BBRLM (Lisa) July 2008

Since I have decided to delete the separate page for my BBRLM’s (because it was getting unwieldy) I have re-posted BBRLM’s for June, July & August to the main page.  This belated post records my BBRLM for July 2008, and links on the titles take you to separate posts about those books.

It was a most rewarding month. My favourites were:
The Trout Opera by Matthew Condon (10); The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid (10); The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunnant (9) and The Memory Room by Christopher Koch (8) which we discussed at length on ANZLL.
I also read:
A Curious Earth by Gerard Woodward (7)- an old codger at the end of his life packs up and enjoys a last hurrah in a most entertaining way.
The Chocolate King by Jill Robertson (4): The story of MacPherson Robertson who started MacRobertson’s chocolates here in Melbourne. A most interesting biography, especially for those of us who love chocolate!
The Heart Garden: biography of Sunday Reed – tiresome and boring. I took it back to the library unfinished.
And a children’s book:
The Key to Rondo by Emily Rodda (7): a clever plot about some kids who break the rules about playing with a music box and end up inside the world of it in pursuit of an Evil Queen who’s taken the girl’s dog.
