Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
My first Ruth Rendell, and enjoying very much. I've read one of her Barbara Vine books and was not over impressed. The first chapter was so well constructed that I had to stop a moment to admire it before moving on. She has been weaving a cast of characters together, growing and revealing them, and I’ve loved every minute of it, even though I still have no idea how they’re all going to fit together in the plot.
