Re: What book are you reading now?

Stephen King's "The Institute". It's very disturbing, I'm nearly at the end, I hope it doesn't get silly like some of his stories do.

It would make an excellent film though, something different and quite believable as I've seen tv documentaries on similar subjects.

Re: What book are you reading now?

I am approaching the end of Book 2 of Robin Hobb's Soldier Son trilogy, Forest Mage. I have read a lot of her books over the years and this is very different to what she has written before. Slow and quite hard going at times, is as much philosophical allegory as it is fantasy.
But I will read Book 3, especially as it is is a bit shorter than Book 2's 818 pages!

Re: What book are you reading now?

"Perfect Kill" by Helen Fields, I should have asked for historical crime fiction for the library's click and collect!
It's horrible! All about human trafficking for sex trades and organ harvesting!
The trouble is I can't stop reading it as I want the kidnapped people to escape!

Why are female crime writers so brutal and using bad language these days!?

"No Mercy" by Martina Cole.
The first and last of her books I'll ever read! F word on practically every page, not to mention other expletives.

Must amend my list on the library's "Click and collect" service to "Historical crime" methinks.
