Ooh I didn't know about this!

I'm conflicted about her given that The Secret History is one of my all time favourite books yet I immensely disliked The Little Friend.

Oooh! Very excited. Yet I was very excited over the last one, then terribly disappointed when I read it.

I didn't hate The Little Friend. I know lots of people found it disappointing but I thought it was Okaaaay.

I loved The Secret History, and The Little Friend, so I'm stupidly excited that there's another novel coming out. Got to wait until October though sad

Oooh exciting!

The Little Friend was interesting and absorbing but ultimately disappointing, the narrative meandered and nothing felt resolved.

The Secret History was so fantastically sharp smile

I loved The Secret History but never got more than a few chapters in with The Little Friend.

Looking forward to the new one.

Well, that's the thing - is it going to be more like The Secret History (utterly unputdownable) or The Little Friend (very very putdownable). Am not going to buy it until I hear what the jury says.

Am more excited about the new Kate Atkinson.

Ooh grin loved secret history. In fact it may be time for a reread of that one. Plenty of time till October.
