I‘ve started rereading this (for the umpteenth time), but this time I‘ve decided to listen to it. I want to compare it while I‘m reading the Swedish edition*, which is double the length so I can pick up the differences in real time. The Swedish edition is a chunkster, so I‘m hoping this will be enough of a head start to finish for #scarathlon. #teamslaughter #chunksterchallenge2022 @Clwojick @Amiable

I finally finished my Q3 #chunksterchallenge2022 pick! ✔️
I love Stephen King; he writes characters so well (including Kojak aka Big Steve) and I love how minor characters pop back up in Book 3. This won‘t be my favorite by him, but I really did enjoy it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Amiable Yay! Another one checked off the Chunkster list! 1w

Bk8 of September & Bk2 of #SuperSeptember #readathon is done. Yes! All 1,012pgs of it🙌The 6th Strike books, it was a bit hard to follow at times with transcripts of 3 simultaneous chats from a game side by side, but once you get used to that it was a pretty good story. I did enjoy Troubled Blood more but this was well worth the read too if only for the relationship between Strike & Robin. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #ChunksterChallenge2022

TheSpineView Just finished this book too. Totally agree with you. 1w
MyNamesParadise I own the entire series and I haven‘t read any of them!! I want to it‘s just newer stuff keeps coming in at the library for me. I have a problem lol! 1w
Andrew65 Fantastic time, especially with flu. 👏👏👏 Got my flu jab on Tuesday. 1w

Lizpixie @TheSpineView it‘ll be interesting to see how that develops in the next one. Though it took 7 books for Hermione & Ron to get together didn‘t it?😋 1w
Lizpixie @MyNamesParadise my daughter @Ciara_Rosey made me start reading the series so she‘d have someone to talk to about it! But it‘s been a pretty good series so far, I love Strike & Robin is also a great MC. Now there‘s Pat the office manager(everyone knows a Pat don‘t they?)& the others like Barclay & Midge. Great roundup of personalities. 1w
Lizpixie @Andrew65 thanks lovely! I read through my pain, helped keep my mind off it, though it didn‘t do my headache any favours🙄Haven‘t had my jab yet this year or my booster. Really should go up and get them. Especially now as above👆daughter has finally got Covid for the 1st time! 1w
Andrew65 @Lizpixie sorry to hear about your daughter. Not booked my Autumn Covid jab yet or the pneumonia jab I‘ve been recommended to have given my immunosuppressing medication. 1w
Lizpixie @Andrew65 I had the pneumonia jab 2yrs ago, I think I‘m due again next year(pretty sure it‘s every 3yrs)Definitely helped I think, even bad colds & flu didn‘t really last long or go to my lungs too much. Anything that helps when your immunity is compromised👍 1w
TheSpineView @Lizpixie IK! The wait is killing me! I just hope that it doesn't take one of getting seriously injured, serious as in could die, before they will admit to each other how they feel. 1w
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 1w

Bk7 of September & Bk1 of #SuperSeptember #readathon is done! I can‘t believe I finished 944pg in 3 days.Go me🙌I really enjoyed this, I have to say, it‘s my favourite Strike book so far.The killers identity came completely out of left field honestly, I had no clue! Loved the cold case,the cop going off his tree & seeing the occult in the case, helped the killer out tremendously he did. 4.5⭐️ #SeriesRead2022 #ChunksterChallenge2022 #BookspinBingo

TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! You are definitely back in the groove now!!! 2w
Andrew65 Great to see this 👏👏👏 2w

I managed 3 1/2hrs since midnight of this #chunksterchallenge2022 book for the #SuperSeptember #readathon before crashing with a book on my face on the library chair! Am planning on relocating to bed for a few hrs before resuming said book, hopefully finishing it by tomorrow morning. Or is that too optimistic? Night everyone!👋😴

Andrew65 A good start 👏👏👏 2w

JenReadsAlot @MommyOfTwo yep I should have stuck with the musical! 4w
Amiable OMG, my husband and son still laugh at me because I forced myself through this book and complained about it the whole way! I just kept saying, why??? There was so much about the plot that made no sense. 4w
JenReadsAlot @Amiable seriously! Hoping my pick for next year will be a winner!! 4w
