I presume this series has now given you 34 evening drinks, although surely not 34 books re-read. Choose something extra special for episode "C" (Dark Island Reserve perhaps https://www.orkneybrewery.co.uk/beer/dark-island-reserve-750-ml which I have never tried but I will one day, indeed this very winter solstice perhaps).
The price will astonish you...
A proud price, indeed, one would say in German. But apart from that I would not pay the price: I did never enjoy strong beers with 9 or 10%, so far.Each I tasted, I drank twice – the first and the last time.
Hah, "each to his own". I do occasionally savour a beer that is effectively a beerish wine. Harviestoun Ola Dubh, for example, brewed not far from me (https://harviestoun.com/product/ola-dubh-12yr-old-whisky-aged/)
This one could come closer to my taste, as only yesterday I tried one beer with 7,5 percent, found it excellent and now am curious how it will taste next time. You are, by the way, right. I chose the books to go with the beers. Some of the 34 I read many years ago - a few of them I want to re-read.
Here is another writer I truly would wish to try. I'm very currious. The reviews reveal he writes fascinating stories but his style is clumsy. It seems that, once you start reading his books you cannot let them go. The subjects grab your interest, and even if the language is clumsy and irritating, you persist to the end.It's only in my old age that I read reviews BEFORE I read the books. In earlier years, I always made up my own mind about style and subject. Of course, I often lost time with mediocre books. Now that I am being rushed by the hours, I like to know if a book is worth 2 hours of my precious extended life.As you can see, my own style is far from perfect.
Once I found this book interesting. Noticing the paperback somehow had vanished, a while ago I bought the copy pictured above at an antiquarian bookseller without re-reading it since.So many other good books to read.
