Well I thought I would make every effort to keep this list up to date but I did not allow for being knocked for six with a cold come flu, but better now and so can catch up with a few reviews of the books that I read whilst not feeling too well.
The first book I read was Death in a White tie by Ngaio Marsh. This was a book that had been recommended to me as one I might like. Maybe it was the font, or in my view the authors annoying habit of referring to the characters with their surname or in this case it was more likely to be their title, but during the text any conversation was more likely to refer to some nickname. Without a crib to know who “Bunty” was or other such names, it was so hard to follow that I did not enjoy the book that much.
In fact I would not have bothered to finish it except that, it was such a bizarre murder Lord Robert murdered in thick fog in the back of a cab and no-one was able to make out who did it including the non attentive cabbie.
With a few minutes thought there is only one real character who could have carried out the murder and 90% of the book could have been really missed out. Anyway this was book
I will record this as book 7 , week 3 fiction 5 (audio books 1) non fiction 2
