So I finally finished Maria Kubica’s book The Good Girl. It’s quite a good book and very nearly unputdownable. I nearly missed my train stop several times in the course of reading the book. It was very interesting because it wasn’t an individual’s story. It shows how many individuals are affected by one extra-ordinary experience.
But mind you, the ending, the twist at the end, was very nearly unexpected! A definite must read.
I’ve started on a new book now. Determined to read 2 books a month. I am still a book behind but at least I’m progressing!
The book that I’ve just started reading is about Lucy Atkins. It’s called The Missing One. It’s a daughter’s journey of discovery, of getting to know her mother after her mother’s death. I must say it’s quite interesting because it’s several stories intertwined. Plus there is a science-y bit that I find entirely interesting…it talks about killer whales, orcas. When I was little, my dad and I watched this movie on TV called Orca, The Killer Whale. It was about this whale that kills people in this village because fishermen killed his wife and unborn calf. Does anyone remember this movie? One scene has this woman hanging out of a house on stilts and the orca eats her leg…but just the one!
I wonder how long it’ll take me to finish this book?
