1. What is the ONE best book you read in July? What did you rate it? Why did you like it?
I read two five-star books in July. Since one was a Dutch book (not available to most people in this group), I nominate the other one: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Put Pratchett and Gaiman together and all hell breaks loose, which is more or less what this book is about ...
2. What is the ONE worst book you read in July? What did you rate it? Why didn't you like it?
Not a book, but a short storie: The Five Orange Pips by Arthur Conan Doyle. I rated it two stars.
I usually like mysteries, because I can try to solve it for myself with the clues given in the story. In this story, Holmes gets a visitor, who puts a problem to him, then leaves. Holmes goes out, too, and the next morning he returns and has solved the entire case. Characters whom we've never heard of before are suddenly introduced as culprit ... It's all very vague, and the reader gets no chance to "think along".
3. What ONE book are you most looking forward to reading in August?
A hat full of sky by Terry Pratchett. I just love his work
