Too much succulence
I just read Suzanne Collins's Gregor the Overlander books 3 and 4 back to back. Writing, characters, stories: all wonderful.
But now I feel as if I've eaten a bowl of shrimp scampi. I've enjoyed every last bite of these succulent delights but I need to wait a little before I eat more. Food this rich and yummy demands re-living. Or maybe I just need to cleanse my palate.
Time to find the equivalent of lime sorbet, followed by some Vietnamese noodle soup, or potatoes roasted in peanut oil, or pear tarts with a square of dark chocolate in the middle.
