Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Hosted by Sheila from Book Journey, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind.

Finished Last Week:

The Black Country by Alex Grecian The Purchase by Linda Spalding

Did Not Finish:

A Delicate Truth by John le Carre


This is my second attempt at listening to a le Carré novel. I do love his writing and his stories, so I always think that they are going to be worthwhile audios. This is just not so. He narrates his own stories and is so slow and deliberate, he makes even the most exciting scenes incredibly boring. In addition, the mouth sounds and whistling over any sibilant letters is enough make me cringe while listening. In fact, I gave it one hour while driving to and from work, and I still found myself wincing at the sounds that were coming through the speakers. So, this might be a fantastic thriller/mystery, but I am done with trying to listen to John le Carré via audio.
