You really should, Annabel -- its brilliant!
Yes Liz it is so brilliant. I've tried a couple of his other novels and haven't liked them as much, but he was obviously a terrific writer.
Oh Claire I hope you do. Everyone should read it!!!
Well done indeed and many thanks!

Yes, I wondered that when I got the point about Hamlet, but obviously it isnt, though it could easily have been. I havent read any of them, apart from an attempt at Shylock, which I didnt like.

Im just about to start the second in the series myself, Carol. Really looking forward to it. Glad to hear you loved it!
Glad to find a fellow fan Carol and great to have discovered a new series. Lots still to look forward to.
Hope you love Longbourn Susan. I was really impressed with it.
Im not a lover of spin-offs either Helen. But I did love Longbourn. Now and again they can be really good, obviously.
Its great to have discovered it! and yes Fiona is an excellent character. I love Nicola Upson too.
The TV series was pretty memorable, Helen. But the book is even better needless to say. Sicily is wonderful - well worth a visit.
Yes indeed Virginia Daughter of Time is amazing. Its ages since I read it, but it had me totally convinced. Time I dug that one out - thanks for the reminder.
It is a great novel Lyn - glad it worked well on audio too. Ive just discovered the TV version on YOuTube and have been watching that - pretty true to the book and well worth a look.
Marvell is one of my favourite poets and this is a lovely poem. Your analysis is spot on too. Thanks!

So glad you are loving it Joan. The characters get easier to sort out as time goes on. My edition had a family tree to refer to. You have so much to look forward to! Sent from my iPhone
Iceland always sounds as if it would be icy, but I guess it isn't. I'm welcoming the warm weather after such a ropey start to the summer.

Goodness that does sound hot. I love hot weather and am sorry the autumn will be here soon, but apple pie weather makes it sound more appealing!

Yes Ali I have seen good reports of Olive Kitteridge. Definitely one Id like to read. Im sure this one is right up your street.
Thanks Angela. Im sure youll love it.
No it wasnt hard to follow - the reader did well and it was all very clear. Poor Jessie Burton - she does seem to have suffered from her success.

Thanks Jane. I like it too -- she was a great painter.

I wouldnt mind 80 degrees at the moment, but I can see it would get a bit tiring. I do love the sun though and this summer we havent seen enough of it.

The sun just when youd rather not have had it Liz! But it does lift the spirits.
