The Great Western Beach is a truly remarkable book. Like you Lynne, I loved it.

My substitute Easter Egg was The Song is You by Megan Abbott, although I've not started on it yet.

Happy Easter DGR! I am reading Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. It's a vampire novel and my husband and daughter have both read it, but I am straggling behind. This is so that we can go and see the film at the pictures this weekend - I'll be having nightmares for weeks.

As someone who lives in a Derbyshire ex-mining community, this is one that I will have to read. There's a pub not too far from here which was called The Blackamore but now they've re-named it.

What a fantastic review DGR! I read it grinning from ear to ear as I remembered a holiday in the Lakes where the only way I could get a reluctant teenager up Cat Bells was to say that there was an ice cream van at the top. (I compensated for lack of said ice cream van by taking her for tea and buns in a cafe when we got back down again.)

Perhaps you should next read Dewey: A Small Town, A Library and the World's Most Beloved Cat. (Although I thought the world's most beloved cat was Rocky!)
