May reviews

A fairly varied month of reading, in terms of the styles, places and how I rated the books.  My book of the month is Joe Lansdale's Edge of Dark Water, a porch-told, coming of age yarn set in East Texas in the 1930s.  Edge of your seat stuff.

Thanks Rob. I have the Lansdale but I keep picking it up and putting it down again. You have convinced me to give it a proper go.

Edge of Dark Water tops the list of books I have read recently too. Almost as good as THE BOTTOMS.
