Ann its really surprising me that Im not the only one not to have read it. I think people are so hung up on Dalgleish that they whizz through those not looking to left or right!

Just received an email purporting to be from you but it didn't sound at all like you, Has someone hacked your account?

Yes indeed Susan - he is amazingly talented and also enviably prolific. These would be perfect for Christmas presents, but do try them yourself as well!
Do try both these Ali - they are really enjoyable.
It is Kay - Im sure youll love them both.
Thanks Helen. What a coincidence. I didnt guess the murderer at all and loved all the twists and turns. Great novel.
Its a winner, Kaggsy - I now want to find the small number of other novels!
Thanks Barry. I will check out your blog!

Great review! This sounds brilliant - I must admit I didn't manage to finish Jonathan Strange, but I love the sound the female monsters and I love a bit of intertextuality and literary games.
Nice thought, Jane!

Glad you like it! I get the impression most people prefer the Victorian ones.

You are quite right Kaggsy - it is a really comforting and uplifting book. And yes now so easy to get hold of if you can bear to read it as an ebook - I read them on my phone, not ideal, but you can get into the swing of it.
Joan you are like me, catching up later in life. She was a wonderful writer - I have more of hers to read and hope to do so soon.
Interesting thought! And I see exactly what you mean. Do re-read - Im sure youll love it just as much.
Melanie I know Im going to want to re-read it myself before too long! Its a winner.
It is a lovely novel, Liz. I read it as an ebook for only 49p., if you're tempted!
So glad you agree Carol. They deserve to be much better known.
