Lory @ Emerald City Book Review

I have not read a single one of these. Or heard about any except the Smiley. I think I tried that one and couldn't get into it. But beside the ocean of Time sounds by far the most appealing to me personally (seems we have similar tastes) so I'm going to vote for that one!

Besides the Ocean of Time. I get on better with George Mackay Browns short stories, but he's a really interesting writer and evokes old Orkney (which s never far from the surface anyway) brilliantly.


A Thousand Acres gets my vote, mostly because it sits unread on my shelf too!

Your little Clara with her feather cracks me up :)


Two votes for BTOOT (and I thought of you, Hayley, as I dusted the cobwebs off it, I swear the most industrious people in this house are spiders) and two unread copies of A Thousand Acres...

Clara is hilarious! She's got bored with the feather now and is back to chasing bumble bees. Meanwhile, I have noticed a large pigeon with a rather skimpy-looking tail hanging out in the walnut tree.


I take it Clara is the cat? I first thought she was one of the chickens. A pigeon-hunting chicken, haha!


Ha, yes it isn't clear at first is it? I suppose they are distantly related to Tyrannosaurus Rex (

We have four hens, two cats and a hamster at the moment (plus thousands of spiders, woodlice, mosquitoes, even worms who come into the kitchen when it rains), also assorted invisible friends of my daughter's, it is a bit confusing.
