Re: What are you reading?

I like the Kellerman/Delaware series, though haven't read one for a year or so now, trouble is I can never remember which ones I've read and which I haven't!

Milo's a great supporting character!

Re: What are you reading?

currently reading: Carry on, Jeeves
Not on a Kindle but on my trusty old Sony reader, though
I've watched the TV series a few months ago and now when I read the book, I keep seeing the characters. Highly distracting!
(Btw, I can wholeheartedly recommend the DVDs - absolutely hilarious and the cast - down to the smallest character - is simply perfect!)

All the Laws but One By the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. It's about the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in times of war (by the United States).

I LOVE Of Human Bondage. Not a fan of "The Razor's Edge." Maugham is a master of prose.

Yeah he is, when I got my Kindle Fire for Christmas I was looking at free classics and I just randomly downloaded 'The Hero'. From then on he quickly rose to be one of my favourite writers. So far I've only read The Hero and The Magician, but I'll probably read Of Human Bondage after Moon and Sixpence.

Re: What are you reading?

I have just finished reading I Remember You by Sigurdarsdottir. It is a ghost story/mystery about 2 boys who go missing more than 50 years apart in Iceland. Are their disappearances connected?

My next read will be Remembering Babylon by David Malouf which is a novel about an English cabin boy who is marooned on the coast of Australian during the 19th century and is taken in by Aboriginals.

Re: What are you reading?

I liked it. However, generally speaking, I like the vast majority of books that are set in Iceland as I am an Icelandophile.

It is quite typical for both a Icelandic ghost story and an Icelandic mystery. There are two stories being told at once, the story about a psychiatrist and the other about some people renovating a house in an remote village and the two stories have alternating chapters.

The book is set in the region around Ísafjörður (NW Iceland) which is a nice change from books set in Reykjavik. However Yrsa does tend to set her books all over Iceland (and one was set in Greenland).

I would rate is 4/5.

Yesterday, I read over 200 papers about how the Lionfish could or could not fit into commercial fishing.
