Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
This week, all three are samples that have been on my Kindle for years.
Time Present and Time Past by Deirdre Madden
Summary: Fintan Buckley is a pleasant and conventional man with an ordinary job and family. Fintan begins to experience states of altered consciousness and auditory hallucinations, which seem to take him out of a linear experience of time.
I’m thinking: No – is there a hint of time travel…?
Careless People by Sarah Churchwell
Summary: A literary investigation – how a forensic search for clues to an unsolved crime influenced the creation of America’s best loved novel.
I’m thinking: Yes (it’s Gatsby!).
Reunion by Andrea Goldsmith
Summary: Four university friends return to their home city after a twenty year absence. Lovers, careers, new friends and illness have changed things.
I’m thinking: No – predictable.
