Memories of the Old Plantation Home: A Creole Fami&hellip by Laura Locoul Gore
I picked this book up at the gift store on the plantation in 2002 and never read it. Ten years later I blew off the dust and read this book on the subway/tube to work. A wonderful insight into the past, family lives, creole lives, Louisiana people. It was like being in a time machine. This book is a treasure and a wonderful read.

To be honest, I think Suzanne Collins had already got her film deal when she wrote this.

I don't think it warrants a review.

Amazon says I have to write 20 words so here we go...

I read the whole book and got an epiphany....dah dah(hands waving) how not to write a book properly. However EL James did this and has made lots of dosh, so where does that leave us?

I cant hate on a very good plan of action but I can hate on the story itself. So what's my opinion? There is no great revelation of some sort of special sex that we have all been waiting for, the 25yr old, helicopter flying, multi-millionaire Mr Grey... really?
