Act of Oblivion: A Novel | Robert Harris
post image
Mehso-so

Thought this was going to be an all action chase across counties to find the remaining killers of Charles I, but it just fell a bit flat for me. It wasn‘t all action and some parts were very dull for me. I know it‘s an accurate historical reflection of the time, but there is also a lot of religious stuff!

TrishB Last read of #gladstones 16h
rockpools Oh that‘s a shame. But don‘t we have fab window frames 🖼😁? 16h
TrishB @rockpools going to miss pretty picture backgrounds (amongst other things!) 16h
squirrelbrain Meh, maybe I won‘t bother with this one then! 12h

I enjoyed this one- the father/daughter relationship problems more than the romance issues. Sometimes we speak a different language with our parents.

Vintage Atkinson- If you love her writing, you‘ll love this. Lots of characters and lots of action, expected and unexpected. All delivered with Atkinson‘s usual dry humour.

There‘s not a lot of clues to tell you what this is about. Without giving anything away it‘s about grief. So that was the second book in 10 days about grief for me. The previous one was better (will put in comments).

Oryx No not a sign of it. I know it's silly, when I'm not planning to read it until Gladstone's, but I'd still like to have it. I emailed them about it, and I'm sure I'll just get a stock response about their warehouse. Annoying when you purposely go there instead of Amazon or Tesco 4w

When I spoke to them they weren't even aware at customer service that there was an issue till I spoke to them and they said that it must be something to do with the publishers distribution. I also know that they have had a massive update on their warehouse system and that has messed everything up as well. 4w

5feet.of.fury I find most of hers to be like that. I still read them. Always a Quick read, slightly above average, but characters are forgettable. 1mo
Reggie I did not like this one at all. 1mo
TrishB @Reggie totally understandable! 1mo

Kay makes some very dodgy decisions in this one and there is nearly hell to pay 😁
Was just in the mood for another police procedural!

Promise Me | Harlan Coben

Just when you think you‘ve got it solved. Massive plot twist out of nowhere and one of those wtf/how did that happen moments.
Another great outing with Myron 😁

Cinfhen I can‘t remember each Myron story but I know what to expect… being entertained!!! 1mo
Read4life Absolutely love Myron! 💙 1mo
RaeLovesToRead This was my first ever Harlan Coben and the book that got me back into reading as an adult! 🥰 1mo

TrishB @Cinfhen I‘m always like- you‘re not getting me this time! And the plot twist is always out of the blue! As you say you know what you‘re getting and it‘s entertaining 😁 1mo
TrishB @Read4life me too ♥️ 1mo
TrishB @RaeLovesToRead oh that‘s cool (saying nothing about your first one being the 8th in the series…) 1mo
RaeLovesToRead Haha, I was poorly and on the sofa with nothing to do and this book just happened to be nearby! If it hadn't been so incredibly absorbing, I might not even be a Litten 🤯 I might have an entirely different obsession! 😱😱😱 1mo
TrishB @RaeLovesToRead his books are generally really absorbing! 1mo

There are so many ways society (men) have found to crush women. But women continue to try to hold each other up.
Beautiful writing, if very bleak.

CBee That cover though, it‘s super cool 😍 1mo
LeahBergen That cover is fantastic. 1mo
TrishB @CBee @LeahBergen cool and creepy! 1mo

Centique There‘s such a lot of violence and harm in here isn‘t there 😬 Hard going but hopefully people read it and lose any complacency they have. 1mo

Good read- the MC did annoy me sometimes (hard that she was being betrayed as in her late 30s!) but good secondary characters and storyline.
Thanks Carolyn ❤️

I loved it- thought the characters and the story was great. But I‘m still no nearer actually figuring out the other world- SF, fantasy, dystopian 🤷‍♀️ not a clue. But really enjoyed it.

BarbaraBB Wow, great review. I had it stacked already. Really want to read it! 1mo

I‘m such a sucker for these special editions. Stop with the stickers though!

KristiAhlers Ugh I hate those stickers! And sometimes you can remove them as they start to tear the paper of the cover 🙄 1mo
charl08 Down with stickers. 1mo
Libby1 Sorry. I work at Waterstones. We hate the stickers, too! 1mo

DivineDiana Love the detail not those stickers! 1mo
Bookwomble @Libby1 Asking for a friend: If I ... I mean my friend ... were to ask a Waterstones' bookseller to remove the stickers from a book on the proviso that I - He! - would buy it if the cover was intact afterwards, would they do that for me - Him!? 😐 1mo
Libby1 @Bookwomble I would! Just part of the service. The other day I had someone buy a birthday card and ask me to write the message in it for them. I did. 😀 1mo
Bookwomble @Libby1 Thanks, I'll let my friend know what helpful staff you have 😁 1mo
BarbaraBB Great question @Bookwomble and I love your kindness @Libby1 🤍 1mo
TrishB @Libby1 😘 I can well understand you wouldn‘t like them! 1mo
