Finely observed novel about people and places specifically set in the regional English town of Peterborough. Unfortunate mis-categorisation as a ghost story - this novel uses the device of being the soul of recently deceased 36 year old Lisa Evans school teacher. How she died and the stories of other characters she follows fascinating insights into owing to minute sympathetic observations of others lives... ultimately a book about the different forms of love. Highly recommended Scooter.

The narration by Humphrey Bower really brings this book to life with its myriad of characters from all classes and walks of life in 19th century London.

A man losing chunks of memory reflects on love life and a moment in time that destroyed a family. Echoes look at each other trying to make sense to pull the threads of a case together. What if one can solve the case after 35 years Most of the people affected are no more there is no closure for detectives or those on the way. The original crime may have been done out of a love that was wrong but strong. Mahershala Ali is tough yet vulnerable as he strives to make sense of the enigma that resists detective work. Steven Dorff is great as his partner but Carmen Ejogo steals scenes as the wife to be wife of Ali who represents another world one with a layer of decency and sophistication that demands he reciprocate. The acting is strong and the writing adapted to slow reveals of a society traumatised by inexplicable loss.

OK for a summer read. There's a lot going on in a drought-stricken rural town. The protagonist is a man with demons in his past & a complicated relationship with his hands. Metadata features as do Dr Seuss-like names - the Snouches of Springfield Mandalay Blonde.
There is a Pale Blue Crochet Coathanger Cover moment 'Jason He's not a bikie. He's an invalid with a Yamaha.'

A little hatred / Joe Abercrombie.

What an acerbic wit that looks at both individual character and character of society. The scene where the head of fashion has to crawl and go from being fashionable to deliberately not says a lot both about controlling themes of fashion and surviving in societies of various sorts. This is the beginning of a new cycle in his First Law world where he wisely keeps the same world but pushes the world a generation into the future with the new systemic evil of the industrial revolution where society is vicious to itself while it changes. Favourite parts tend to be the north because of the fatalistic brutality and an old world struggling to become new and certain characters. Yes Orso the Crown Prince is a hollow reed but does it reflect how society has made him a hollow reed Survival is what binds this world together.

Four comics three don't work one works very well. Wicklow Way points out the peccadilloes of hiking the joys the whatevers the needing to do a 180 on your walk. The style is laconic and sparse which suits the subject matter. Laconic and sparse does not work with the others. Often was gasping for meaning. Relied on the reader to supply too much meaning between the comic book frames. The stories did not go anywhere so I lost interest.

Wow a surprise ending. Apologies but minor spoilers. As epitomised as where Walkers go from horrors to sideshow exhibit. This is one of the better comics in the series as the story arc of Rick Grimes is complete and so they can play around with plot and character leaving issues hanging such as with this brave new world with brave new characters bearing the seed of their own destruction Artwork and story more upbeat to indicate a brighter future where we have to keep on living.

A fascinating account of the making of a film. A very raw account at that with all the risk dirt and detours. It was a joy to see that it was a story of forgiveness in a country that is described as a nation of widows.
