A Summer of Drowning

A Summer of Drowning by John Burnside

In books read on March 26, 2012

Started off well and obviously very well written, but it didn't seem to go anywhere in the end. Felt like a book by a writer who knows how to write but has no clue at all about plot. I wasn't after a tightly tied up thriller but I did want something with a bit more depth than a character study. All the elements were there I guess, it just didn't work.

I'm making it sound worse than it was; I enjoyed it, but would have liked it to have been more.

The Kashmir Shawl

The Kashmir Shawl by Rosie Thomas

In books read on March 20, 2012

Really enjoyed this story that intertwines two generations of Welsh women in India. After the death of her father Mair goes to India with her grandmother Nerys' Kashmir shawl to see if she can find out about the shawl and her grandmother's life in Kashmir. Then the story also tells the story of Nerys' time in India as the wife of a missionary. For a little while I thought the stories were going to echo each other too closely but that didn't turn out to be right and I was glad the stories had their own twists and turns. I also had the expectation of a cheesy ending, which I was also happy to find was incorrect and the book had a very decent ending. I'll trust the author next time!
