The Game by Laurie R King

In books read on April 7, 2006

Having really enjoyed the last in this series after a long break I wondered whether this would be as much fun to read. It was. Russell and Holmes go to India searching for a lost British spy, who in a neat fiction tie in, is Kipling's Kim when he's all grown up. Good holiday reading.

Purchased on 8th February 2006.

The Orchard on Fire by Shena Mackay

In books read on April 5, 2006

Picked up off the bookshelf in our holiday cottage - by Darren actually who thought I might like it based on the fact that he'd read another of Mackay's books years ago. And I did. Found it all a bit flowery at first (mostly due to reading it hot on the heels of Ian McEwan I think) but it paints a vivid picture of a 1950s village childhood. Some aspects of it I found a bit stereotypical but in the end they didn't distract from the overall tale.

Borrowed.

Saturday by Ian McEwan

In books read on April 3, 2006

Best book I've read this year, and I don't feel like I've been reading a load of rubbish either. I wasn't at all sure to start with, what with brain surgery and the book being set in a single day, but it grew on me immensely. Off to find more McEwan to read.
