I just finished the book and will never read another book by this author again. I felt I was lured in by pretty promises only to be abused in the most horrible way at the end. Is it good writing by him? Maybe but why would anyone subject themselves to such abuse? His good writing is not worth it. If sadism can be committed by writing, this book is it

How fun! And how lovely to take your mum with you :) I started 2018 off with Eleanor Oliphant is Complete Fine and it was just the best possible choice. So well written, such a good story, I don't even have the words to say how much I enjoyed it. Reservoir 13 I want to read a lot as well, but I think I'll need to wait until it is out in paperback.

Two of these books intrigue me, Eleanor Oliphant and Reservoir 13, thanks for bringing them to my attention. I also read biographies and memoirs so will check out that one too, to see who is the subject.

'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' was one of the last books I read in 2017 and I was sad to see it end. Such a wonderful, quirky narrator. So I'm glad to see it win its category for the Costa.

So pleased you are back Simon. I really want to know how your library is getting on - largely jealousy as I want one of those. All the best for 2018 and I shall wait patiently for whenever you find the time to blog - no stress just kindness!

I agree about Reservoir 13. I was wrong footed to begin with as I expected a different kind of novel but very quickly was caught up in the lives of the people in the story. Certainly one of the best books I read last year and, for me, a worthy winner. I also loved Eleanor Oliphant. So clever to get Eleanor's voice as a believable one and, with a few exceptions, I really loved the kindness with which so many of the other characters treated her. I really wanted to stay with her longer just to make sure she would be okay.
