Living in the Maniototo by Janet Frame is a great little find. I have never read any of Janet Frame’s books before. This is an intriguing tale which is at times autobiographic and at times completely fictional. It is a surprise to find what is fictional and what is supposedly real. I’d like to read more of her books.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt was a book that I picked up during the trip to Vietnam in another hotel. This one was a much better ‘pick up’ than The Killing. I think I have seen the movie of this book which is full of snippets of people’s lives in Savannah. The book makes me want to visit Savannah one day.
The Killing by David Hewson was a book my husband picked up in a hotel during our travels in Vietnam. I’d finished A Hologram for the King and I needed something else to read. This kept me entertained although I’d figured out, more or less, who the killers where early in the book. It was very long. I lack appreciation for crime novels.
