Reading progress update: I've read 59 out of 320 pages.
Jaws - Peter Benchley

For the Drowning Deep

 

It's been more than forty years since I read this and boy is it different reading this as an adult versus as a kid.

 

The inflation. The casual sexism. The really weird history of the serial rapist.

 

I am liking the time he takes to explain the cast of characters, and the whole economy of the Hamptons. And I love the newspaper editor.

Reading progress update: I've read 6%.
Hunted - Meagan Spooner

I am already at 6 percent and I just opened this book. Ebook percentages are weird. 


Nice ominous start though:

 

"We always know before the change comes. When a storm approaches, we feel it in the thickness of the air, the tension in the earth awaiting the blanket of snow. We feel the moment the wind changes direction. We sense a shift of power when it is coming. Tonight there is hunger in the air. The forest waits for something. We pace, our steps stirring the early snows. Our frustration vents in growls and grunts. Each of us could read the change to come, neither hindered by the other. We could track it, or we could run with it. But we are trapped, and we can do neither. We always know before the change comes—but we never know what the change will bring."

Reading progress update: I've read 15%.American Noir with a hard boiled FBI guy being all no nonsense and probably about to have his mind blown
Huntress Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff

This FBI tale is so Joe Friday it took me a while to realise that it’s set in this decade. The man character is a thinker who still seems to have no awareness of how irrepressibly male his perceptions and assumptions are.

 

Im intrigued by the woman in black who seems to be the huntress of the title.

 

Its  a relief to move to this find-the-baddy. Kind of noir' filled with attitude but free of real introspection after having lived in the long night of Scandi Noir.
