I’m Back!

I’m back from a lovely holiday in Northern France. We stayed in a gîte near St Malo in Brittany and enjoyed investigating the old towns and villages in the area. We did some rock pooling, visited a goat farm, experienced the ‘velo bike’ and braved the crowds at Mont Saint Michel.

 

I didn’t do much reading, but I managed to finish these books:

  • HHhH by Laurent Binet (outstanding)
  • Lacrimosa by Regis Jauffret (depressing)
  • Half-Sick Of Shadows by David Logan (stangley captivating)
  • The Book of Answers by C Y Gopinath (bizarre)

Full reviews will follow shortly.

I hope you had a wonderful half term!

I saw Laurent Binet talking about HHhH at the Hay Festival last week – charming, amusing, engaging and very French! I have added this to my wish list as a direct result so I look forward to your review.

Alison, I’m jealous. I’d love to hear Binet talk. He is very passionate in his views and although I may not agree with them all he must be fascinating to listen to. Hope you enjoy HHhH as much as I did.

Jenners, It looks a lot when I list it like that, but I’d actually nearly finished HHhH and Shadows before I left and I read most of Answers on my way home (ferry delayed by 4 hours!)
