The Interpretation of Murder (Freud, #1)The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book really wasn’t for me, far too long-winded. I got bored reading it and couldn’t wait to finish. Lots of historical data, but it just didn’t reach out to me.

A Monster Calls

Having talked about this book, only a couple of days ago, in my bog titled “Cancer the scary big “C” word”, Mumsnet book club is also promoting the same book. There is a chance to get your hands on one for free for 24 hours from 10am today.

If you missed the Mail on Sunday review, A monster Calls, by Patrick Ness is the story of a 13-year old boy whose mother gets cancer. It was originally written for children to help them come to terms with the emotional chaos this can cause amongst a family. However it has been repackaged for adults too. Reviewed in the medical journal The Lancet, many medical professionals support its content.
