A Good Read

I love reading, specially on my new Kindle.  At the moment I am enjoying ‘Afterwards’ by Rosamund Lupton., and think it is one of the best books I have ever read.  It has a very unusual plot that is very gripping, and the style of writing is superb.  I thoroughly recommend it, and if you enjoyed ‘ The Lovely Bones’ this is the book for you.  It is not the same but there is a certain similarity.

In a completely different style I have also enjoyed ‘At Home’ by Bill Bryson.  It is a very interesting and well researched piece of social history.  Taking a house as his theme he moves through the building giving an outline of inventors and their  inventions that have, over the centuries,  been influenced by the needs of each of the rooms.  From the cellar to the attic, it is all there.
