Sebastian Faulks – I have read 2 of his books and absolutely love them. He has a way with words that sits well in my mind, somewhat like the writings of Rabindranath Tagore. Of course the comparison is really tenuous and demands more.
“Devil May Care” is a James Bond novel and I remembered more about the thorough descriptions of the meals eaten by the spy than the action itself. Nonetheless, it was a good read and well paced.
“The Girl at the Lion d’Or” – perhaps this is where I felt the style of Faulks and Tagore seem to have some similarities and I liken this book to Chokher Bali The fate of the woman protagonists in the books are well described. Not too dramatic but yet gripping.
I just downloaded “A Possible Life” and love what I am reading in the first few pages. It looks like a book that could be safe haven for a week or so.
