As I mentioned on another thread I was planning to read The London Train by Tessa Hadley this month. However so far I've been mostly immersed in reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell and rather busy at work, so that hasn't happened yet.
I have just discovered audiobooks though (or more specifically audio updates to kindle books I already have) and was able to listen to seven chapters of The Song of Achilles (Orange winner in 2012) whilst tidying up and ironing yesterday. So hopefully that will end up being a January Orange/Baileys read. Depending on much ironing I do this month 😉
I continue to read a few Orange/Baileys every year, so I'm still around.
I really liked Song of Achilles. What were your reservations about it?
I did enjoy The Song of Achilles but sometimes that full on intense love for Achilles made me a bit queasy and towards the end Patroclus's passive, caregiving role in the battle seemed unconvincing.
It may be significant that I listened to it on audio which is quite rare for me.
