Talking 'bout Books
At last I've finished ' Oscar and Lucinda' - I was almost enjoying the read, excellent descriptive writing, when the plot began to get very silly and the last few pages seemed to wander around all over the place. I'm glad I got through it (took much longer than I thought) and it will be good to hear what the other book club people think.
Now to something very much easier to read, more in my comfort zone, 'The Day of the Storm' by Rosamunde Pilcher. Written in 1975 cruising around Putney, Fulham & Cornwall.
Tomorrow I am going to Wanneroo History Centre to do some more research on my family plus some for other people. Time now to have roast chicken, potatoes, carrots, onions and pumpkin.
