Inspector Cadaver | Georges Simenon
post image

Starting Inspector Cadaver by Georges Simenon, which is Book 25 in the Inspector Maigret Series. I am reading this for a #CenturyofBooks Challenge. This was written in 1943.

Have to say that is one #boringcover.

Tonton I love Maigret! 4d
Andrew65 @Tonton I‘m definitely enjoying this book. 4d

The Inimitable Jeeves | P. G. Wodehouse
post image

Started listening to The Inimitable Jeeves for my #CenturyOfBooks Challenge. This one was first published in 1923.

Pricel101 I read all the Jeeves in the ‘80‘s! Just the right amount of 🙃 silly. I was reading way too much Anthony Burgess & Graham Greene, Jeeves was a breath of fresh air! 7mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I like reading about Jeeves! 7mo
Andrew65 @Pricel101 Definitely a good antidote to Burgess and Greene. 7mo

Palimpsest How are you enjoying the Ellis Peters mysteries? I read two and one I had already seen the movie version of. Do they have to be read in order? I think I didn‘t continue because I wasn‘t finding all of them at half price books and wanted to read them in order of publication. I specifically like that they are historical/ medieval. 7mo
Andrew65 @Palimpsest They are very enjoyable reads, love the tibalries between the monks! I wasn‘t reading them in order and they held up very well, but decided to go back and try reading them in order to see if any underlying themes come through. They are set at a very turbulent time in English History. (edited) 7mo
Palimpsest @Andrew65 thanks! I think I am going to re-visit them. Two of my favorite books are The Name of the Rose and Morality Play, so I‘m happy when I come across books of that ilk. 7mo

Started reading the first book in the Brother Cadfael series, this one was written in 1977. #CenturyofBooks

Aimeesue I looooooove Brother Cadfael. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 7mo
Herschelian I loved the Cadfael books when they were first published. Your post has reminded me, time for a re-read methinks. BTW the BBC made them into a wonderful TV series starring one of our greatest actors Derek Jacobi as Cadfael. 7mo
Freespirit I liked this book alot also❤️I didn‘t realise there was a TV series @Herschelian. Thank you I need to investigate! 7mo

LeahBergen I‘ve read several of these (the first 5 or 6?). They‘re so fun. 7mo
rwmg @Herschelian I thought individual episodes were brilliant, but as a series it was terrible. They did the books in the wrong order (thus ruining the arc following the war and some other arcs which would be spoilers) and the change of Hugh was distracting as well. 7mo
Sarah83 Did you watch the TV series? 7mo
Andrew65 @Sarah83 @Herschelian @rwmg Yes I loved the TV Series and Derek Jacobi was excellent in the role of Cadfael. Great interpretation of the rivalries and friction between the different monks amongst the murders. @Freespirit @Aimeesue @LeahBergen (edited) 7mo

The Virgin in the Ice | Ellis Peters

Started listening to The Virgin In The Ice, the sixth book in the Cadfael Series, this will cover 1982 for me in the #CenturyofBooks Challenge.

Sarah83 I will start this series again.... I own the whole series in German. 😍🎉 7mo
Andrew65 @Sarah83 They are good reads. 😊 7mo
Sarah83 @Andrew65 I read, I think, the first ten books about fifteen years ago. I should finish the series. 😍 7mo

Andrew65 @Sarah83 I‘m hoping to get through a few of the series this year. Got 3 planned for this month alone. 7mo
rwmg So sad she didn't have time to finish the series. She wrote the last one but didn't have time to cover the whole war. All you series authors out there, write faster - you never know. 7mo
Andrew65 @rwmg Yes very sad. Similar things happened to Sue Grafton in the alphabet series - only got to Y. 7mo

Finally getting round to a book that has been stuck on my shelf for years, Book 4 in the Inspector Morse series. It was the tv programme Morse that helped develop my love for crime fiction. Reading this to cover 1979 in my #CenturyofBooks Challenge.
