Exegisti monumentum...aerem perennius?
Papuga Flauberta - Julian Barnes,Adam Szymanowski "Sześciu mężczyzn pochodzących z Afryki grało w kule pod pomnikiem Flauberta." Już w pierwszym zdaniu Barnes oddaje obojętność rodzinnego miasta wobec Flauberta: on nie cierpiał jego mieszczańskości, ono odpłaciło mu się tym samym za jego antymieszczańskość. Mimo to doczekał się w nim pomnika. Barnes liczy pomniki Flauberta we Francji: poza tym w Rouen dwa inne - w nie najlepszym stanie, bo z betonu - stoją w Trouville i Barentin. To i tak wiele, bo Flaubert chciał się rozpłynąć, nie zostawić po sobie żadnych śladów.(...)

Unnatural Causes
Unnatural Causes - P.D. James

Honestly this whole book felt like a waste of time. The only reason why I am giving it two stars is I liked how James described the location of the murders and we get into Dalgliesh's family history more. 

 

"Unnatural Causes" follows Adam Dalgliesh as he returns to Suffolk to visit his aunt Jane. I maybe smiled at her name and had thoughts of Miss Marple dancing in my head. Adam's visit though is interrupted by a local writing group coming to call and then an Inspector Reckless interrupting to tell them that one of their own, Maurice Seton, was found dead and missing his hands. James takes you through all of the characters in this one, Adam, Sylvia Kedge, Maurice's secretary who is handicapped, Maurice's half brother and only heir, Digby Seton, Oliver Latham who is a critic, Celia Calthrop and her niece, Elizabeth.I am probably forgetting someone. We also have to deal with Adam and his tedious relationship and where is it going next throughout this one.

 

Honestly the description of Suffolk was great, I liked hearing things via Adam's third person point of view and other than that, this book dragged. I just didn't care about what was going on after a while. When the action moves from Suffolk things became even slower. 

 

I have to say the ending was lackluster. The killer is revealed and I maybe went really? We then get the killer's taped confession that goes on and on for dozens of pages. I felt bored and things can be wrapped up by saying they felt insulted so they just went about murdering everyone they could.

This book dragged and the taped confession was laughably bad. And I don't know killing people cause of a nightgown choice? I went what a few times.

Ohh, we got a look at an middle-aged woman who had some "romantic" thoughts for the murdered writer Maurice. 

 

I wonder who had such strong emotions to chop off the guy's hands. Her perhaps?

Last Days - Adam Nevill

So I think I'm going to have to put this one on pause for a bit and not just 'cause I got an email from the library saying it's overdue. I need to start Six Wakes for book club and there are some other reads I'd like to get to. I have until the end of the week to decide.
