stew that is almost a major plot point, but of course no recipe was included.

I don’t eat anything when reading Tom Jones, I would choke to death from laughing while eating.
