Two books I've read recently and loved are City of Thieves by David Benioff and The Geurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.

I understand what you mean about the Philippa Gregory book...


I had the same reaction to the Annie Proulx book, and I read it the old-fashioned way. But I think that chopped-up narrative style was intended to be reflective of Quoyle's inner state. When he is grieving hardest, the narrative is at its most befuddled and confounding. As he heals, the narrative smooths out and becomes more lucid.


It's so interesting to hear a writer reviewing books; thanks for sharing your experience! I'm always looking for a good read!

I second The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society; I haven't enjoyed a book so much in years.
