In all fairness I couldn‘t write a review as I‘ve never been a fan of Alice. Tried several times over the years to read the original. Thought this might help. It‘s a very good potted version and the drawings are very good. However I‘m still not an Alice fan. For those who are or like graphic novels , this might be for you.

@ReadingDownUnder just love the bookmark .😍😍. Another Aussie read. Don‘t think I‘ve read one of his books before though I‘ve seen many . I enjoyed this read. Great Aussie descriptions as well as characters. Kept me reading and thinking who did it and why.

Recommended by 2 friends. Delightful read. Set in the marshes of North Carolina. A real celebration of nature. I see the authors other books are about wildlife in Africa. This is her first fiction book. It certainly kept me reading.
Strong female character who I fell in love with. It‘s her story.

After reading her latest book I went looking for this one. Found in my favourite op shop. Very enjoyable read as there was so much this old lady could relate to. Wonderful insight for a writer so young. Turns out she is a GP with a passion for women‘s health and care of the elderly. 😊. #2020joybooks

I‘m not a graphic novel fan but apparently got this for partner who is. She didn‘t like it so I read it as I usually like things she doesn‘t . However this book is just ok. Trying to think who I can give it to. Not sure the young people I know would want to read it. Turns out Harriet has MS , has moved I‘m guessing to be near specialists though this is not said. I found the authors note the most interesting part .

Another Aussie read for me. A murder in a small town. The ripples it has and the story of the sister and the journalist . I enjoyed this read. Interesting observations on grief, the media and relationships.

Have the feeling I‘ve read this before. 😊. Did we do it for bookclub @MrsMalaprop ? Finished last night after my big reading day. I knew the ending so I‘m thinking I have read it before. Would be a good holiday read. Teenagers girls and social media, parents and social media. Family dynamics.
