If you were hooked by Gone Girl or Before I go to Sleep, you'll be quickly reeled in by this one.
Great story, artfully revealed through its three main characters. If you can get your hands on the Penguin audio book, do so. The three separate readers are superb. It's really a stay-up-all-night kind of story.
I have been on a mini-sabbatical from the blog mainly because I really have nothing to write about. But here's a capsule catch-up of the last couple of weeks. We had short ~ 2 might ~ visit from daughter Cait. She and I did a shopping blitz and a local outlet mall, the first time I've been SHOPPING in person and not via e-tail in many years. She found what she was looking for so it was a great success. I've been doing my daily morning walk through various neighborhoods, checking on the progress of the changing landscapes as the valley tries to cope with our severe water situation. Lots of imaginative uses of bark and stones! We are in good shape here in Casa Contenta since we have no grass and most of our landscaping is done in pots. Not much water needed to keep them alive.
I've seen a few movies over the past couple of weeks; The Imitation Game (*****), Silk (****), Birdman (I gave up after about 15 minutes; not in the mood, I guess but I'll try again), Call the Midwife (I started at the beginning since I had not watched it when it originally ran. Definitely *****).
Otherwise, who knows where the time has gone.
