No, I haven’t forgotten about writing up stocks..! Have an (interesting) few I was just about to buy and write about…but haven’t pulled the trigger yet…hey, what are you buying in this bloody market, either?!
Time for some lighter entertainment instead:
‘Dark Fire’ – C.J. Sansom: I don’t know why I haven’t got any further with this series yet..! I actually have ‘Sovereign’ (the third in the series) already, so have had to put it aside until I can read ‘Dark Fire’. These books are ultimately crime dramas, but set in an accurate and wonderfully atmospheric depiction of life in Tudor England. For a little variety, Sansom’s also written a wonderful Spanish Civil War thriller, ‘Winter in Madrid’, which I highly recommend. I am reminded of Robert Wilson’s excellent novels set in Lisbon, ‘The Company of Strangers’ and ‘A Small Death in Lisbon’.
