I went with a couple of the more classical writers this month and wound up with a selection from Votaire and one from Agatha Christie. Candide is a very simple yet very strange story. I wasn’t sure whether to take it as allegory, parody or just an oddly written story. Death on the Nile was a bit more straight forward even though there were twists and turns sufficient for a murder mystery. I enjoyed the Christie book a bit more but, they are book good reads.
Then my love affair with Miss Jane Yellowrock continued with the latest volume in that series. The more Jane changes, the more she stays the same. I have to admit, some of the way I view some characters in the series has shifted a bit with this book.
Now, I ask for a bit of assistance. I’ve almost chosen an established series to take up. I plan to review one volume from the series each month. I also encourage all the readers to use the comments section not only to remark on that months selection (no spoilers, please) but, also to comment on the series up to that point. If you’ve considered but haven’t picked up any of those in the poll, now’s a good time to have me be your ‘to in the water.” If there something you want me to try that’s not in the poll, select other.
So, what golden oldie or new classic have you chosen for yourself?
