Good, twisty thriller - definitely didn‘t guess the big twist. Enjoyed this read 👍🏻

Cathythoughts Sounds good ♥️👍🏻 21h
TrishB @Cathythoughts it was a good one (it‘s a very saturated market and they‘re not always well written - this one was!) 21h

Little: A Novel | Edward Carey

Pickpick

What a strange book....I think I liked it because I couldn‘t put it down and really wanted to know what happened. I‘ve been googling Madam Tussaud and a lot of things in the book are definitely for the novels benefit and not necessarily backed up by facts. Saying that it was a fascinating, weird read.
My interest was piqued yesterday Cindy and Cathy! I can see how this wouldn‘t be for everyone.

Cathythoughts I‘m so glad you like it ! I can‘t believe you have it done & dusted.... you are a humdinger of a reader 😘 3d

Thanks to @Cathythoughts and @andrew61 for bringing this one to my attention!
A heart breaking story at the centre and lots of tough stories about the trials and tribulations these women have gone through. But a compelling look at families and supporting and getting each other through things.
Awesome read, tough themes.

I nearly gave up initially, the writing and the dialect are hard work to start with and I think sometimes I‘m a bit lazy and put them aside quite quickly. But I persevered and got into the rhythm of the writing at about 50 pages. The story, both the personal and the historical, are amazing and important. A gay love story, set against the backdrop of political upheaval in 1916 Ireland, you learn a lot about both.
Worth the effort.

Hard to say this was an enjoyable read because of the subject matter. But I think it‘s a fantastic debut and I‘m a bit in awe that the author is only 25.
There are lots of sub plots with various POV, but I think it works well reflecting the chaotic, messy lives of the characters.
Can‘t wait to see what the author does next.

Katerina I'll put it on my wish list. I need a bit of contrast to my fantasy reading. 2w

TrishB @Lynnsoprano @KarenUK @MamaGina @batsy @BarbaraBB @arlenefinnigan it was awesome ❤️❤️ Mo‘s t shirt was the best and so true! 2w
TrishB @squirrelbrain sadly we did 3-0, 5-0 and win on penalties!! But 🤷‍♀️ doesn‘t seem to matter now. 2w
TrishB @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB team may be in the final too - but it will be in Madrid not Amsterdam. I‘ve been looking at flight costs this morning 😱😱 2w
TrishB @MicheleinPhilly thank you 😘 2w
Cinfhen I heard flights are insane!!! 2w
BarbaraBB Mo‘s shirt was awesome ❤️ 2w
TrishB @Cinfhen 770 cheapest at the moment! 2w
squirrelbrain @TrishB - so close with the bets. You‘d have been able to afford the flights then! 2w
andrew61 Even though im at the other end of the mersey i am really pleased. I really like klopp, wish he was at old Trafford, and im sure Tommy smith will be cheering. I grew up jumping for joy when stuart pearson scored in the fa cup then equally cheered a week later when Liverpool lifted the European cup. 2w
TrishB @andrew61 I remember that well! 2w

TrishB @Bookworm04 I read quite quickly especially if I have a couple of free hours. It‘s how much you enjoy it that counts though 👍🏻 2w

Sorry Cindy 😔 I‘ve read another 50 pages since I got up and I‘m now in that hate mode of snarling when I look at it!
I‘m not getting what everyone likes and I‘m admitting defeat.
Clever (too), complicated, confusing and I‘m just bored now.
Hope you enjoy the rest 😘 I‘m a bad buddy read person!!

squirrelbrain Ooh dear, snarling at a book... definitely NOT good 🤣. I have this on my TBR shelf but it was a charity shop cheapie so I won‘t mind if I don‘t like it.... 2w
julesG I read this as an ARC and quite enjoyed it. Reminded me of Groundhog Day, just with a weird twist. 2w

rmaclean4 I had to muscle through this one...it was not worth it to me. 2w
erzascarletbookgasm Oh dear, I‘m aware this book has mixed opinions, that‘s why I‘m reluctant to start it yet. 2w
TrishB @Jinster @rachaich @Cathythoughts @erzascarletbookgasm I would always say have a read as you might love it! Plenty of good reviews on here too. 2w
TrishB @Emilymdxn 👍🏻 2w
TrishB @rmaclean4 I don‘t muscle through anymore! Too many books... 2w
Mariposa_Bookworm I‘ve created a list in GoodReads called Bailed and Abandoned. It helps me give myself permission to bail on a book. Maybe I‘ll go back to it, Maybe I won‘t. Either way, it‘s ok. 🤓 2w
Kaye The older I get, the faster I bail. If a book doesn‘t interest me, I toss it. My reading days are growing shorter every day so I choose not to waste them on books I‘m not liking. . I keep looking to search for something that snags me from the beginning. 2w
TrishB @Mariposa_Bookworm @Kaye totally agree. I never used to bail but what‘s the point if you‘re not enjoying it! 🤷‍♀️ 2w

Just starting this for a buddy read with Cindy 😁 forget I had a lovely signed edition from Goldsboro when I was in the monthly book club.

rjsthumbelina I loved this one! Such a unique idea for a storyline. I kept thinking about how crazy difficult it must have been for Stuart Turton to keep everything straight while he was writing. Enjoy! 3w

I really enjoyed this and learned a lot about the culture of this particular part of China. A good reflection on the pace of change and the challenges and clashes of different cultures.

Jee_HookedOnBookz I enjoyed this too! Did you cry at the end? I bawled like a baby 😭 2w
TrishB @Jee_HookedOnBookz just a little tear! But I was relieved as I wanted it to end like that! 2w

I‘m not really into books that are just romance, but there‘s a lot more in this. Charlie coming to terms with his parents breaking up, his dad being an arse and his mum falling in love with another woman. It‘s the 1950s and such things are shunned!
Well written throughout and moving in places.
