In reading, I finished up 2016 with the (oft mentioned recently) MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part V: Christmas Adventures. If you enjoy Holmes patiches, those set in the original time and place, with the feel of the one written by Conan Doyle himself, you couldn’t go far wrong with these MX anthologies. I also read Lucky Bastard, an autobiography by sports announcer Joe Buck.
I started 2017 by re-reading Rudyard Kipling’s Captains Courageous. Not as good as I remembered from my youth. Also, I’m still dipping into the collection Jo Gar by Roul Whitefield.
Barbara has finished Those We Left Behind Stuart Neville, a stand alone novel. She said the book was well written, but the subject matter was tough, with children both victims and perps. The outcome was predictable. She might read another by Neville, but she’s not in a hurry to do so.
She has begun reading The Great Swindle by Pierre Lemaître. It’s a stand-alone by the author of the Murder Squad books that she’s been enjoying very much.
So how about you?
