    Paperback æ Asta's Book PDF/EPUB ê asta's mobile, book book, Asta's Book PDF/EPUBDid Ruth Rendell consider the novels she wrote under the pseudonym Barbara Vine to be her best work? I personally think this is than likely Much missed by her many fans since her death in 2015 Ruth Rendell was a very prolific and highly regarded crime writer with over sixty books to her name She won many awards and honours and continued to craft novel after novel even though she increasingly had other commitments She regularly attended the House of Lords every day for instance stating firmly that if she were to be awarded the honour of CBE Commander of the Order of the British Empire she intended to work for it rather than allowing it to be a sinecure Yet astonishingly the stories kept coming readable dependable crime mysteries even when she was in her 80's I have read many of Ruth Rendell's novels and short stories over the years including some of the hugely popular Wexford series of twenty four books These are cosy mysteries solid workaday reads though some have

    Paperback æ Asta's Book PDF/EPUB ê asta's mobile, book book, Asta's Book PDF/EPUBWhile this book does have the clever plotting twists and turns I've come to expect of a Barbara Vine title somehow it just didn't have the same force for me Perhaps it seemed to go on too long to have too many red herrings Yes I did enjoy the unwinding of the diary and current day story but it all seemed just too much story Or it could be me my initial reading was quite broken up only continuous at the end I won't let this stop me from trying Vine stories on for size as I've been very pleased with the others I've read I also seem to be a bit below the average in my view of this one sotake it for what it's worth

    Paperback æ Asta's Book PDF/EPUB ê asta's mobile, book book, Asta's Book PDF/EPUBThis is one of those rare gems of a book that I literally could not put down Ever tried washing dishes with one hand so you could hold a book with your other hand? It's messy but it can workRuth Rendell writing as Barbara Vine is one of the most masterful storytellers of contemporary times This novel is so carefully plotted so meticulously and dare I say perfectly crafted that the sheer magnitude of what it must have taken Rendell to work out every small piece of the puzzle is just amazing And Rendell's other strong suit is her unc

    Paperback æ Asta's Book PDF/EPUB ê asta's mobile, book book, Asta's Book PDF/EPUBOnce again I try to read Ruth Rendell this time in her guise as Barbara Vine I wonder if there is something wrong with me? I just can't take to her writing in either personification In this case I could not like AstaAnna at all I found her best selling book not credible and she came across cold arrogant and cruel apart from the early part of the book where she simply seemed unhappy and a bit spitefulAnyway it hasn't changed my mind about the writing I find Rendell somehow un

    Paperback æ Asta's Book PDF/EPUB ê asta's mobile, book book, Asta's Book PDF/EPUBAsta's book is classic Barbara Vine and I loved it almost as much as No Night is Too Long and A Dark Adapted Eye I just feel compelled to ask why on earth was Asta's name changed ??? And was some one employed to go through the whole book editing the change ? Or did American readers open the first page and then find out the name was wrong ? What a perfectly senseless thing to doI do not believe that American Barbara Vine readers or anyone else for that matter would not buy a book because the title used a slightly unusual woman's name
