The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Wi&hellip by Jonas Jonasson
3.0 out of 5 stars A feel good book, 25 April 2013
A pleasant and inventive book by Jonasson about a 100 year old man who escapes from his retirement home and gets involves with petty criminals and misfits as well as Stalin, Mao and other 20th century leaders.somewhat like Forrest Gump. Many amusing moments as we travel along with the genial central character but after a while, the ideas become a little repetitive.
Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read, 25 April 2013
A psychological mystery about a middle aged woman who begins each day with no memory of her previous life including the man she seems to be married to. A page turner and an interesting plot with a nice twist at the end. An enjoyable read.
The Golden Egg: (Brunetti 22) by Donna Leon

Typical Leone mystery with some nice images of Venice. Brief appearances by Patta and Brunetti's family but plot itself rather insubstantial and although a Donna Leone fan, I couldn't remember what this one was about a few days after reading it.
