irritating book, good bokks

The Paying Guests, by Sarah Waters, 2014. Gave up half way through, after 10 hours of listening. Not a character that I was interested in or cared if bad things were going to happen. Way too long, way to aimless. Happy to have left it behind.

Really liking February, by Lisa Moore, will finish this one.

And started another interesting book, with lots of information about elephants woven into it. Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult, 2014. Am looking forward to continuing with this book.

Finished the final book of the Cazalet series by Elizabeth Jane Howard and really liked it. All Change written quite awhile later than the other 4 books. Sad to leave all those characters behind but she does wrap things up for them all.

Adrian McKinty, Sean Duffy series of 4 books is good. Mysteries set near Belfast in the early 1980's - not about the battles but they are ever present in each book.
Just finished the third book and have to wait for the 4th book which has not yet been published. Good plots, good characters.
