In My Neglected Mailbox (Numero Cuatro)

This time around, I tried doing IMNM with my new iPod touch. Fancy, huh?

Dear Viewer Who Has Oh-So-Wonderfully Watched this Cry for Help, 

Just as a prologue to this post...if you don't know what "In My Neglected Mailbox" is, feel free to watch the video posted to the right titled "They Want to Be Heard".

First, of all, "In My Mailbox" is a blog meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren ( and Alea at Pop Culture Junkie ( to let all of us book bloggers party on the web.

Second of all, the desperate book here is The Cider House Rules by John Irving. 

Third of all, I was initially attracted to this book because its movie adaption had such a beautiful score, a score so masterfully composed by Rachel Portman. Rachel, kudos to you and your beastly, composing talent! Here is a selection of the aforementioned soundtrack for listening pleasure:

Fourth of all, thank you for giving my boisterous books your precious time. Trust that there will be another one hating on me in the coming weeks.

Best wishes,

Uomo di Speranza

  1. The Cider House Rules is really good! I read it back in college and loved it. Then went on and read a few more of Irving's books.

    I like the idea of new year's as a gate.

    Happy New Year!

  2. I have always wanted to read this! I've never seen the movie, but I've heard that both versions are fantastic.

    And I got an ipod touch for Christmas, too. Those things are so neat :]

  3. I haven't read The Cider House Rules but love to. Great IMM. I don't have a iPod touch....

    Happy New Year!!

  4. I haven't read this book, but it does look interesting! Happy reading & Happy New Year!

  5. I've heard Cider House Rules is a good read. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Great books :)

  7. I've seen the movie version of Cider House Rules, but I've never read the book. Since I loved the movie I really should read the book version since the original story is usually a million times better than the adaptation! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Never heard of this one before but it seems really interesting!

  9. I haven't heard of this book before, but I think I'll check it out. :)
    Love the music by the way, it's so peaceful!
