Default 2018 Palimplist Discussions

I post this in great hope! I really miss the Palimplist discussions and continue to rely on your Palimplists, ratings, and reviews for recommendations.

First off, lurgee, I am already loving your short reviews this year.

Second, Col, I read The Good Soldier by Ford Madox Ford and started the Parade's End but drifted away for some non-literary reason or other. I see him on ykur list this year; have you read anything else by him?

Third, everyone seems to love Lincoln in the Bardo. Is it the plot? The writing? Other? All of the above? It is waiting on my Kindle, but I haven't given it a high prioroty yet.

Hiya, yes, I have read his historical novel "The Fifth Queen" which is about Katherine Howard (fifth wife of Henry VIII) - which is very good indeed. Parade's End is a LONG read but really worth it in the long run.

I've also enjoyed Lincoln in the Bardo, although I don't think it was as stunningly brilliant as some reviews made out. I think John S was not entirely convinced, if I remember correctly.
