Is that book a new one? I’m not familiar with it.
@Sharron No 2006.
@Alicia Thanks for the info. Guess I’m behind on this author. What’s your favorite book of hers?
@Sharron Well it all began a few months ago as I was in the library, and this book titled ‘Anything Is Possible’ by Elizabeth Strout called out to me. So of course I checked it out and I was taken in by it! Right then I decided I would read more of her work. Right now I have this book mentioned in comment and 2 others of hers on deck, ‘Amy and Isabelle’ & ‘Olive Kitteridge’, I also read ‘My Name Is Lucy Barton’ by her. Great author in my opinion?
I like her too. The first book I read was Olive Kitteridge. I have read Lucy Barton. I will now read the others?
@Sharron Oh good, you’re familiar with her writing. I also remember there being one titled The Burgess Boys…..I think, lol. Anyway I’m glad I came across her works?

The Night Train at Deoli by Ruskin Bond
My Dear Hamilton
In the middle of a biography of Jim Jones and the People’s Temple cult. A fascinating and chilling view of how people can be seduced by charisma and surrender their objectivity. Also reading a biography of H.G. Wells. He was not a particularly nice person. Both him and Jones were sex addicts and had very little regard for the feelings of the women (or in Jones’s case men as well) they conquer and discard once they tire of them. Sometimes reading a biography opens a Pandora’s Box of information that may taint one’s opinion.
Which Jim Jones bio?
@Wils It’s titled The Road to Jonestown. Just recently published.
Yes. I enjoyed that one. Another one from years ago The Raven.
@Wils I’ll eventually get to that one some time. It is a grim story and have to space these books out. It gets too depressing. I’ve read a few by survivors of the cult. I am interested in the psychology of people who fall into cults and seem to loose their perspective and ultimately their individuality. In all these cult situations I feel more for the children who had no other choice unlike the adults who were there of their own free will.
One of us is lying
By whom? Would like to read.
Day of the Triffids
Alice by Christina Henry (I think that’s the right surname!)
How is it
@Alexandria I’m only a couple of chapters in, but so far so good. It’s pretty dark. ?
@Jänet I have a couple of her books & I’m planning to read mermaid next
I picked that up in Waterstones earlier. It sounds good. Will see how this one is first though. ?
@Jänet I have red queen and Alice to read and then mermaid. The mermaid is already downloaded on my kindle so I’ll probably read it first.
@Alexandria I expect you know, but Alice comes before The Red Queen ?
Jänet Sutton yes ma’am that’s why I’ve gotten both books. They kind of sound like a retelling of Alice through the looking glass
