Banned Classic Read this for book group this month since we were supporting Banned Books Week, but I was late getting started since I couldn’t find my actual book – and still can’t!  Luckily I had the audio book narrated by Ethan Hawke to fall back on so I listened to that.  I was sure […]

Read this for the forthcoming book discussion.  Actually finished it last weekend but forgot to write it up.  Really enjoyed this, I listened to the audiobook while I did some manual labour at home, and the narrator was very good and really added to the story.  I did suspect who the bad guy might be […]

I was very lucky to obtain a prepublication copy of this book and I have to admit I wasn’t sure what to expect going in to it.  The title I felt was a little odd and having an “ology” at the end of it made it sound a bit like like a textbook rather than […]

February I read some really excellent books and again it was hard to chose just one, so I didn’t.  Here are my two favourite audio books for this month: Eating Animals – Jonathan Safran Foer Eating Animals is a riveting exposé which presents the gut-wrenching truth about the price paid by the environment, the government, […]

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest – Stieg Larsson This is the third and final part of the trilogy and I just loved it.  There was also a lot of humour in this book.  I’m sorry there are no more but I did read that he had already outlined books 4-6 before he died […]
