3.0 out of 5 stars somewhat disappointing, 22 Jun 2014
I loved Blunderbuss, most of The White Stripes catalogue and a lot of Dead Weather. I have listened
to this a lot, wanting to find more tracks to like, but I really only like 4 of them - Lazaretto, Would you fight for my love (my favourite), High Ball Stepper and That Black Bat Licorice. These 4 tracks I love but I think the other tracks are
mostly very average countryish songs and as a whole I think this album is disappointing and not a patch on Blunderbuss.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This is quite a good thriller but in my opinion does not live up to the hype. Also because the two main characters
are so unpleasant I really didn't care what happened. If you want to read a better thriller where you care
about the characters, I would suggest Sharon/SJ Bolton.
The Risk of Darkness: Simon Serrailler Book 3 (Sim&hellip by Susan Hill
I have now read 4 of the Simon Serailler novels - started at 6 and then went back to the beginning! The characters and current social issues discussed (such as old age, problems with the health service and complementary medicine) are as much a part of the novels as the actual crimes.

Most of the characters are interesting and 3 dimensional and you learn more about them as the series progresses. Sometimes the story of the actual crime will span across different novels.

They are great, if, like me, you like crime/thrillers novels with depth. I'm really looking forward to starting the 4th novel in the series.
