Have we all stopped reading or just posting about what we read?
Since I last posted I have finished reading the Sherlock Holmes canon by finishing off The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes
. From now on it will be Sherlock patishes for me.
Also read Fragile Things
by Neil Gaiman. I like about half of the short stories in this collection.
And today i finished Seven Little Australians
by Ethel Turner.
I last read this book as a teenager around 40 years ago after I had watched the wonderful mini-series the aired on Australian TV in 1973.
I was very pleased to find a DVD copy of the mini-series on Amazon last year and bough it straight away. When it arrived I was disappointed to discover that this US copy of the min-series does not include the last two episodes of the series (which covers events in the last three chapters in the book)
The events of the last three chapters are very sad as a terrible tragedy does occur so maybe the American powers-to-be deemed it too upsetting for children to watch (?).
