Oo, maybe that next then. Thank you. Not quite snowed in, but it is certainly seriously dank and murky here, nearly dark at 4.55pm, going to light the fire later and hunker down so it could be the right time.....
I quite enjoyed 'Dark Matter' but thought the non fiction it was loosely based on- 'A Woman in the Polar Night' was far far better. A truly amazing account of a woman in the 1930s overwintering in Svalbard with her husband.
I would skip 'Jamrach's Menagerie' tbh. I thought it was a poorer version of 'Life of Pi' without the poeticism and profundity.
Pigeon English is good but a bit emotionally draining!
