Review of the month - April

April turned out to be a really good month reading wise. Got the tempo back and managed to knock off quite a few books. It probably helped that there wasn't a book of the month coming from the industry so I could read in a hypeless vacuum.

Books read this month:

A Month in the Country by J.L Carr
The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill
How I Came to Know Fish by Ota Pavel
Old Masters by Thomas Bernhard
Tofu Landing by Evan Maloney
The White Castle by Orhan Panuk
Untimely Death by Cyril Hare
Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley

If there was a theme then it was probably two fold with crime represented by Cyril Hare and Walter Mosley and the second world war and its impact a subject covered in A Month in the Country and How I Came to Know Fish.
