This is the first Inspector Banks book I have read. The villain was obvious to me half way thru, and I felt Banks and company were slow to act on what I saw as obvious clues. Nonetheless I enjoyed it, and will search out another Inspector Banks tale ...more

Finished the reread of Drums of Autumn, in preparation for its appearance on Starz Outlander Season 4. Time to think it over during the next Droughtlander we will experience when Season 3 ends shortly! I wonder how Starz/Sony will portray the scenari ...more
Jean Gobel added a status update: Perhaps the seventh or eighth read of this volume. Two-thirds thru, reaching the point where I become very unhappy with JAMMF. I wonder how Starz/Ron Miller will handle this book in the fourth season on TV......

Yann Martel
“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Dorothy Dunnett
“Don't you know, even yet, why I came back to Orkney?" Rognvald said.
Than Thorfinn looked up. Rognvald's gaze, waiting for his, took and sustained it. Thorfinn did not look away, but his face held no expression.
Rognvald said "I am the dog at your heel. Everything I have ever done has been an attempt to be like Thorfinn.”
Dorothy Dunnett, King Hereafter

Alexandre Dumas
“There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
" Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, 'Wait and Hope.”
Alexandre Dumas
