Off on a city break with the DC tommorow - 7 yo obsessed with the Eiffel Tower and they've never been abroad, so we're off to Paris (it was not half as easily done as said!)
So, i'll need a book I can dip in a out of on plane - not sure I'll actually have any time to myself to be honest, then to while away the evenings in the hotel when the dc are asleep (again I may be kidding myself!).
I've recently enjoyed books which are partially autobiographical/memoir:
H is for Hawk Do No Harm Dead Babies and Seaside Towns The Road to Little Dribbling
I started The Story of Us but couldn't get on with it at all.
I also love Douglas Kennedy's thrillery novels. I read ^The Heat of the Moment" in about 3 sittings last time we were on holiday (with kid's club!).
It is written in epistolary style, letters, emails, notes, diary entries so easy to stop and start but still very readable and an absorbing story all the same. It is funny and light but with a bit of an edge to it, and poignant without being sentimental.
