Re: What are you reading at the moment ?


I like the sound of the Bob Marley book Shelley - can you let me have the title/author pls? I remember being very surprised one day when my mother (who was Frank Sinatra generation) told me she liked Bob Marley. She'd no idea who he was and I'm not sure which song of his she liked so much.

i have just finished reading A Streetcat called Bob. I realy enjoyed reading this, it's a truly heartwarming story. James Bowen has written another book about his life with Bob and is also fundraising for the Blue cross.

Re: What are you reading at the moment ?


I have a few more recommendations:-

The Abomination by Jonathan Holt (first in a trilogy, fast moving, well plotted.)

The Messenger of Athens by Anne Zouroudi (really enjoyed this one, not my usual sort of read.)

The Wanderer in Unknown Realms by John Connolly (A Kindle "single" - rather spooky and the sort of book that stays lurking in the back of the mind ...... )

Gosh Pauline - I hope you enjoy them, they are gy-normous! I have read the first and enjoyed it before the tv series started and then got about 80% through the second and enjoyed that too. I am going to get back to them some time!

I know and five of them, I'm hoping they aren't too lord of rings-like with all the made up places, names, races etc I got bored part the way through the second book. It was like studying for a history exam lol

Re: What are you reading at the moment ?


Here's a new recommendation from me "The Accidental Time Traveller" by Sharon Griffiths.

As a child of the 1950s myself, I was drawn to the odd sounding blurb about this book and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I found it odd enough so that I am still puzzling about parts of it but the descriptions of the bleakness of life in the '50s was as I just about remember, especially the no central heating bits and lino on the floors. Good holiday read IMO.

Re: What are you reading at the moment ?


just finished reading two books.
The first is called Far to go by Alison Pick.
It's fiction but based on her grandparents journey, a very interesting, enjoyable book that made me think. It is about a family of Czechoslovakian Jews during the war.
The second book is a murder thriller called Private Berlin by James Patterson .
