Wednesday Words – Parchment Poll June 2014

Ploughing on through my paperback bookshelf – no more new books until I’ve finished the lot… (Though if I receive books as presents, that’s different!)
Currently reading: –
“The Railway Man” by Eric Lomax
Although hard to “get in to”, it was well worth persevering with this fascinating story which travels from the depths of despair in a Japanese prison to forgiveness and love. 3/5
“The King’s Mage” by Elizabeth Baxter
Thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced, intriguing fantasy tale… Just want to read the final book now! Full review will appear in a few weeks time. 5/5
“Daphne du Maurier: A Daughter’s Memoir” by Flavia Leng Beautifully written but it’s really about Daphne’s daughter, not Daphne herself. 3/5
“The Lamb, the Beast & the Devil” by John Hosier
Not easy to read – a bit dry. The author just states what is obvious but the one thing in his favour is that he doesn’t try to twist the text out of context. 2/5
“The Place Of The Lion by Charles Williams
Awesome read! I don’t pretend to understand it all, but the images portrayed are glorious and terrifying. 5/5
“Yours, Jack” Letters from CS Lewis
Another inspiring and soul enlarging read. Well worth reading for the broadness of Lewis’ faith that never compromises his beliefs. 5/5
“Ivanhoe” by Sir Walter Scott
A swashbuckling romance set in the turbulent days of Richard the Lionheart and his brother John. There’s true love, betrayal, fighting, and a huge cast of characters, including the legendary Robin Hood. 5/5
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
