Sigh, being back at work has really slowed the reading back down. Never mind. For some reason Flow Down Like Silver has been slow going. I'm enjoying it very well, but I regularly find myself reading back over paragraphs to see what more I can get from them - close reading I guess rather than the usual casual flit through. I might have to post some quotes, as there have been some crackers. Still at least a couple of weeks reading here.
Esperanza Rising has been an unexpected treasure. I can't quite remember how I stumbled across it - the online version of browsing the library I think. I was looking for a Historical Fiction set in the Americas for a reading challenge and found this. A lovely story, and the audio performance is wonderful. It's an odd juxtaposition to be reading this so soon after The Road to Wigan Pier, and the similarities & contrasts between the Mexican & other migrant labourers in California's central valley with the mining communities in the north of England are most interesting.
And I finally got around to buying Playing Games, having read and enjoyed the first in the series - Wicked Games very much. Nice to see the main characters from Wicked Games feature in Playing Games.
Next up... no idea what's next up!
