Recommended to Barbara by: BOSTON GLOBE BOOK REVIEW
Read in September, 2011

Although I recently read another book by this author, the library notified me that I should pick up my copy of this, her latest book. I'm always pleased to read Rendell!

Despite my previous statement and my fondness for her books, this was not one of Rendell's best efforts. There was an interesting, unusual collection of characters, but the story did not sustain my interest. Perhaps it's my current mood.

K.D. Absolutely The library dictates what you should read?

Barbara Certainly not, I had ordered it a while ago and it came in before I was quite ready!

message 3: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Ahh, it's okay then. I have some friends who read their favorite authors' works by chronological (based on publication) order. I'd like to do that too but I do not have any specific really-favorite authors. In fact, I'd like to cover as many authors as possible.

Barbara I agree, but I want to read my favorites along with the others.

message 5: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely Yes, I understand. I have to read another Haruki Murakami or Ian McEwan soon. Thanks for reminding me, B!

Cynthia Barbara,

I'm so sad to hear her most recent books aren't as good as her previous books.

I read recently she's 81!
