'Jane Eyre' for the millionth time, for our book club.


We did Jane Eyre for our book club - that made for a really animated discussion considering most reading people are very familiar with the story.

I'm looking forward to our book club's discussion on Tuesday evening, even though it means missing the rewatch again!

And again I find something new to think about...all the times I have read this book and yet it seems I have completely overlooked this phrase. Everytime. Horrifically brilliant.

Having finished the house brick that was Lethal White, I am now starting the Tudor house brick Tombland by C J Sansom. Shardlake rules!

Ploughed my way through 5 Red Herrings / D L Sayers which anyone who is anyone thinks is the best apparently...can't see it myself. Now more happily employed reading Have His Carcase...a much more satisfying read to my mind.

I've read some of the Shardlake series, though I think I'm a couple of books behind at this point. They are good, but a bit dark.

The Ian Carmichaels are on my to do list. Five rdd herrings would be miles better as a tv prog: too much of the railway timtables in the book. Big yawns.

Yes agreed but that is part of why I like them. I found Sovereign especially so but it was well worth the reading.

Iíve always found it quite boring, and rarely re-read it, whereas I read Strong Poison or Murder Must Advertise pretty nearly every year.

Iím also not so fussed on The Nine Tailors, oddly enough. Itís the one most people cite as the best as far as Iím aware. I donít dislike it, but donít love it, either.

Have His Carcase is a good one.

Thanks for saying that. I always thought it was me being common and thick for not liking it. Murder Must Advertise is my favourite along with Gaudy Night. Nine Tailors is up next though...have never minded reading that but I will read it with more interest this time round.

I'm about to start reading "Rivers of London" by Ben Aaronovitch as that's the book we're reading in our book club at work.

Reading Peter Davison's autobiography, Is There Life Outside the Box: An Actor Despairs. So far, quite interesting.

I made some inroads into "Rivers of London" last night. Unusual for me to stay in on a Friday night. Getting into it. In some it reminds me of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

My O' level novel..I'm sure it's a good book...but...

I was thinking of getting that for my brother for Xmas. How is it so far? Are there pictures?
