Great fun

There's some laugh-out-loud moments in this book. The characters are great too. I very much look forward to the next installment.

Beautifully written

This is an evocative, compelling story. The descriptions, although beautifully done, did at times take precedent over the plot. It's the only reason I give four stars instead of five.

I've downloaded loads onto my kindle. First in line is the latest Jeffrey Archer, then the entire Harry Potter series. If that doesn't last me, I have a Jodi Ellen Malpas to read as well.

“You should date a girl who reads.
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she has found the book she wants. You see that weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a secondhand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow and worn.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

Buy her another cup of coffee.

Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas, for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry and in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

She has to give it a shot somehow.

Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who read understand that all things must come to end, but that you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

Or better yet, date a girl who writes.”

Tom Greer Hi, thanks for friending me on Goodreads. My new crime novel, Death Comes Calling, is now available from Kindle ebook and paperback form, so please feel free to take a look via the Amazon UK link at the bottom.

The Kindle price is £2.99 and the paperback price is £9.32.

A successful career woman is found dead on the floor of her North London kitchen with her throat brutally slashed. Beside the body lies a half-open razor with a single droplet of blood at the tip of an otherwise pristine blade.

However, the forensics prove this razor can’t be the murder weapon, and when another successful career woman is found murdered a few days later, again in her kitchen, again with her throat cut and again with a blood-tipped half-open razor placed beside her body, Detective Chief Inspector John Gore of the Metropolitan Police fears he has a potential serial killer on his hands.

As the body count rises the pressure is mounting on Gore to quickly find and stop the killer.

Meanwhile someone is sending him taunting notes, each headed, Death Comes Calling, and Gore begins to realise the killer is playing mind games not just with the police, but with him personally. The question is…why?


Thanks, Tom.
