The Kate Morton books are really good MrsBungleBear. I think the 100 year old man is still on offer for 20p if anyone wants it.

Thanks, all - have just bought it for 20p on the Kindle. Wouldn't have known it was on sale otherwise.

Its me - OP

if you liked this also read the Harold fry and the EXCELLENT heft - also ace

Then if you like a bit of crime read The good father by Noah someone ( sorry!) is a good read.

BadDog pls tell me about Heft, have seen you mention this on another thread and am curious!

i would advise not reading TOO many descirptors before tbh, just read and enjoy. Its about a semi recluisve over weight guy in Brooklyn.

Thats it.

Just started this book last night after buying it of Amazon for 20p. I've not read much but I'm enjoying it so far wink

I must be the only person alive who hated this book.
I brought it after reading all the wonderful reviews about it only to be very disappointed.
It reminded me of the children's book about the giant turnip where the farmer collects more and more people to try and pull up the giant vegetable.

I preferred that book more.

I'm reading it at the moment and enjoying it. Some good laugh out loud moments. It appeals to my sense of humour - very dark grin

I wasn't really a fan either, but then I don't like "funny" books or films. (Contrarty to what you might think, I do have a sense of humour!)
