Day 207: Too Much

I started my new book, The Constant Rabbit by Jasper Fforde, yesterday. Today I put it aside in favor of a different book. Why? Because it was too political. Just a few pages in, Fforde was already tackling issues of conservatism, xenophobia, and racism. We already have too much of that in our real lives. I turn to fiction to escape it, not wallow in it. I’ve enjoyed most of Fforde’s previous books, and it’s likely that I’ll enjoy this one, too. Just not today. It’s too much on the nose for me today.
