Nine of us met to discuss Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James. (I almost wrote Jane Austen, because it is a sequel of sorts to Pride and Prejudice.) Most people enjoyed it but it was a hard book to discuss. Mostly we were able to compare and contrast James’ style to that of Austen. It was agreed that she did a fine job with the style and the characters.

As happens, the discussion turned to what people have been reading lately. Here is a list:

Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye

Suspect by Robert Crais

Detroit: an American Autopsy by Charlie LeDuff

Moby Dick by Herman Melville

A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy (Tara Road was also mentioned as a favorite by this beloved and sadly recently deceased author.)

100 Diagrams that Changed the World by Scott Christianson

anything by J.A. Jance
