Immediately enthralling

My books are packed, though I've kept a few out to sustain me for the next while. One of which was The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing, which was recently cited by Globe Books as an essential read to understanding modern Zimbabwe. It was immediately enthralling. I also like that it's an old orange Penguin, whose biographical note concludes with the fact Lessing has just finished a new novel called The Golden Notebook.
