Gently reading

10 Comments

 

I have read 5 books about Inspector Gently  by writer Allan Hunter so far. My intention is to read them all in the right order but I will make a break and read something else. It´s a cold morning but the sun is up and I expect it to be a nice autnumday. Maybee I will go for a walk in the woods nearby.

Si tratta di una fredda mattina qui a Karlstad, ma il sole splende e sembra essere una bella giornata d’autunno.

Kall morgon men det ser ut att bli sol och vackert väder längre fram på dagen.

Nu är jag inne på 5:e boken om Inspector Gently av författaren Allan Hunter. Jag läser alla i rätt ordning och har tänkt plöja igenom de 10 första. När jag har läst ut Gently through the Mill tänkte jag göra ett uppehåll och läsa något annat.

  1. Jag har inte läst någon av böckerna om Gently, men det kanske blir av någon gång, för jag antar att de finns på svenska också. Min engelska är för dålig för att jag ska kunna njuta av dem på originalspråket.

  2. Ja nu är hösten verkligen här nätterna börjar bli riktigt kyliga men jag tycker det är skönt 🙂
    Har inte heller läst böckerna om Gently men ett intressant tips att lägga på minnet..
    ha en fin dag hoppas du har samma stora sol som jag ser ..

  3. Ja, så här är det. Kalla nätter och morgnar men med sol på dagen också hos oss runt +10 minst.

  4. Huvvaligen! Dom temperaturerna gillas inte! Fast vi verkar vara på väg åt samma håll här på motellrummet. Måste gå och minska kylan på AC’n märker jag… 🙂

  5. Did you ever read (or watch) any of the Detective Frost Mysteries (Touch of Frost)?

  6. Had the paperback books too…passed those on too.

  7. I’ve watched many of the Inspector Gently programs from BBC One but never read any of the books. I am going to make a point to try to find one or two to read. I noticed the books you cited here are from the 1950s but it seems to me that the BBC sets most of their plots in the 1960s.

    I had a complete set of Nero Wolfe paperbacks from Rex Stout…still have most of them in a box somewhere in the basement I think. Stout was not as prolific as Christie but there were a lot of his books and a few years ago I read all of them in one year, in the order they were written. I truly enjoyed “seeing” they characters develop and mature and noticing the political and cultural background of the plots and the biases of the author.

    Your blog is interesting to me and some of it gives me a reason to “learn” a different language. ~~dru~~

    • I have a couple of Nero Wolfe books in my collection. It’s been a while since I read them. I remember that Wolfe was interested in orchids. I have downloaded Gently books up till 1960. I also believe the TV-serie starts in the 60s
