JulieLaLa
JulieLaLa is 6% done with Jane and the Unpleasantness at Scargrave Manor (Jane Austen Mysteries, #1)
I believe I am enjoying this (so far). The writing is very good in its attempt to emulate Jane Austen's writing, without being tedious or pretentious.

Me: "Is it getting scary? Knock once for yes, twice for no."
spirit: KNOCK
Me: "Is Mr. King the master of suspense?"
spirit: KNOCK
me: "Will I be able to keep reading this AND be able to sleep soundly at night?"
spirit: KNOCK. KNOCK-KNOCK
Me: EEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

The build-up to scary is very low-key and effective!

Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple, #1)

JulieLaLa
JulieLaLa is on page 50 of 620 of 1918: War and Peace
Ugh! There's no cohesiveness and no proper build-up to why the war started. We're just dropped in it with nothing to hold on to! Will give it a longer go, though.

I'm reading an edition published the year it came out, 1953, and I'm enjoying it tremendously! Great writing, great characters - for my first Agatha Christie, this is a strong entry!
