Last night, I finished reading The Goldfinch.
I paused, completely dazzled. I felt exactly like I did after riding the Storm Runner roller coaster at Hershey Park.
This one-of-a-kind coaster will launch you from 0-72 mph in 2 seconds flat. 18 stories straight up, straight down. And that’s just the beginning. You’ll fly through a 135 foot cobra loop, barrel rolls, and a dramatic flying snake dive. The first hydraulic launch coaster to feature inversions.
|Aggressive Thrill Ride – This is a high-speed experience. Riders will experience many unexpected, rapid changes in speed, direction, and/or elevation and requires rider full body control. This ride is not recommended for guests with physical, cognitive, and/or medical limitations.|
After I rode The Storm Runner, I got right back in line and rode it again.
You know what that means. I opened this nearly 800 page puppy right back to page one. I’m reading The Goldfinch again. Right now. The moment after I finished it.
I’m enthralled, high as a kite, extremely alive, a little sick, slightly dizzy, and very, very impressed with what human beings can create. I’ll write a musier musing after my second reading, but wow. Wow! Again, please!
