My Second Chance book is one I re-read by accident: Atonement by Ian McEwan.
I don’t usually re-read books. The few times I have done so on purpose stick out in my mind as ruinous! I re-read The Chronicles of Narnia and they lost some of their magic from my memories so I was sad I had given them a second look. oh well.
But with Atonement, I had read it in the 90’s as a book club read and just didn’t recall it at all – what I thought, etc, so it must have been ‘forgettable’.
So when I picked it up last year, I had that dejavu feeling (looked in my notes; sure enough, I had read it once already?!) but I couldn’t remember how it ended! I wanted to read it before the movie… And I happened to love it, the second time around and have begun a bit of a crush on McEwan’s writing style. I do realize he is somewhat of a love-him-hate-him author so I don’t try to convince anyone that they ‘must read’.
