Read: Dead Lions by Mick Herron ★★★☆☆ 📚
The second in the series, grubby comic spies. I think I’ll keep reading these now and again.
Read: The Wych Elm by Tana French ★★★☆☆ 📚
Narrator with a bump on the head and confused brain. Murder from the past. The story unwinds & unfolds in a teasing way.
Read: Where My Heart Used to Beat by Sebastian Faulks ★★★☆☆
Enjoys this life told through wars, love & remembering.
Read: A Darker Domain by Val McDermid ★★★☆☆ 📚
Read: The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin ★★★☆☆ 📚
I found the Cultural Revolution section interesting, the detective predictable, the physics and harder sci-fi lost me. I did finish it though.
Read: Treacle Walker by Alan Garner ★★★☆☆ 📚
Short full of allegory, symbolism & english folklore, most of which I am sure I missed, but I enjoyed listening to the strange dialect & nonsense words.
Read: Riccardino by Andrea Camilleri, Stephen Sartarelli (Translator) ★★★☆☆ 📚
Montalbano fades out…
Read: Oh William! by Elizabeth Strout ★★★☆☆ 📚
I think I liked this better than the original Lucy and not nearly as much as the Olive books. I think I prefer her older characters.
Read: The Woman of Troy by Pat Barker ★★★☆☆
Read: In the House of Lies by Ian Rankin ★★★☆☆ 📚
Usual enjoyable stuff Rebus retired and sticking his nose in.
