  1. translated by Xan Fielding. Very easy read. Obvious... Subtle. Thought provoking. Worth a read - don’t be put off by the movies and tv series. Surprisingly relevant after 57 years.
  2. Not been on too much recently. Since the lockdown started I have been working 9 hour days. I took yesterday off to do some chores (fitted new legs to a sofa) and then stupidly logged on today. 10 hours later and I might need to eat...
  3. Thanks Luna! I’ve just spent £30 that I couldn’t afford in books about/by Derek Jarman.
  4. The Rolf Lassgard films started poorly but got better. They were close to the books. The Krister Henrikkson serials were good tv. And they were still approved by Henning Mankell. In fact, the reason why no more stories were written about Lynda Wallander is because the actress in the first series killed herself and he didn't feel he could write the character again. And "The Trouble Man2 was written to allow the Wallander films to end - at Krister's request. The Kenneth Branagh series were co=produced by Yellow Bird who made the Henrikkson series. So that is why they are similar. I think Branagh got how flawed Wallander is, but he didn't portray him the way I had envisuoned him. The books are still the best way to appreciate Wallander - surpirse, surprise!
  5. I've been told to work from home for the next week or so. I suspect it will be for longer than that.
  6. Yes, sometimes. It depends on the narrator and also on how much "action" is taking place.
  7. I have lots of opinons. I don't think there is a difference between physical and ebooks I think the suggestion that we use different parts of our brains is worth exploring - because my experience suggests no difference. I prefer ebooks for the convenience. I like physical books because they are an advertisment and encourage interaction with other readers.
  8. i hope everyone has a great day doing what they enjoy the most.
  9. I love historical fiaction, especiall WWI and WWII. Not so much the romantic aspect...
  10. Hello everyone. I've been checking in every so often (and responding to Luna's reports about dodgy posts [Luna, you're my hero]). Work has been manic this year. I'm lucky if I get two nights at home during the week. But It's all good for my pension (I hope) and I'm reading lots. I'm doing Jack Reacher from start to finish (I know...) I'm on goodreads if any of you are https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5578579-kevin-dayman xxx
  11. My goodreads target is 60 books. I've read 37 so far, 62% of my plan.
