To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

My Father's House

My Father's House - Matthew Carr Beautifully written. The book was well constructed and kept my interest in both the author and his father, but I am in awe of his actual prose. The writing manages to be both classical and modern and utterly natural. I wish I'd tried reading some of it aloud. I'm not sure I can survive his books on terrorism (life is just too frightening just now) so I shall move on to the book about the expulsion of Muslims from Spain and follow my Spanish theme.
