The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson
3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing, 29 May 2014
I was really looking forward to this but was a bit disappointed. If I had read this before the 100-year Old Man (etc) then I wouldn't have bothered reading any more books by this author. It doesn't flow as well and the characters aren't as likeable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 29 May 2014
I love these cards. The photos are fantastic. So far my choices have been very appropriate. The only slight negative is the accompanying book which is a little confusing. I guess I'll get used to it.
The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent writing, 14 Mar 2014
I've always liked Wally Lamb's books and this one didn't disappoint me. They can be a little bit depressing but always have redeeming features. This is a thoughtful and heart-wrenching story of the unexpected consequences of other's actions.
Interesting mix of past and present which I wasn't sure of at first but the story came together at the end.
