November Summary

Books

Read two Maureen Lee. Liked the first that I read best: The house by Princess Park. It told the story of Ruby’s birth just as World war 1 ended. It then picks up different part of her and her many descendants stories; from bringing up children during World War One onwards onto millennium new year eve. The other was Stepping Stones.

The fell walker by Michael Wood. Loved that was set in Keswick in the Lake District and referenced places I know. Some suspense was built as regards the murderer. I enjoyed the narrative of the journalist Ben, but was not keen by this being interrupted by a different narrative strand. I did not fully buy the logic to the conclusion of the murder mystery. Certain plot devices near the end which were meant to be, dramatic seemed far fetched, yet it was too inevitable how the situation would conclude.

Film

Bohemian Rhapsody: learnt about the band Queen which, was just before my time and was also entertained, so can not ask for much more.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to plot a story on that subject… in just six words. And your prompt for this week, echoing the crazy busy week I’ve had, is:

Madness

I really hope you guys are in the mood for a long, somewhat boring story. I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while and I’ve finally managed to come up with the words, so here we go. I’m not sure if you remember this but I left education because I was looking for […]
