As I cannot find the thread for the Group Read of Kim I thought I would start one.
Please don't tell me I am the only one?
I have the book ready, but haven't started yet - soon, very soon.
I think this is what I am feeling. Kim is evoking the sounds, smells, tastes and sights that I associate with India. My nonfiction book at the moment Wonder of the age : master painters of India, 1100-1900 is probably intensifying it, and I have two Bollywood movies downstairs to watch as well. I'd better make curry for supper. Wait a minute - I had chickpea curry last night.
Thanks for the link, really interesting, I will have to pass it on. The brain is fascinating, I am not surprised by the links between the different parts of the brain, as I am reading Kim, I can see India in my mind's eye. There was a bit in one of the Thursday Next books that talked about readers fleshing out the text as they read, so this would all be linked into what the article says. I'm an ESL teacher and all of us at the academy read voraciously, something that really helps when teaching a language.
