Great comment! Thanks. Glad we agree on this one. I’m now reading and enjoying In the Woods. Lots to look forward to.

Yes I also read Ali’s review. There’s a great one by Kaggsy on Shiny today!
Simon I plan to give her another shot and C and C will be the top of the list. Glad we agree on this one.
Thanks Susan. I love it too.

Depends on your taste I suppose. I thought the German Garden one was a bit wishy washy (I didn’t finish it) - bt it has many fans! I loved this one as you can see.
Thanks for this Susan. I followed this with The Cat's Table, which I enjoyed though not as much. Then I read the English Patient and, like you, admired it but didn't love it. I think your teacher was probably right abut Warlight being his masterpiece.
Dark Puss I thought I'd replied to your comment on the revi9us post but the reply never appeared. I've posted it now - basically it says that I am pretty certain the artist was a woman! Thanks for the suggestion anyway, and I'm glad you ike the cat

Interesting suggestion. But as far as I remember the artist was a woman!

They are standalones so can be read in any order. Enjoy!
Hmmm - I know it had a tag when I first spotted it but can’t find the original reference.

Do read it. I never thought I’d like this series! Look forward to seeing your review.
I've read quite a few and I'm pretty sure that was one of them!
Thanks for this. It's easy to feel helpless.

Yes I agree about the river scenes, Magic. I think I must read The English Patient! Right now I’m in the middle of The Cats Table, which is described as fiction but obviously autographically based.
I agree about Amsterdam, the whole thing was really well done. Yes do put the Trollope on the list. Barchester novels are still my favourite, though.

Thanks Liz. I’m happy to find so many Kingsolver fans out there - why did it take me so long? On the track of cranberry juice, not very easy to find in rural France - a friend is supposed to be getting some for me today.

Thanks for the comments and recommendations. I didn't know about The Bean Trees - definitely one to look out for. I'd also like to know how things went for them after the plan that was made at the end of the novel. Must get hold of The Lacuna and also of course the Poisonwood Bible. I think you'd enjoy a re-read of House of Stairs - I'm pretty sure it was a re-read for me as I read everything of hers when it first came out in those days. But if so I had forgotten it completely.

Thanks for this. I hate taking antibiotics but this infection is getting worse and I'm waiting for the results of a new test tomorrow to see what they can do to treat it. I hate it when authors read their own books on audible - its never a success. Thanks for the recommendations.

Annabel my edition of Big Stone Gap had an extract from the next novel and things didn't seem to have turned out as well as at the beginning. I didn't feel inclined to leave the feel-good feeling I got at the end of this one.

Thanks Joan. I can't imagine why I never happened on Barbara Kingsolver before - I think I had the idea she was a rather 'worthy' novelist but in fact she is immensely readable.

Thanks Karen. I'm looking forward to getting back to Orley Farm!
