The Easter Visit

Finally, a good book

I have finally found a good book to read.  Donna Leon's new book "Transient Desires"

I'm trying to slow my reading pace to make it last longer, without a lot of success.  I notice that although not mentioned, the virus has had an impact on Venice in this story.  Fewer tourists and tour boats.  Nothing about how the virus has spread in the city.  That might form part of the next book.  But, there is an edge to this book I haven't felt in the other 20 something books.  This one is about people trafficing.  I will say no more than that the story will speak for itself.

I hope you manage to spread out your reading, but I've not managed to, in a lifetime of swallowing books whole!

I haven't got any new novels since the pandemic, but re-read the ones I have in my bookcase. It is nice to find a really good book.

Yes, I did the re-reading thing as well but good new books are always welcome.
