Goodreads reviews: Hurting Distance by Sophie Hannah

Hurting Distance (Spilling CID, #2)Hurting Distance by Sophie Hannah

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Vile. I probably mis-quote John Wyndham describing a series of nasty sadistic thrillers in Random Quest, ‘one has a choice of subject material’. And I’m judging Sophie Hannah for hers. Nasty.

The inaugural post in an occasional series!  (I was going to call it Random Element, and then I thought no, let’s honour the fantabulous sf short story by John Wyndham.  Excellent, recommended, go forth and read it!)

In this series, I’ll take a random element – words out of a random word generator online, out of a casually grabbed book, a snatch of conversation on the radio – and interpret them.  Or possibly interpret the results of inputting these few random terms into the searchbox of a website – Twitter or Youtube or any one of a number of others.  Interpret, in the sense of give meaning to them, a nudge from the Universe, a voice in the (tinfoil-hatted) head, a prod between the shoulderblades.

Hey, it’s every bit as valid as friggin’ astrology, ‘kay?  And it keeps me amused, out of trouble and off the streets.  Where’s the bad?

Today’s random quest – soup, ant, knee.  And knitting.  I always want to add ‘knitting’.
