Fiction Wednesday - The evolution of Bruno Littlemore
He has a lot to tell and he does so, very vividly. Some might find the book quite disturbing. Especially, his relationship with young researcher, Lydia Littlemore.
As Bruno says, "A being acquires language because it is curious, because it yearns to participate in the perpetual reincarnation of the world. It is not just a trick of agreement. It is not a process of painting symbols over the faces of the raw materials of the cosmos. A being acquires language to carve out its own consciousness, its own active and reactive existence. A being screams because it is in pain, and it acquires language to communicate."
This book is full of unique moments, lots of humor and of course, heartbreak.
