Deals of the Moment- April 2016


Every month amazon has a set of kindle monthly deals. Whenever there are deals of interest I post on here. Links are associate links but money goes back into the blog.

So I’m going to briefly talk about the books I’ve read which are on offer, and those that I have bought myself. Why I liked them/bought them, and what they are about. End links are to the amazon page, any other links are to my reviews.

Please note prices are correct at time of publishing and may be subject to change.


The Double Comfort Safari Club- Alexander McCall Smith

I really enjoy the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books, but I haven’t got as far as this one yet

Lost and Found- Tom Winter

A nice little book about a woman writing letters to nobody, and the postman who finds them

Round Ireland With a Fridge- Tony Hawks

Tony Hawks is one of those comedic writers, like Dave Gorman, of the type that was very popular a few years ago, part comedian part travel writer, This one is about him hitchhiking around Ireland with a fridge.

Wool- Hugh Howey

The start of Hugh Howey’s much praised trilogy, and the best of the three in my opinion, set in a future where there survives just one silo of people.

Lost and Found- Tom Winter


Synopsis (from amazon)

It started with a letter …

Carol is married to a man she doesn’t love and mother to a daughter she doesn’t understand. Crippled with guilt, she can’t shake the feeling that she has wasted her life. So she puts pen to paper and writes a Letter to the Universe.

Albert is a widowed postman, approaching retirement age, and living with his cat, Gloria, for company. Slowly being pushed out at his place of work, he is forced down to the section of the post office where they sort undeliverable mail. When a series of letters turns up with a smiley face drawn in place of an address, he cannot help reading them.

Review

Lost and Found is a rather quaint story. I don’t exactly have much to say about it. It’s not exciting, and although not exactly predictable nothing happens which you wouldn’t really expect, it could quite easily be true.

That is not to say that it isn’t enjoyable to read. It had quite a conversational style which I enjoyed, and the characters were believable and likeable, especially Albert.

I didn’t really like the ultimate decision which Carol made, but I did understand it, and maybe if she had made the other decision it would have made for a less enjoyable story.

3.5/5
