The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton

This year's Man Booker Prize winner is a really good read. Set in the 1860s Gold Rush era on the west coast of New Zealand it is a rollicking good tale of  romance, murder , intrigue and deception. The main characters are many but all are flawed in some way which contibutes to the way the story develops as they become embroiled…See More

JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy is out today!

 

 

 

The new novel by JK Rowling has nothing to do with wizards or witches or evil magic and the author and publishers are quite clear in saying that the book is not for children but is her first written for adults. So before you read it you might want to check out this review from the…

Hey! I just started Kate Grenville's The Lieutenant. Although I really enjoyed her last novel, The Secret River, I'm finding this one a bit hard to get into. Maybe it's the stilted writing, its just not flowing! But the characters are quite vivid. So we'll see.

Thank you for the welcome.

Favourite authors? Ian Rankin and Robert Wilson in crime, Ian McEwan, Andrew Greig . . . as usual my mind has gone blank when put on the spot. Really I read all sorts. Membership of two book groups keeps me busy reading what I wouldn't otherwise pick up myself, often with surprising results.

Hi Lindach, Mosman's a home away from home for us (my hubbie's from Sydney). I'm always look for new and interesting reads. At the moment I'm into Australianna/historical - Just finished 'For the Term of His Natural Life' and have now moved on to 'The Fatal Shore' (recommended by a friend in Sydney). Any others you'd recommend?

Thanks so much! I'm excited for my next reads!

Thanks I will look out for them. I really like her characters although the last few books have been a bit over the top. I like the exploration of S and M but it has been taken to new levels with her. I am waiting for her new book to read to see if she has gone back to her better work. She has an amazing imagination.
