PLAY IT AS IT LAYS BY JOAN DIDION
Play It as It Lays - Joan Didion,David Thomson

“There was silence. Something real was happening: this was, as it were, her life. If she could keep that in mind she would be able to play it through, do the right thing, whatever that meant.”

Whenever Maria called, it was as if the ringing of the phone heralded the end of any conviviality I might have been harboring. I always had the impression when I talked with her that the Fun to Be Around Maria was dying in another room, and all I was left with was the beautiful corpse.

She was beautiful. Even though we had all seen changes to her appearance recently. So beautiful, in fact, she could still get acting jobs without too much trouble. I could see this all ending soon because she was so morose that her mood permeated the whole movie set. She had become so lost, so indifferent to everything. She was a zombie, long before Hollywood became infatuated with them.

Her relationship with men was not particularly complicated. They wanted to sleep with her, and she was rather indifferent as to whether she slept with them or not. When we had first met, I’d “seduced” her while blinded by her glamour and allurement. It was only after we were entangled that I realized that all of that was only skin deep.

32 Lays Later: The List 2 - Kate J Squires

This book was so awful that I couldn't even finish it. It was poorly written & the dialogue was simple. What I mean by simple is that it read like a 5 year old wrote it. This book was also very misleading. You'd think it was a ménage book but there want any ménage loving up in here. Three people fell in love with one another but, there was no ménage hot sexy times between them. I read the first 53% of this book before I had to just say screw it & put it down. I did skim-skip the last half of the book & nothing caught my eye. Which is to bad because this book had potential to be really great.

Play It As It Lays: A Novel
Play It as It Lays - Joan Didion,David Thomson What exactly is the point to this novel? Trying my best to fathom something, but it's proving futile. Something about nothingness and the lack of meaning to human existence? I don't know. Was a very frustrating read. Would've given a worse rating, but it is well written. I just can't get to the point of it. Maybe I just don't *get* it..? Maybe one day I'll come to appreciate it, who knows?!
