– for Kerrie´s alphabet in crime meme –
This week I have chosen the whole world as my subject. One of the brilliant aspects of reading fiction is that it is such a comfortable and inexpensive way of travelling all around the world.
A few books that have taken me to other places:
A fine experience of travelling not only in space, but also in time, is Rebecca Cantrell´s A Trace of Smoke, the first Hannah Vogel story, set in Berlin in the 1930s – in an environment which is very different from my own in several ways.
Last year I read Sarah Andrews´ In Cold Pursuit, set in Antarctica. The story is a rather ordinary thriller, but the sense of being in Antarctica, having to cope with the difficulties of the cold climate is well done.
A third example is James Thompson´s Snow Angels. A noir story which describes the dark, depressing and seemingly everlasting winter of Finland.
What is your favourite fictional journey?
