I love Miss Marple, having read all the other books previously. And I cannot believe that I have yet to guess who is the murderer in Agatha’s works, she is too clever for me. This will be a summer devoted to Mr. Poirot.
This is a collection of short stories that are snippets from ordinary people’s lives, out and about in the streets of Dublin.
In the beginning it was hard for me to just read 20 pages and then go on to the next story. I wasn’t used to have to take a pause and ponder over what I just read before continuing. I learnt to read more patiently and finally managed to get into the atmospheres of the stories. Because there is a lot of atmospheres and beautiful writing. And Joyce was a master of describing characters and settings. My favourite story was Eveline, where a girl had to decide between staying with a bleak future in Dublin or running off to Buenos Aires with her lover. I need to read more Joyce.
