  1. A boy and his dog at the end of the world is in the kindle sale today. If you like post apocalyptic fiction then it's a must. It's excellent.
  2. 9. Days without end by Sebastian Barry. Two young men struggle to survive the American civil war, protect a native American girl from harm and find a life together. It was deeply moving and its depiction of war was brutal and terrifying.
  3. 7. Bone China by Laura Purcell Like her first book, the silent companions, this is a gothic horror story set in early 19th century Cornwall. It dripped with atmosphere and was very enjoyable.
  4. A boy and his dog at the end of the world by C. A Fletcher.... This was my fifth book of 2020 and probably my favourite. At least a hundred years after the absolute downfall of society a boy named Griz leaves his small Scottish Island he shares with his family and travels across the ruins of Britain to find his stolen dog.
  5. I recently finished this. Also very much enjoyed it and I would highly recommend it.
  6. 2. The Nickel boys by Colson Whitehead. The story of a reform school and the horrors inflicted upon the young boys there. Its on lots of best of 2019 lists and that is well justified. It's only a few hundred pages do can be read in a few days but the effect of it lasts a lot longer.
  7. The Wall by John Lanchester... Set in the near future UK after some global climate catastrophe, a Wall has been built around the whole coastline of the UK to keep out the others. I really enjoyed it and as obviously apt as it is for present events, it's also a cracking book in and of itself.
  8. Station eleven is also on sale for 99p, for the few who haven't read it, do so.
  9. Finished Atwoods The Testaments. Thoroughly enjoyed it and in many respects I enjoyed it more than the Handmaid. Also finished second sleep by Robert Harris which had some similar themes to the testaments, and was equally readable. I very much recommend both.
  10. The "quite possibly" is completely unnecessary.
  11. I was and have until today remained convinced that I was the best super tennis player in the world. I no longer think that.
  12. The lost man by Jane Harper is 99p today. Its a crime story set in the outback and its excellent.
  13. Rather tempted by snooker 19 which has appeared on the shop. Seems to have good reviews on other formats and I imagine snooker works well on handheld.
  14. Senlin ascends is excellent. Red Mars/blue mars/green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson I would recommend.
  15. You're not alone. I regularly get to act 2 boss but haven't got past that point also even though I always appear well stocked for attack cards going in, when they break out the 35 or so damage I'm screwed.
