Review: Nine Coaches Waiting

Nine Coaches Waiting Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

wherever you were, you took your little circle of loneliness with you

Excellent gothic thriller, with all the requisite tropes. Innocent female, child at risk, huge mansion, spooky owner, and a lover who might, or might not, be involved.

Review: A Pale Horse

A Pale Horse A Pale Horse by Charles Todd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

love this series about a man who barely managed to survive WWI and is now trying hard to get his life back together again, and solving murders along the way.

Great characters, complex plots.

I also loved the setting. I've been to Uffington, seen the Horse and Wayland's Smithy.

Review: Recursion

Recursion Recursion by Blake Crouch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Related but not directly to [Dark Matter], a study of what is time and what is memory. Changing the world's timeline turns out to not be a good idea. Who knew?

Review: Dark Matter

Dark Matter Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I waited a month for [Recursion] but then belatedly realized I got [Dark Matter] mixed up with something else and I hadn't yet read it. So, at the last moment I was able to get it from the library and jumped in.

I enjoy Blake Crouch thrillers. Lots of science, likeable characters, and interesting sciency scenarios. Enjoyed it a lot.
