Gorky Park | Martin Cruz Smith

Waited for a long time to read this book, was really looking forward to it and then it fell flat! 😢

OriginalCyn620 I‘ve never read it but it does sound good! Of course, that doesn‘t mean it actually is! 3d
Andrew65 @OriginalCyn620 Loads of people do like it it just didn‘t work for me. 4.04 rating on Goodreads but only a rating of 2 for me. 3d
EadieB @Andrew65 I remember when we read Gorky Park. It was a big disappointment! 3d
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes very disappointing unfortunately. 2d

Around a year ago (maybe more) I had this from the library and only read the first chapter before it was due back. I forgot I'd had it on hold for ages until it popped up on my kindle this evening. I'm really looking forward to this. #CurrentRead

A friend of mine read this years ago and thought it was such an amazing story..

In 1959, a group of experienced hikers set out in the Russian aural Mountains. Months later, their bodies were discovered #frozen and in such an odd and mysterious way that so many theories abound. I know I want to read this, though something tells me I‘d have to read it in the daylight, since some theories are a little unsettling. #Movember

Hooked_on_books I have this and you‘ve made me want to move it up the TBR. 5d
valeriegeary Oh my gosh! A friend was telling me about this incident when we were hiking in the woods! I have to read this book! 5d

As I often say, a good story, well told. I‘m not exactly blown away, but it‘s a well written, well paced story.

This National Bestseller book written by Katherine Arden was an awesome read. It takes place in Russian Wilderness in the middle of winter. This story is about a young girl named Vasilisa who must dig deep and bring about dangerous gifts that she had kept hidden to keep her village safe from evil. I think this would be a great book for a literature circle in a 5th grade or middle school classroom. #ucflae3414f19

I just finished the book and then watched the movie. A great book about the investigation into a serial killer in 1953 Moscow, when murders were covered up by the state and blamed on the less "desirables" of that time. The movie added some visuals to the story but so much was left out, as is usually the case with the movie vs.book. I would give both ??

mdm139 But Tom Hardy🥰 1w
KathyWheeler Excellent book and movie. Did you see Citizen X, which is about the same case? It‘s good too. 1w
Djspens @KathyWheeler no I haven't, I'll have to check it out! 6d

The Romanovs: 1613-1918 | Simon Sebag Montefiore

2 books on the go currently; I‘ll finish In the Wilderness and continue with the tagged book, which is a bit of a chunkster at almost 800 pages.

I‘m getting the Carolina book from the library tomorrow and hope to start the Doig too.

All of these are for #nfnov so I might need some fiction too, but that depends on my mood....

Cinfhen Bastard out of Carolina is meant to be VERY HEAVY!!! FluffyFiction might be necessary ☺️ 1w
TrishB I have Carolina on the tbr - been there a while and can‘t bring myself to read! I‘ll await your review. 1w
Cathythoughts Carolina‘s title scares me .... (edited) 1w

megnews I‘ve started Bastard out of Carolina twice and didn‘t get far. It wasn‘t the book. I think it wasn‘t time yet. But it‘s one I must get to. 1w
julesG Keep at least one fluffy read at hand. Maybe 1w
squirrelbrain Oh gosh, you‘ve put me off a bit @Cinfhen @TrishB @Balibee146 @megnews - I‘m not sure I‘m in the mood for heavy. The library also has some Pat Conroy books, which seem to be set in SC. I may look at those instead.... 1w
squirrelbrain @julesG 🤣🤣🤣 1w
squirrelbrain @Birdsong28 - enjoying it so far. It took a while to get into it but then picked up nicely.... 1w
BarbaraBB Oops! I didn‘t know that it was so heavy when mentioning 1w
Cinfhen Pat Conroy is probably a gentler choice 💕💕💕 1w
