I just started The Secrets We Kept, for my book group. It’s pretty good so far. It’s about women spies during the Cold War.
Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.
There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."
Years ago, I got a Hitchhikers Guide computer game. It came with a "don't panic" button and danger-sensitive glasses (solid black cardboard).
I had that game! I Loved that game.
Simultaneous tea and no tea!
Does anyone know if there are going to be any more books in the Dublin Murder Squad books by Tana French? I finished the last one recently, and I want more. Her last two books have been stand alones, and I can't find any info when I try to google it.
I'd also love to know the answer to that question, sj.
sj, all the interviews and reviews that I've read about The Searcher indicated that she has been really shaken up by the state of the world, and exploring the stand-a-lone books have been the result of that. She has given no indication that she is working on another one.
The success of The Searcher may not be much of an incentive for her to return to the series, but who knows.
Thanks, Cashmere. I noticed the last book didn’t really introduce any new detectives that could lead the next book. Which really made it feel like her last. I read The Witch Elm but not The Searcher yet.
The Searcher is on my list.
I really enjoyed the Searcher. Made me miss Ireland like whoa, though.
One thing that always confuses me in her books that I keep meaning to ask someone about is, in Ireland can you ring someone's voicemail directly without making their cellphone ring? Is this common? The detectives in French's novels always seem to be doing this to avoid talking to people.
