Not as good as the first, but still important issues discussed (in comments). I didn't get the culprit this time.

I did manage to work out the baddie in this one (which is very rare for me to do), and yes, I like this series too!

Another series started, and I loved it! I didn't get the culprits in this one, and looking forward to reading the next one.

The Wall | Marlen Haushofer

Pickpick

A woman in the Austrian Alps is suddenly surrounded by an invisible wall. Behind the wall the world seems to have come to an end. She lives on in her own little world, surviving with her animals. Despite the apocalyptic setting this book felt somehow soothing. I loved how the woman lives with nature and her animals. Thanks for bringing this to my radar @batsy

sarahbarnes Great review. I loved this one too and felt the same. 🩵🩵 2mo
BarbaraBB @sarahbarnes I loved your review and couldn‘t wait to read it too! 2mo

Hooked_on_books Oooo, that sounds good! 2mo
Lcsmcat Sounds intriguing. Stacking. 2mo
Librarybelle Sounds interesting! 2mo
Tamra I enjoyed the screen adaptation. 2mo
BarbaraBB @Tamra I need to check that out 2mo
Cathythoughts Sounds good. Stacking. 2mo
Anna40 I love Haushofer! She also wrote short stories. I even translated one but the Austrian publisher didn‘t want to give me permission to send it to a literary magazine for publication. Unless they translate her whole collection it will probably remain untranslated :(. She was brilliant. 2mo
batsy Nice review! Yes, there was something soothing and ultimately hopeful about it in a way. Happy you liked it. 2mo
BarbaraBB @Anna40 That is so cool! And such a pity you couldn‘t publish it. I‘d love to read more by her. 2mo
jenniferw88 This was my #blinddatewithabook book last year from Gladstones! 2mo
Rissreads I think I‘ll bump it up my list! Great review! 2mo

It might be the excitement around the nominations for #CampLitsy but I can't get invested in this book and am putting it aside for now. The language, the fact that nothing much happens in the first 100 pages.. I call it quits for now.

Cetus inherited a significant fortune from a total stranger but she is legally unable to share it with anyone else. This is a reality with which she has to deal while enjoying her inheritance. It‘s a compelling setup and the book raises so many questions about greed and wealth and happiness. Quite an original plot! Thank you for bringing it to my attention @TrishB !
