It can't be as boring.
I'm halfway through JK Rowling's adult debut, The Casual Vacancy: not quite convincing and overdone, but I'll see it through.
The 'train' series by David Downing. I read some out of sequence so read them all in order again on holiday.
Zoo Station begins in what was then Danzig (now Gdansk) just before WW2
Stettin Station - first years of the war until involvement of the US.
Potsdam Station - entry of the Red Army to Berlin
Lehrter Station - the aftermath
Masaryk Station - Tying up loose ends
The series is a historically accurate but fictional espionage story and although centred around Berlin involves other places. The lead character is a British born American citizen living in Berlin with a German ex-wife and son and a German girlfriend. In the first book he becomes involved as a double agent, although unequivocally anti-Nazi he shows sympathy with different points of view. An excellent series.
Thought I'd try and revive this thread - I'm two-thirds of the way through Moby Dick. It's brutal!
'Moby Dick ' is mentioned in Andy Miller's 'The Year of Reading Dangerously' - he compares it to 'The Davinci Code ' -honest. Just finished the new Mark Billongham ' Die of Shame ' it was ok . Have 'A Little Life ' on my shelf but just reading ' Trust No one ' Claire Donoghue - not really feeling it to be honest ....
Have just read first of this trilogy... Wondering if the scene to which you refer is the same one that had that effect on me? (Your user name suggests it might be.)
