Most Read This Week In Mystery
Mystery fiction is a loosely-defined term that is often used as a synonym of detective fiction — in other words a novel or short story in which a detective (either professional or amateur) solves a crime. The term "mystery fiction" may sometimes be limited to the subset of detective stories in which the emphasis is on the puzzle element and its logical solution (cf. whodunit), as a contrast to hardboiled detective stories which focus on action and gritty realism. However, in more general usage "mystery" may be used to describe any form of crime fiction, even if there is no mystery to be solved ...more
“ No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. ”
“ The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day. —"Old Man's Advice to Youth: 'Never Lose a Holy Curiosity.'" LIFE Magazine (2 May 1955) p. 64 ”

[close] We are a Facebook based Book Club that is expanding into Goodreads to grow our group numbers. Each month we vote on a genre and then let all the members throw out book ideas for that genre. Admin then narrows it down to about 6-7 books and we let members vote on our next month read! Genre rotates each month and cannot be the same as the month prior.

[close] Do you love mysteries written in the "English" style? Why not come and join us? We are an established group of mystery readers, which has just re-launched in 2020. We read and share about every sort of English mystery, and have an optional group read once a month. We read from the "Golden Age" novels of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers to the "cosy mysteries" of Simon Brett; through series and stand-alone quick to read "whodunits", to bang up to date modern lengthy novels, heavy on the psychology. You might prefer Ruth Rendell, P.D. James, Colin Dexter, or Kate Atkinson ... or a myriad of others. Or perhaps you like the classic 19th century mysteries by Wilkie Collins or featuring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes? Whatever your personal choice, you will find fellow aficionados here. Welcome!
