Got this on a whim and it‘s already hitting me in a spot I didn‘t know I needed - thanks Guys.
The best impulse purchase I‘ve made in a while! I love all things pulpy and low-brow in the book world so I‘m excited to sink my fangs into this one!
Been dipping into audiobooks lately, and this familiar friend was not only continues to be a lovely rainy-day read, but was beautifully read by actor (and literary nerd) Dan Stevens. While Murder on the Orient Express is not my favorite Christie, it is certainly one of her most enduring books, and one of the best in the genre.
I‘ve read some of Milne‘s plays and enjoyed them, but I‘m delighted to discover this excellent addition to the mystery genre from him as well. If you enjoy Christie and Chesterton and their fellows, then The Red House Mystery will be another enjoyable romp through the murder-riddled English countryside!
I‘ve been loving Meddling Kids, not only as a teen-detective oops-maybe-the-monsters-are-real pastiche (which it perfectly is), but also for its beautiful exploration of how the skills and traumas of childhood define you - or don‘t - as an adult. And the writing is gorgeous.
