  3. Finished A Pound of Flesh by Alex Gray this morning. Halfway through a re-read of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. I think it's even better second time round.

  9. Raven's Reads

    Not really, not when you posted the above... I did start The Princess Bride, but got fed up with the overly long intro explaining how the narrator came upon the story (I will probably go back to it, but I wasn't in the right mood for it when I tried it) but tonight - whilst flicking through the ever growing list of unread bargain books on my Kindle - I came upon Tales From the Folly, which I had forgotten I had, so I started on that. One story down, all looking good so far!
  10. I would recommend both, but particularly the Strike novel. It really ticked all the boxes for me
  11. Ulysses by James Joyce I always said to myself that I wouldn't attempt to read this. Everything I had heard about this was that it was, at best "difficult" and at worst "incomprehensible". Well, lockdown does funny things to you, I guess. Anyway, I decided to give it a go... OK, so I managed 15% until I gave up. That was 5 chapters. Some chapters were ok, but honestly? Those streams of consciousness were just exhausting to me! At least I can say I tried. Rating: DNF

  14. I finished A Gentleman in Moscow and although it took me a little longer to read than I’d hoped I loved it. I’ve just picked up The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg which I will start a bit later this evening.

    I never used to read much as a child - I didn't really start until my mid-late teens - so this isn't a problem I have encountered as described above, but when I did start reading it was manly Star Trek novels, which I suspect I would find to be very badly written if I tried to re-read them today!

    I know. Some books work well on two levels, and can be enjoyed by both adults and children, such as the Narnia books, or Alice in Wonderland while some are definitely best left to the children.

  19. I completed Jodi Taylor's Hard Time. An enjoyable addition to this St Mary's spin off series. It was fascinating to see threads sewn in earlier books emerge in this one. I love the characters, who are each being developed nicely. The need to immerse myself elsewhere for a while is quite strong at the moment, so I will have to ponder where that might be. Hmmmm.....
