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, the three samples that have been on my Kindle the longest (so, no idea why I have them).
Ablutions by Patrick deWitt
Summary: In a famous but declining Hollywood bar, the barman (also an author) begins to serve himself more often than his customers. He hatches a terrible, but necessary plan of escape.
I’m thinking: Maybe (but I think there are some other deWitts I should prioritise).
The True Deceiver by Tove Jansson
Summary: Two very different women in a small town. One has something the other wants. It all plays out over a snowed-in winter.
I’m thinking: No (alas it was one of those samples that was all ‘introduction’ and no novel).
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Summary: Coming-of-age story about a boy who seeks justice in the wake of a terrible crime.
I’m thinking: No (didn’t immediately pull me in).
