    I was thinking this myself. I think 7 suggestions is enough.
  9. How Are Your Libraries Doing At The Moment?

    I don't use the library system here in Scotland, although I am a member of two different districts. They never seem to have what I want (I didn't think that Graham Greene's Brighton Rock was particulary obscure) and the one that's nearest to me is awkward to park at. The online council website for the district in which I live lists the local library as operating as normal but never having gone there I can't say.

    Started reading Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor
  11. The Asylum

    No, I haven't. I will have a look though. The Asylum is a good light read and the treatments described rang true although some were very unpleasant.
  12. The Asylum

    Well written, well researched and Victorian and Gothic - although set in 1906 is a touch after the Victorian era but conditions would have remained the same. No twists in this novel but it was easy to read and entertaining, which I what I wanted. Maud is confined to the Asylum and is treated in what was becoming even then an old-fashioned and somewhat brutal way. A new doctor arrives and hypnotises her and that's when things start to change. Maud then remembers what's been done to her and is deemed cured, even by the doctor who confined her, and is let out. She then decides to check her memory and goes back to the house where she worked before she was confined.
