A Russian friend, via Postcrossing (https://www.postcrossing.com/ ) wrote “but sometimes I really have a reading attack “. Me too! I know just what she means. Right now I’m hugely enjoying The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Much to my surprise, as the book has been lurking on my TBR shelf for two years and I finally tackled it. Now I can’t put it down! From one extreme to the other. Who would have thought that a book set in Stalinist Moscow could be so funny? What are your recent reading surprises?

  1. The Master and Margarita is great – it is a surprise, isn’t it, to find the satire so funny! My most recent reading surprise might have been Geraldine McCaughrean’s Where the World Ends; I don’t read children’s or YA novels very often, so wasn’t sure what to expect, and was very pleasantly surprised indeed by its wit and sensitive handling of quite scary material.

  2. Great review and its resulted in my ordering the book for Peter’s birthday in June. He is an avid fantasy lover, Terry Pratchett’s Disk Worlds and Tolkien’s’ Ring trilogy being just two of his many favourites. I have a feeling this book will be right up his street! Many thanks, old friend! x
