  1. Penny Hull

    Have read a few of them.
    Loved Sea of Tranquility (fiction!!) although I didn’t think it quite as good as Station Eleven.

    • Paul

      That is good to know, would you highly rate the ones you have read? Station Eleven was excellent, and have high hopes for this. I am reading more fiction at the moment as I have lots of it here and can read it really really quickly

  2. Penny Hull

    Cold Fish Soup and Why Women Grow were both very good.
    I liked the sound of the Francis Pryor book but couldn’t get into it at all.
    You are lucky to be a fast reader – I’m not!

    • Paul

      Why Women Grow was a charity shop find! And you kindly sent me Cold Fish Soup

  3. Liz Dexter

    I’ll be interested to hear what you think of Human Origins: A Short History – I have reviewed it for Shiny but I found it took me quite a long time to get through!

    • Paul

      I will let you know in due course!
