When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of.

**** Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option. ****

Thank you Abi-Gibby for the HGG surprise which I opened yesterday on Christmas day. It looks interesting.

This was very different to how I expected. At times I felt great empathy towards the narrator, and at other times (mostly towards the beginning) she irritated me. I loved the feelings she described towards her cabin on the ship. They were so complex, and yet somehow so well explained. The Antarctica ended up taking second place in the book's attention, but that was ok in an odd sort of way.

Journal Entry 10 by bookfrogster at Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Friday, December 2, 2022
Although I'd heard of this author, I think this is the first of their books I've read. I thought it was a really interesting account of a dysfunctional family. I also liked how she coped with being on holiday on board a boat with people whose views she did not agree with!
