Re: What book are you reading now?

I'm just about to start 'Benediction' by Kent Haruf which is the last book in a trilogy. I very much enjoyed the first two, Plainsong and Eventide, and thought them beautifully written with wonderful characterisation. Highly recommended.

Re: What book are you reading now?

I've just finished reading 'After I've gone' by Linda Green. It was unputdownable.

It starts where Jess, this happy easy going young woman reads an obituary thread dedicated to herself on Face book. Looking at the date she sees it is 18 months into the future...

Re: What book are you reading now?

I am reading "Heroes of the Frontier" by Dave Eggars. A very descriptive, amusing story of a woman and her two children who escape civilisation by going to Alaska.

Whilst in my local town yesterday my daughter and I called in a charity shop and bought four books each, so plenty of reading in the coming weeks, plus the freebies I download on Kindle.

Re: What book are you reading now?

That book sounds interesting CeeCee. Iíll be interested to know your verdict once youíve finished it.

Iím almost at the end of The General by CS Forester and finding it both well written and interesting. The central character is an officer who gains rapid promotion during the First World War which gives a very good backdrop. I hadnít heard about the book until recently when I read somewhere that it was the favourite book of General Kelly, Trumpís Chief if Staff so thought Iíd give it a go.

" Satan: His psychotherapy and cure by the unfortunate Dr. Kassler"

I read this 30 years ago, but due to my memory loss it's like reading it for the 1st time. My wife, with her charming mispronunciation of the English language, often said, "You got All-chimers".

Re: What book are you reading now?

Behind closed doors by B A Paris was one of the best books I've ever read. The suspense was so unbearable I stayed up till 3 in the morning to finish the book off.

I'm now reading this authors second novel. It's called 'The Break Down.'
It's very good..

Re: What book are you reading now?

Thanks carol, just put it on my Kindle!
And also Frederick Forsyth's The Day of the Jackal, inspired by Art's TV/film thread

At present I'm reading Freya by Anthony Quinn... excellent, and intriguing.

I'm reading Death in the Air a true story about London's deadly smog and a serial killer in 1952 by Kate Winkler Dawson.

I can highly recommend it.
