After having re read nearly all my ‘best’ books in the house I was at last able to find a new one in the PDSA Charity Shop. (I know I can go to the Library now but sometimes there are just too many and not being a fast reader, I read when I go to bed, it’s daunting finding one)
Anyway, I picked up a Ben Elton Past Mortem. I have read a lot of his books and he has a good style imho.
So far so good 😊
Your secrets are safe with me, I wasn't even listening
I like Rose Tremain. There was a play on the Radio recently written by her The Jester of Astapovo about Tolstoy stopping at an out of the way place, being unwell and taken in by the Station Master and his wife. True story well told
As for your Aliens Steve, seems that if they could travel here in light years they should be capable of anything. This was what put me off Harry Potter. The Wizards built Tents with all mod cons and then had to walk to the river to get water??
I am reading the most wonderful book, the garden of lost and found by Harriet Evans. It alternates modern with victorian and the characters are so well drawn, and the descriptions so vivid, it is one of the rare books that has made me cry with some of the things that have happened. I love it when a book moves you so much. It has at its centre a glorious painting and a house. I keep scouring to see if it is real it is that well described.
I like the sound of that book - right up my street. I've put it on the list!
I have just finished it. It is the most fulfilling read I’ve had for ages. I am going to seek more books of hers out now. I love a story with an old house at the centre. I could absolutely picture it. Delicious.
