En tjej har bokfemman. Det är kul tycker jag. Veckans femma är:
Nämn 5 manliga författare vars böcker du läser mycket av. Ge också exempel på den bästa av deras böcker. (State 5 male writers you read and name their best novel)
1. W. Somerset Maugham gillar jag massor. Särskilt Of Human Bondage, men hans noveller är fantastiskt bra och av dem gillar jag bäst Rain. Jag tänker förvånansvärt ofta på den, på regnet, på stämningen när de väntar.
I love Somerset Maugham especially the short stories that take place in the Pacific.
2. Terry Pratchett är min bästa comfort-författare. Bästa boken är Lords and Ladies.
Terry Pratchett is my comfort writer. When I need to wind down I read him or Harry Potter (like last night when I sat up reading Susan Hill's latest crime novel and I couldn't stop. I thought I was gonna make it (i.e. stop reading at a decent time), I was reading in the living room, thus not bringing the book with me into the bedroom but I stayed up for more than 1 hour and in the end I had to speedread the ending so I could go to bed. But then I was on such a high that I had to read some Rowling to calm me down).
3. Robert Jordan. Bästa bok The Eye of the World.
This is one of my favourite fantasy writers. I have come to terms with the possibility of there being no end to his series (that I have lived with since 1994, longer than I've known my husband). I love the first four books and that is enough for me. (So no pressure Mr Rigney (but do beat this thing for your own sake)).
4. H.E. Bates läser jag jämt. Samma fem böcker. Darling Buds of May är bäst. Perfick.
H.E. Bates was a lovely writer who knew how important it is to include descriptions of food in novels. Perfick. Also I love David Jason.
5.Reginald Hill. Dialogues of the Dead.
Crime writer. Lots of obscure references to stuff. Fun.
