Book and Film Challenge Update


I have finished book number 59, The Sunday Philosophy Club: An Isabel Dalhousie Mystery by Alexander McCall Smith. Isabel Dalhousie is a fortyish editor of the Journal of Applied Ethics and moderator of The Sunday Philosophy Club–if and when they ever meet. She lives in Edinburgh, Scotland and watches over the comings and goings of her niece Cat, the owner of a deli. The book begins with a tragedy. A young man falls to his death from the upper level of the Usher Hall Concert Hall and Isabel is right there to see it happen. The incident so disturbs Isabel that she starts to investigate a bit into the life of the young man who fell. She seems to want some closure to the incident. She visits his flatmates and where he worked. And she also goes about her normal life as well. But things about young Mark’s death still bother her and she finds herself being pulled deeper into it. Perhaps it has to do with her position as a reviewer of articles of applied ethics. Perhaps it’s more than that. Fifty-nine down, 41 to go.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
