Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Oh sorry...I must have the wrong one then.
Though knowing my mother, she told me the wrong title!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Maybe were thinking of 'Gone Girl'?   Similar word in title, also a book-to-movie, and heard them being compared.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I suppose it's no longer what I'm reading "at the moment" since I finished reading it last night, but I just read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, which was assigned reading for one of my classes.
I liked it, even though in some ways it puzzled me, but I think that's the point.  It doesn't have the same "payoff" of revelations as you might expect from a book with a dystopian setting, of sorts, but I like that it's different and I think there's a point to it being the way it is.  It has some clever moments and some sad moments, especially near the end.  I like that it's different, so if you're in the mood for something different, I'd recommend it.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I'm just about to finish The Essential Arthur Conan Doyle adventures...yes I know we have a separate thread for this!
But anyway.
It's been a joy, being in my happy place, reading Canon.
Really enjoying reading some of the stories for a second, or even third time.
I haven't re-read the ones I've already read three times!
Interesting to see the ones Mark and Steven chose and I love their little comments on them!

Oh before this I read the little pamphlet: Sherlock Lives...which I think we also have a separate thread for!
Got the odd new fact out of it.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I started a very good crime story a couple of days ago. It has waited much too long on my to-read-list. It's set in Berlin in the 20th of the last century. The main character is a criminal commissar working on the murder of a female M.D. , being an educated obstetrician but also helping out women in need in Berlin between the two big world wars.
Thank you, you-know-who-you-are.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

So(still on my Xmas books!)
I am now onto the one my son bought me.
He always buys me weird but interesting books.
This time it's 'Extremely loud and incredibly close' by Jonathan Safran Foer.
Written from the point of view of a(I think) autistic 9 year old boy, who loses his Dad in 9/11.
Quite mind blowing, but very human.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I suppose I am a little late... I just finished this book today, so I'm not currently reading it anymore. Anyway, the book was Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin. I had been wanting to read it since it came out a couple years. It was really good and covers a topic that is not covered in many books. It centres around the one main character but it's about his family, too, since the narration is shared by a few characters.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I am still working through my Xmas books, now on the ones my pal bought me.
So first up it's H.G Wells The Rights of Man.
Did I mention I am also ploughing through Anna Karenina on my E book?
I am a quarter of the way through, so far!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Are you enjoying it? My mom tried reading it once and she didn't finish because she couldn't keep the characters straight because they are referred to by different names at different parts.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Oh yeah, that's Russian literature for you!
You get used to the fact that every character( and there are a LOT of characters!)has at least 3 names! They have their title, their official name and a pet name.
So yes, each time you start a chapter( and there are even MORE chapters!), it takes you the first few pages to think: ok, so where are we now?  Who is this and what are we talking about?!
It's not all my kind of thing, but it's interesting as historical, social and cultural testimony.

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

Got to love those Slavic patronymics, matronymics, pet names, names adopted in marriage haven't you.   

I'm reading Jane Two by Sean Patrick Flanery. I ordered it specially from the US where it was published last month. I've met Sean and he was lovely and I like his acting work that he's done. It is his first novel and I am very impressed!

Re: What are you reading at the moment?

I just started reading "Shades of Grey" by Jasper Fforde (author of the Thursday Next series).

I'm only a couple of chapters in, but it's pretty bizarre... The story is set in an Orwellian future, but with Jasper Fforde's sense of humour it's certainly not "grey". I can't even begin to describe what has happened so far, and I have no idea where the plot is going to take me. But I'm kind of hooked...

I've just about killed off Anna Karenina...
In the meantime, I also read Owen Jones'  'The Establishment.'
