Cecily's book reviews

In general I've written reviews of every book I've read since I joined GoodReads (RIP) in May 08, along with one or two I read prior to that. More recent reviews tend to be longer (sometimes a tad too long?). I always carry a book, though I don't get as much time as I'd like to get engrossed - life is busy, but in a good way. Too many of my favourite authors died without writing enough! Apart from reading, and writing about reading, I enjoy Scrabble, good restaurants, woodland, and attending the theatre.
Wake Up - Tim Pears Two brothers run a potato empire. The geeky one is involved in a GM trial that went wrong and is turning himself in psychological knots re his guilt (or otherwise) about that and all sort of other things. The main "shock" is quite predictable, but the other, not at all. A quick read, but a very good one.
