How is everyone getting on with Miss Smilla? It's not the sort of book I'd normally read, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Any book suggestions for September?

I'm going to put forward Pride & Prejudice & Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde.

Er, I'm going to take it in the bath in a bit, and start it...

Nicholas Nickleby by Dickens

4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie

War and Peace (it keeps looking reproachfully at me from the bookcase in the hallway)
I can do either book - I havn't got round to reading Miss Smilla... and i know I have the other two on the shelves
sorry, been offline what with the trip and then the move, and then our phone company being in the middle of a labour dispute, and hence unable to connect the phone in our new apartment.

But with no phone, internet or TV I was able to make short work of Miss Smilla, and finished it last week. I quite enjoyed it, but I found the writing style rather formal - I wonder if this is just a consequence of it being a translation, or this is how Smilla would really have "written". I think it suits her character well.
