Resident (4/5)

  1. January A Cotswold Christmas Mystery by Rebecca Tope - 6.5/10 "The Dead of Winter" by Nicola Upson - 7.5/10
  2. Thanks both, hope you have a good new year.
  3. I only read 30 books last year, well 31 and 2, at the end of the year, were abandoned halfway through. So my total actually read was 29, normally I aim for around 50, but due to hardly commuting I read far fewer books than that. And now that I'm meant to be losing my job at the end of March, I don't know what's going to happen, so not a brilliant start to a new year.☹️
  4. The Shape of Darkness by Laura Purcell
  5. Almost finished this and oh yes the catgut, I think I know more about that than I ever wanted to......😝 Having said that the book isn't too gruesome (I've read far worse) and it is well-written. Enjoying it so far and it will be interesting to see how the chalk and cheese relationship (I love some of McGray's insults) progresses.
  6. I'm about to start the first book in the Frey and McGrey series.
  7. Yes that's right, I've never been aware of the film version though.
  8. I think the film might be Another Country, which they were both in, and sounds right timewise, based on the Alan Bennett play.
  9. I thought they were both fairly the same, different settings but the end result was the same, and I still felt the ambiguity was there in the film. Been a while since I saw it - it was one I watched in the first lockdown! the Rachel Weisz version.
  10. I read one of hers a few years ago, The Other Side of the Bridge? it was good, a quiet writer is a very good description, but as you say, it's deceptive.
  11. I finally got round to watching the film "Seraphim Falls" over the weekend, thought it was good but slightly baffled by the ending, which seemed rather ambiguous.
