I didn’t read as much this last week. I finished the short story collection Lights In the Deep by Brad Torgerson, which I’d been reading for the last few weeks, a story here and there. I rate as just okay. Torgerson has some interesting ideas, but I’m not impressed by his writing. He’s an author I probably won’t read more of. I also finished Fluency by Jennifer Foehner Wells, which sounded good in reviews but I found unimpressive in reading, with clichéd plot and two dimensional characters.
I’m now reading a few more short stories from various collections and Watson’s Choice by Gladys Mitchell, a book which was discussed on a blog recently, possibly for Friday Forgotten Books. It’s a slender classic mystery which I’ll finish in the next few days. Next up is an Inspector Banks novel by Peter Robinson.
Barbara finished reading Ritual by Mo Hayder and is now halfway through another Mark Billingham novel, Death Message. She’s had a pile of things come in from the library, including a recent stand-alone novel by Val McDermid, one of her favorite authors.
