Beartown by Fredrik Backman (also published as Scandal) What a book! I can’t believe this book is written by a man. Yes. I know, Prejudice. Whatever. Sorry to sound like an arsehole. But the strength of emotions and the amount of painfully accurate truth in this book is dazzling. I cannot express my admiration on how Backman captured the psychology […]

I can’t believe it’s NOT mentioned on the blurb as the publishers are so eager to label books as “for fans of such and such”! If you liked Ripley, you’ll love this book. I found Mangan’s writing very similar to Patricia […]
