Teaser Tuesdays

Today, my Teasers are from

Max Gate

It’s dark already though the curtains aren’t closed yet. Dry snow soundlessly strikes the window and bounces off, some of it mounting on the  sill like ask. There’s the feeling of being slowly buried, of airlessness, and I’ve found myself pulling at the top of my blouse.

     MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

 Rating system Rating system Rating system

Tess of the D’Urbervilles was a favorite read in my teen years. So when I received Max Gate for review, I was intrigued. Written by a New Zealand author (my second author of this country, after Chad Taylor), this short historical novel focuses on the last days before Thomas Hardy’s death and the decisions around his place of burial.

READING NEXT

The Nature of the Beast  Too Dark To Sleep

All is not Forgotten

The Nature of the Beast
= see below why I won’t be listening to it, but read it
Too Dark To Sleep
= offered by the author at Printers Row Lit Fest
All is Not Forgotten
= received for review

CURRENT AND NEXT AUDIOBOOKS

    The Long Way Home   Murder at the Lanterne Rouge

The Long Way Home
= a new page in the life of Armand Gamache!
And alas, this will be the last audiobook of the series for me.
The narrator died,
and the other 2 narrators for next audio really don’t work for me at all.
They speak way too fast, too harshly,
not conveying the atmosphere of peace and goodness
that emanated from Armand with the voice of Ralph Cosham.
Very sad!
Murder at the Lanterne Rouge
= I started listening to it last month, in between 2 books by Louise Penny.
Will go back to it, it’s a series I also enjoy very much.
Each book is set in a different neighborhood of Paris
