When Eight Bells Toll | Alistair MacLean
Pickpick

A solid, enjoyable thriller from Alistair MacLean. I especially liked the setting (the Western Highlands of Scotland), the dry-witted narrator, and the helicopter flying 😄 And many thanks to @dsfisher for taking a picture of the last page of her copy to replace the badly torn last page of my copy 😊

Wow! I‘d hate to get to the end of the book and see that. Here‘s what you are missing.

rabbitprincess Thank you! 💙 I've saved a screenshot. Now to add this book to my on-deck pile 😉 1y

@dsfisher here's what my beleaguered last page looks like 🙁 Just the last three paragraphs are missing, it seems. I don't think they contain any crucial plot elements, but still.

tournevis Gah! 1y
rabbitprincess @tournevis That was pretty much my reaction as well! 😨 1y

For #EightDaysAWeek I went with a book that had "eight" in the title. I like the cover blurb: "Now a superb film from Winkas Film Productions". Superb ?

dsfisher Can‘t go wrong with Alistair. 1y
rabbitprincess @dsfisher It will certainly be suspenseful...the last page of my copy is shredded, like it got stuck in a printer jam ☹️ 1y
dsfisher Oh no! Do I need to do a photo? I have the 1966 US book club edition so not sure what you are missing. @rabbitprincess (edited) 1y
rabbitprincess @dsfisher I'll take a picture of my page so you can see how it's damaged. It is a retired library copy...I wonder if the card catalogue sleeve was on the back of the last page rather than the inside back cover and someone did a bad job of ripping it off. 1y
