An interesting book to read at the start of the relationship and indeed, it was one I found at his. Was going to say on his shelves but, that would not be accurate; as that would be far too organised. Being a biologist it has interesting facts about how humans have evolved. It is interesting from a sociological point of view and can prompt discussion about whether points raised are accurate. I have read aloud parts of the book that we have agreed are of interest.
To avoid saying yet again, that it is interesting; I will mention. It is humour for example, giving humorous scenarios that may happen between couples before going on to explain the science behind. Slightly patronising in places ‘the woman should let man drive without critiquing…’ Overall enjoyable read and the authors have other similar titles.
It seems 22nd February is a historic Sheffield day.
Firstly 200years ago on 22nd February 1819 the first canal boats travelled down the new Sheffield canal. To celebrate there is events in Victoria Quays from 11am.
Secondarily, 75 years ago on 22nd February 1944 a plane travelling back from Denmark crashed in Endcliffe Park. Due to avoiding boys playing on the grass and instead crashing into trees tragically killing the crews. One of the boys who’s life was saved is now 82 and he campaigned for the event to be commentated. At about 8.45am on 22nd February there will be a fly pass Ecclesall road, which is being shown live on BBC 1.
Due to Steig Larrsson’s untimely death before he knew of the success of his first three millennium books, the subsequent books in the series are being written by a different author. I have read the fourth book in the series by David Largercrantz; the girl in the spider’s web. After reading, I have not ruled out reading more of series however, it was not my favourite of the series. Rather than the author per se; it may have been that the topic was too technical for me and did not engage me; it was about artificial intelligence. That been said I also found level of finical detail in Girl with Dragon tattoo tedious, hence the issue may not be the author and have not ruled out reading more of the series.
Additionally I felt Girl with spider’s web, lacked some of the personal stories of Salander, Blomkvist and Berger such as them relating to each other.
Euphoric kiss ended much awaited date.
