Welcome to our forums.

What are you reading?

Just finished Nora Roberts ‘Witness’. A young girl witnesses a Russina Mafia murder and goes on
the run. A good read, and all her characters are very well-rounded so you ‘feel for them’ throughout
the story.

Thanks for getting back to me @TedKngt and glad you’re enjoying it. Not one I’ve read but sounds like I should at some point.

coolonespa Have not finished it yet but it’s been an enjoyable read, to say the least. Enjoyed the church politics more than I thought I would. Have you read it?

Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose

Have you finished this yet? Been interested to know what you thought about it when you have finished.

Picked up an old book we have at home, I have Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose. Have not read him before but heard the name, didn’t realise it was his first novel. Also, browsing through this can’t really apply anything and I’m anticipating it will be for a long time, but neat knowing a few bits like everything starting with a beer stand for Marriott. I’m lining up Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things next and a few more suggested articles I saw on this forum.

Love all lJames Patterson’s books, Steve, so will look out for that when our charity shops open again (I’m a cheapskate!).

16th Seduction (Women’s Murder Club #16) by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro

As always with this series a compelling and easy read.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Fifteen months ago, Detective Lindsay Boxer’s life was perfect—she had a beautiful child and a doting husband, Joe, who helped her catch a criminal who’d brazenly detonated a bomb in downtown San Francisco, killing twenty-five people. But Joe wasn’t everything that Lindsay thought he was, and she’s still reeling from his betrayal as a wave of mysterious, and possibly unnatural, heart attacks claims seemingly unrelated victims across San Francisco. As if that weren’t enough, the bomber she and Joe captured is about to go on trial, and his defense raises damning questions about Lindsay and Joe’s investigation. Not knowing whom to trust, and struggling to accept the truth about the man she thought she knew, Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a brilliant criminal puts her on trial

That one’s next on my Scarpetta reading list Gill. Would you say its not worth reading then?

AS people turn to a good book in self isolation the BBC report that “surprisingly, fictional accounts of epidemics are in great demand.” I would have thought this was the last thing anyone would want to read as they rarely turn out well for all but the hero and/or heroine They say that at “number two in Amazon UK’s chart of most sold books of the week is The Eyes of Darkness by Dean Koontz. Although it was written in 1981, it describes a virus called Wuhan-400, in what appears to be an uncanny prediction of the coronavirus.”

Oh no, Steve – it’s still a very good read – just me that likes every detail sorted!

There has been fake news on social media regarding this book. It shows a page, with lines underlined in red ink, that are much more graphic in the description, but is not the true page which you mention. There’s also a video going round about a drama series on Netflix, in Chinese but with subtitles, shown quite a few years ago, which also accurately describes the virus. But as to whether the subtitles are accurately translated………who knows.
