Here we go! First thoughts on this highly voted for read :)

The Dry by Jane Harper


Carolyn | 1473 comments I have to admit to accidently starting this last month as part of another challenge, so I can comment that it starts off very well!

Yes I noticed you'd stalled it when you saw it was likely to win the vote :)

This might have to be a rather expensive Kindle purchase. (I hate having to spend over $10 for an ebook!)
There are four copies at the library all out till the third week in August and 12 people waiting. Not a hope for me there:)

Indeed, Brenda and Phrynne, that's where I bought my copy. Big W is having a special on books at present. I was 14th in a line of 19 for the copies at my library corporation! The library staff even sent me an SMS to apologise for the length of the queue! I also picked up the new Liane Moriarty at that price...sweet!

I saw that but no Big W near me. The Kindle version is $11 so still cheaper. QBD had it on special the other day but I missed it:(

Save it until the 13th Phrynne when we're all in town together ;)

The worst thing was I nominated it Brenda so I felt a bit silly when it looked like it was winning the poll!

I pre-ordered my kindle version so I think it was a bit cheaper.

Oh really? Well that's good anyway :) I don't mind paying $16 for a "real" book but don't agree with some of the over inflated prices of new releases on ebook I'm afraid!

Started this one this morning. Really enjoying it! I get where the title comes from now too :)


Kerri | 71 comments Started this one last night, I'm finding it very quick to read, I'm enjoying it so far.


MaryG2E (goodreadscommaryg2e) Roughly one third of the way through this book, and I'm loving it. Very accessible writing, easy to read, and engaging my imagination as I absorb all the cryptic clues about what's gone on, both in the present and the past...

I'll be interested to see what she produces next!


MaryG2E (goodreadscommaryg2e) An exceptionally fine crime novel. Loved it!

Great Mary! Especially with it being a debut too!

Indeed Brenda, what a spectacular start to her career as a novelist. I only hope she can keep up the standard. A tough ask, as the standard in The Dry is so high.

You're right - but I'm sure her next will be brilliant too! I guess we will see :)

I am about half way and enjoying it. I think my husband will like it too!
