Listening to Ese Edugyan's Half Blood Blues, 2011, and it's o.k. but I cannot follow it - it seems plotless. I'll finish it but don't understand why it won so many awards.

But, I am really liking Mother's Milk, the 4th Patrick Melrose book by Edward St Aubyn. He is such a good writer and the characters are not quite so hateful as the previous three books.

Listened to the latest book by Louise Penny,The Beautiful Mystery: A Chief Inspector Gamache Novel, 2012. It was good, a bit long, but still good. Interesting setting and the same trusty characters.

Standing in another man's grave by Ian Rankin, 2012, was good too. Rebus was back! Fox was not really there, not sure why he was in the book at all unless he's setting him up for the next book. Anyway, Ian Rankin is writing well and it was a good read.
