Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
So last week I was reading The Whale Rider by Witi Ihimaera, whilest camping for McFly in Leeds (but that's another blog).
It's an interesting story about female empowerment in a very male dominant society. It takes place in New Zealand amongst the Maori tribes as they try to maintain their traditions in an ever-modernising world.
It's sweet and simple. At 150 pages it doesn't go on for any longer than it needs to and it's great escapism from Western life. It's the sort of thing to read on your daily commute to work. You may end up missing your bus stop though.
I'm now behind with the challenge and need to read 155 pages in a day to catch up. I might spread it over two days but we'll see. I need to switch books tomorrow anyway. I'm on the second half of the 'I' section and it's Lika And Her Men by Alexander Ikonnikov.
