I´ve not come across this writer before, Demdike, although "He said, she said" sounds familiar. I will look her up
I have enjoyed her books to date.
Just read a little more, have about 65 pages left, I fear my worries about this one are not being dispelled. I will give her other ones a go though, this I th8nk is the latest. The problem with it is it sets up something in the present with loads of hints about a thing in the past, then goes back into the past for part two re one character, then further in the past re another one. However with the third flashback it keeps leaping forward through the years, so one section is 1960, then 1965, then 1980, and it didn’t do this earlier. It is as if the end of it is just notes and the actual thing should be much longer. Such a shame as she is a good writer of psychological thrillers, but the structure of this one is flawed.
i really enjoyed he said she said, a couple witness a crime during an eclipse...
As an aspiring writer myself I know a little about the mechanics (also English degree and former teacher of English). If I could just get my novels out there....
How are we all getting on with whatever we´re reading at the moment?
I recently read for the first time, Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome and found it both charming and a little bleak (when I think of the episode of the poor drowned woman).
I´m now reading Little Fires Everwhere by Celest Ng which has been popular lately, with the Amazon Prime Reese Witherspoon series out too.
I remember Three men in a Boat, back when I was a Younf man. (Yes, they did have books in those days). I found it amusing then, but I'm less certain if I would find it to be fun, nowadays. - in the same way that That The Goon Show, or Jewel and Warris Radio Programmesare no Longer Comedyike.
I found J K Jerome's Three men on The Bummel (Same bods on a cotinental Bike Holiday) next attempt was disappointing - I one crop writer.
