About Me

My love affair with books, like most, started at an early age and is never ending. My book reading preferences have changed over the years and I look forward to sharing my varied reading tastes with you. You will find a lot of Crime Fiction (a penchant for Scottish Crime writers features a lot.) and also I love reading non fiction History. Hopefully you will find some new authors and new favourites to continue your own reading journey. ENJOY!

COFFIN ROAD

I have just finished reading a fabulous book by Peter May called Coffin Road. I haven't read much of this authors work and it looks like I will have to indulge. The Story begins with a man washed up on a beach on the Hebridean Island of Harris not knowing who he is or where he is. As the story unfolds, we follow the man living the nightmare of not having any memories of his past life, and what perhaps he may have done whilst living a secluded life on the island. There are only a few characters in this book but the way the author weaves them into the story is what kept me reading. May uses the disappearance of the lighthouse keepers on the Flannan Isles in 1900 as an interesting side mystery in his novel and his description of the wild islands are fantastic.

I will be looking into the Lewis Trilogy also written by Peter May as this looks like another brilliant read.
