The Minotaur by Barbara Vine

In books read on April 30, 2006

Fab. I forget how much I like Rendell when she's writing as Vine. This is deceptively simple; nothing much seems to be happening for ages and ages, but it hooks you in and you can't put it down.

Kerstin is apparently pronounced something like "Shashtin" in Swedish, something I didn't know. It's the narrators name here. She's engaged as a nurse to the grown up, apparently schizophrenic, son of a rather odd family in the late 1960s. Rather odd family, rather good book.

Purchased on 11th March 2006.

Spiderweb by Penelope Lively

In books read on April 14, 2006

Not very fulfilling and left me disappointed and wanting it to have been better. The basic story is that a social anthropologist, used to travelling the world and researching community life on far flung shores, retires to rural Somerset and finds it just as interesting/researchable/odd as the other places she's been. Except it gets side tracked into the story of the family next door which is potentially a more interesting tale but all told a bit superficially.

Borrowed.
