    I've just started reading J.B.Morrison's " the extra ordinary life of FRANK DERRICK AGE 81 " and it's hilarious. Brilliantly funny.
    If i post a comment on a "WIP", LOOK! I'm a reader that's all, and i can only tell how i feel, as a READER, giving/offering feedback. Hoping to learn and grow here. So please, tell me where i'm going wrong.

    Me? I'm just a fly on the wall.

    Look! I'm trying, okay?

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong" Mahatma Gandhi.
    Alas, i am weak.

    I must find a way to Eastbourne and i so wish that i could dance.

    HRF Keating 'The Perfect Murder' the first 'Inspector Ghote' mystery. Not often I give up on a book, but I might on this one. I have no empathy with the main character, and he asks all the wrong questions. There are some long passages that are very repititious and boring, stuff that could be put effectively in a sentence goes on for most of a page, I skim quite a lot. I also find the transcription of 'Indian' talking a bit cliche, it must be hard to represent Indian people talking, but this is a bit stereotypical and annoying.

    I had to take that book back to the library PDQ for all the reasons you mentioned, life’s too short!

    Just finished " Welcome to Nowhere " by Elisabeth Laird.
    A novel set in war-torn Syria , and, to my amazement, actually found myself caring.

    Recommended.

    Now, all I have is a Dick Francis novel. Pulse. Can't think why I brought it home and wondering if I might not find it a bit racey.

    Oh well, here I go.

    Not a phrase I have heard for a while, hope it is 'up to speed' and you do

    Mr.Buckle I was just amusing myself when I said that. Many if not all DF novels, I believe, are set around horse-racing.

    Enjoyed.
