A co-incidence - I've just replied to someone over on asking me about one of the characters in Sarah Water's 'The Little Stranger'. As I said elsewhere on your comments, I would have been glad to see this wonderful novel win the Booker. It is deceptively clever as it allows the reader to embellish the story with their own imaginations (or maybe Sarah makes you think things about what is going on). A wonderful read and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


I have ordered the 'Howard's End is on the Landing from my library; looking foreward to that read. I recently read 'The Little Stranger' by Sarah Waters; I did enjoy the read but I still think her first book 'Affinity' was her best.

The Little Stanger is one boko I have read that though at teh time I wasnt so sure about now months on I am still thinking about!

I am desperate for Howards End is on the Landing, but then I can't think of anyone who isnt!!


I have my copy of "Howards End" and am enjoying it immensely. So much so I think it may inspire my New Year resolution. Quite a thought though not to borrow or buy a book in 2010!

Thank you for the link to Susan Hill's interview. I'm expecting Howards End in the post any day now and looking forward to it immensely.


I'm anxiously awaiting my copy of Howard's End is on the Landing. Not too sure what to make of this strike action concerning the Royal Mail, just how full-blown is it? I was expecting at least one book today but nothing has, zero and nil! Sigh.


The cover of the Susan Hill book really is lovely. I will have to add it to my wish list. The Little Stranger is my favorite by Sarah Waters so far--hope you enjoy it as well!

Enjoy HEiotL! I think a re-read might happen here very soon...
