Montana Cherries- Kim Law, mostly because it was on sale on Kindle, but is alright so far.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

If you do read the book it will grip you... the reason why I recommended it to you is because of the characters. Although it's set in the past, the characters speak as British people would do... unlike the Ice Blue book you were reading. You'll be able to tell the difference. There is something else I could tell you but it'd slightly spoilt it so I won't!

I looked it up and it clearly wasn't!

Well it's not quite the reference that you think it will be!

I wondered about that by the word Casualty in the title.

It's a roller-coaster of a book, can be quite crude in places. Very factually correct as well in terms of the historical context!

I haven't heard of it myself, but I'll look into it

Re: Which book do you currently read?

It smacks of hypocrisy to me. There are certain scenes or parts of it that are deemed acceptable yet I can't help feeling that if those scenes were written by a male author and included women as the submissive element the book would be banned amid a huge feminist outcry... hypocrisy is a pet hate of mine.

Further to this, I just dislike dating programmes, books etc. I feel as though dating and romance if you like should be private between the two people involved in the relationship, I would never want my dates being broadcast to the masses.

I remember the movie of that name wasn't liked by critics, but hit it big at the box office. When I found out what it was about I wouldn't see the movie nor read the box.

I'm currently reading a non-fictional collection of letters and diary entries from the Battle of the Somme.

In terms of fiction... somebody suggested earlier that I give Fifty Shades of Grey a try ... given that I think it should be banned I highly doubt I'm going to read it.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

I finished Come To The Edge. It was sad it had to be sad due to the subject matter. But the fact that there was no chronological order to the book spoiled it somewhat for me. When I read a non-fiction book I want things to be in order. And she had journals she had written during the time she was writing about so why didn't she put things in their proper dated order instead of jumping from past to future to present and back continually throughout the book? Due to the subject matter did it make it easier for her to write it that way? I'll never know the answer.

Come To The Edge is really written so strangely. It is not in any sort of chronological order She jumps around so much in time it is unreal.

That is one thing I don't do is re-read a complete book. I might go and refer back to certain parts of books, but that is all I will do.
