Finished She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Yes, indeed a very sad and depressing story.


Next on The Narrow Road to the Deep North. My colleagues keep telling me my choice of books is rather depressing.

My book club read this month was "The Harvey Girls" It was Ok, but a bit repetitive. For fun, I am reading "Blessed are the Dead" by Kristy Belcamino, from my local library.

But his writing! How is it a man can write about women with such knowledge?? I unfortunately could identify with this book...thought it wonderful in dealing with the subject matter.

Have you read his other works?

Sharp Objects just became available from the library, so I'll switch over and read that first.

Thank you for mentioning this book. I bought it in hardback and am only about 1/4 of the way through it but it is so wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time. It's one of those books that make you annoyed that you can't just sit and read it all the way through because other things in life need tending to.

No, this was my first book by Lamb. It was very moving and I will check out his other works.


The Narrow Road to the Deep North is quite a piece of work for me. Like Cormac McCarthy the author seems to dislike punctuation marks and I have a hard time to follow the gist. I'm only 50 pages in and need to re-read paragraphs from time to time because my mind starts to wander I hope it's getting better.

How to Build a Car by Adrian Newey. Newey is a legendary British Formula One engineer. It is quite interesting.
