Ninth Brookmyre. What is the longest book title ever? Is it this one? In the acknowledgements Brookmyre even thanks the designer for fitting all the words on the cover. Anyway, guess what? Yeah, i loved it. If i was to force myself to pick a favourite Brookmyre, this might be it. Might be. If i forced myself. Which i won't.

I was warned by BeardyMan to have a cheerful book ready for after i'd read this, but it wasn't so bad. Some pretty and relate-able things in there, but i found i didn't like Esther much. I think the book is seriously over-hyped, in positive and negative ways. It's a book, and it is okay. That is all.
Today we made a double-length one board high raised bed. This will have mange tout peas growing in it soon!
Is this some newfangled technology i've not been made aware off? Looks like
a hand towel dispencer to me...
Eighth Brookmyre. Huzzaz for more Parlabane! I knew i'd been reading too much Brookmyre when often through this book i thought "It'd be fucking awesome/gross/typical Brookmyre if..." only for my 'if' to happen not long later. Though saying that i also had my 'typical Brookmyre' expectations challenged a couple of times.

1) Planting out seedlings left me with a singularly very muddy finger.
4) This bed is now full!

I read and enjoyed Day of the Triffids years ago, and when i found out The Midwich Cuckoos was the book the Village of the Damned films were based on, i had to read it. Ace book, even though i knew what was coming. The Children were definitely eerier in the book than the films. I foresee more Wyndham in my future.
I may have inadvertently set myself a challenge of some kind.
