I read all the books I received last week and did reviews on three of them. There is only the Anita and Me by Meera Syal to go. I thought the book would deal with the differences between an Indian girl born in the UK and the contrast to her English friends but it was a little more than that. Review coming up. I am always amazed at how much change immigrants face and how they cope with the changes, trying to adapt, most importantly most of them trying to blend in and not be confrontational!
Presently reading an Elizabeth George
Thomas Lynley at his suave best with Havers his sartorial opposite! I still cannot imagine an American author writing about the British, the countryside, the appalling ghettos in the UK - so descriptive, so much detail you are actually living in it.
Next on my list is a triology of P D James - another brilliant mystery murder author.
I'm glad you are enjoying your current reads
Have a great week

Have a good week and happy reading :)ReplyDelete
Elizabeth George is a great novelist. I haven't read this one yet, but I've read other books by her. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Here's what I'm reading this week.
I read Anita and Me years ago, but didn't like it as much as I had hoped. It did give a good insight in immigrant living in the UK, that's true.ReplyDelete
Have a good week!
