Bill Purdue’s Book Blog : Here’s one I didn’t finish

Last time I was writing about starting a novel and not managing to get to the end. How many times do you have that experience? Well, in my case, not very many, but I must confess that I have just given up on Nicola Barker’s Burley Cross Postbox Theft [Fourth Estate £18.99 978-0007355006].

It’s a pity, because I was looking forward to getting hold of a copy: when I first requested a copy from my local library, it took months to arrive and it was quite a disappointment.Nevertheless I persevered for quite a while, but I wasn’t enjoying it and I thought to myself “there are lots of other books I will enjoy more.”
