Coming to the end of another weekend and it has been a good one apart from the head cold that seems to be developing rather than disappearing.
I caught up with one of my close friends on Saturday morning for coffee (or chai tea as it turned out) and among other things we of course discussed books. My friend said she was going looking for her next book that afternoon and she was on the hunt for a "good story" and it clicked with me that that was exactly what I was wanting in my reading at the moment. A good story filled with characters that entertained and informed, a variety of settings and locations, drama and passion but most of all - a book that takes me on an adventure.
So, I went out looking for that "good story" too. I ended up coming home with The Peacock Throne by Sujit Saraf - I had never heard of the book or the author before but I was intrigued by the description of the book and by this review.
I am about 50 pages in so far and I think I have found the "good story" I was seeking...
Has anyone else got any recommendations for books they would describe as a good, or even great, story?
