Book reviews

My regular reader (yes, I do have one) might have noticed that quite a few days have passed since I posted my last book review.  I have been reading - at the moment I am half way through The War for All the Oceans - but I seem to have had less time free to read over the last week or so.  I can't think just why that should be so as I don't think I am doing anything extra to what I was doing, say, the week before last.  In fact, there are still a lot of things that I haven't found time for, like pruning that is needed in the garden and clearing away stuff that I have already pruned.  Never mind, we shall be off to France on Friday week and that means I should get a fair bit of reading done.

Glancing back over that paragraph reminds me of another Grrr! point: people saying "less" when they should say "fewer".

I'm writing this late at night and will try to schedule the post to appear tomorrow morning.  Quite a few times recently I have noticed that Blogger doesn't like doing that and merely saves the proposed posting as a draft.  We shall see.

There are times when Blogger seems to have a mind of its own.

I enjoyed A War for All the Oceans, though I seem to enjoy historical fiction even more. I guess what happens in our imaginations is more exciting than reality?

You might already know the Bolitho series by Alexander Kent. The maritime equivalent of Richard Sharpe being novels about the Napoleoinic wars but set at sea.
