Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson
Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson
4.0 out of 5 stars Oh! Takes me back, 14 Sep 2013
Kate paints the best word-pictures - really word-movies, because she hops from place to place and time to time and character to character, and you can't wait to see what is going to come up next. Most interesting way of telling a tale with the change of fonts too. I'm reading all her books in order, after being given one and becoming an addict. Kate had better write a dozen more, cos I'm catching up fast.
Sunshine on Scotland Street (44 Scotland Street) by Alexander McCall Smith
If you love poor out-of-the-mouths-of-babes-Bertie, and the many adventures in 44 Scotland Street, you'll pounce on this next chapter with mouth-watering delight - just as I did. Delicious writing - what can one say about A.McC Smith that hasn't already been said a thousand times? Makes the brain giggle.
The Judas Pair (Lovejoy 1) by Jonathan Gash

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Yarn, 29 Aug 2013
Enjoyed the tv series, thought I'd start on the books. This is the first Lovejoy book by author John Grant - pen name Jonathan Gash for this series. If you like antiques - watch all the tv shows - then you'll enjoy this murder mystery peppered with info about antiques, collectors, dealers, and their ploys, all with the wit and exuberance of the Lovejoy so well-portrayed by Ian McShane in the tv series.
