C P Snow and a crow

Listening to a 10 part BBC radio production of Strangers and Brothers by C. P. Snow (books I read 40 years agao) and it is really good. It was made in 2003. Great acting, not sure how they reduce each book into an hour but it's working.

Books, good novel, mediocre novel, good mysteries

Just finished the latest Adrian McKinty, Sean Duffy detective in Belfast in 1985. The fourth in this series, still like them. Gun Street Girl: A Detective Sean Duffy Novel 2015

Read a novel too, A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. 2015. So-so. did not dislike it but it was not great.

Dear Thief, 2014 by Samantha Harvey. Good book, interesting way of writing - as a long letter to a friend. Betrayal and forgiveness. Intriguing read.

In the middle of a good mystery, new to me author, looks like I started with book #4. Swan Song by Damien Boyd. Good so far
