Re: What are you reading?

^^ Aside from an unexpected death in the family, which I am struggling with a bit, things have been going well for me. Thank you very much. Lots of projects going on and things happening for me.

How have you been?

Oh, dear. My condolences... may your relative rest in peace. Grief can be a very stressful thing... but you'll get through it eventually, hang in there!

Great news on the projects and happenings front! Things are okay with me, thank you for asking!

I have just started reading The Satin Man: Uncovering the mystery of the missing Beaumont children by Alan Whiticker.

The disappearance of the 3 Beaumont children from a beach in Adelaide in 1966 is Australia's greatest mystery and I believe that the author gives his own theory about what happened to them in this book.
This prompted me to look the incident up on Wikipedia. Very sad, I'd be interesting in knowing what his conclusions are?

I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone, just started The Testimony
Finished The Testimony over the weekend. It is one of those books you just want to throw across the room when you've finished it. It's an interesting concept, and it'd be churlish to suggest that I like everything explained but I think he could have done more to at least intimate more possibilities for what caused it rather than leaving the whole thing hanging. Also given he writes from the perspective of 20+ people across the globe but they all practically talk the same way! Wants to be WWZ, doesnt come close.

Now relaxing with an Jonathan Kellerman Alex Delaware mystery (one of those books you;'re probably not sure who's the author and who's the title character if you don't know!)

I just finished The Last Black Cat. It is supposed to be a book for children, however, I think I'll never be old enough for one of Trivizas' books. In essence, it is a book about racism. Black cats start disappearing all over the place but the other cats do not seem to care, until it's kind of late...

Re: What are you reading?

Having read Quarantine I happened to stumble upon the author's Quantum Mechanics and Quarantine on-line.

In the on-line article, Greg Egan highly recommends Richard Feynman's QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter, which I then bought... However, having only read the introduction, I realise it's not bed-time reading for me so, to have have some of that I started reading M. John Harrison's The Centauri Device.
