Chichester Harbour: England's Coastal Gem by Liz Sagues

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book, 13 Dec 2013
This book is a delight. It is packed full of information and anecdotes, and the author's love of Chichester Harbour and everything to do with it shines through. The fact that I live right next to the Harbour probably colours my view a little(!) but I think this is a book that anyone who loves the sea and the English countryside will enjoy and cherish. The villages, the people, the history and the present day activities in and around the Harbour are all covered in a light, straightforward style that carries the reader along on a joyful ride through this beautiful part of the south coast. Lovely!
The Drop (Harry Bosch Book 17) by Michael Connelly
The Drop (Harry Bosch Book 17) by Michael Connelly
I enjoy all of Michael Connelly's books, but especially the Harry Bosch stories. This is out of the same mould as the others (although is Harry getting a little more intolerant and forgetful in his old age?) and a good story well told. If you have never read a Harry Bosch, I would start with some of the earlier ones - this is a story complete in itself, but there is enjoyment, for me at least, in seeing Harry develop over the years.
Life Of Pi by Yann Martel
Life Of Pi by Yann Martel
This starts off as a narrative that is convincingly written as though it is a record of true events. Gradually the story becomes ever more bizarre until the final twist in the (tiger's) tale at the end. I'm glad I read it - but it leaves you wondering!
