“This week’s musing asks…
What are you currently reading? And, is it better, as good as, or worse than your last read?“
I am currently reading In the Fog by Richard Harding Davis and Bleak House by Charles Dickens. In the Fog is a quick little read. Frankly I am enjoying it more than I thought I would. Dickens, as you all may know, is one of my favourite authors. I am really irritated by the characters of Mr. Skimpole and Richard Carstone but other than that I am enjoying Bleak House.
My last read was 4.50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie. Now Christie is, again as you all may know, one of my favourite authors. Bleak House is so very different from 4.50 from Paddington . It’s like comparing apples and oranges.
In the Fog, on the other hand, is a mystery. But it is from a very different era. 4.50 from Paddington is modern when compared to In the Fog, which is set during the Victorian era.
So, I can’t say that Bleak House or In the Fog is any better or worse than 4.50 from Paddington. All are good in their own way, which is great for me as a reader. A good read is always welcome!
