I've had this on order at the library for a few weeks now. Cannot wait to read it!

I hated Notes On A Scandal. Will I like this one anyway? Why?

EliotNess Wed 10-Jul-13 17:38:07

Well I haven't finished it yet. It's creepy. In a good way

Let me know. I need recs, but I have zero tolerance for either poor or self-indulgent writing these days.

Larks. Have you done handsome brute ? Or the new Kate Atkinson ? (After recent bad form it's good )

Urgh - Have vowed never to read another Kate A. What is Handsome Brute?

I loved Notes on a Scandal.

I must NOT buy any more books. I am about 4 book club titles behind and have the leaning book tower of unread books by my bed.

<Goes to order this on Amazon>.
