I had to put some of my current books in progress aside to pick up Whose Body by Dorothy L. Sayers this weekend. I didn’t think I was going to make it to my Murder on Mondays book group this month because I was hoping to go out of town but that didn’t work out and so I’ll go to book group.

I’m almost done with the book and I should have it finished in time for book group. Here’s where I make a big confession, I’m not a fan of Dorothy L. Sayers. I know, what kind of a mystery fan am I right? According to the blurb on the front cover she is only “One of the greatest mystery story writers of this century.”

I read two of her books many years ago and I couldn’t connect. Perhaps I was looking for a more action type book or maybe I wasn’t used to a certain type of writing. I have since then read many more book set in that time frame and have enjoyed them a lot. Still it is a bit hard I think to pick up a book by an author who you’ve had a hard time with and fully enjoy it. I do try to keep an open mind but in this case I don’t think I’m doing as good a job about it.

Anyway, what I’ve read so far I have enjoyed quite a bit. There are definitely a lot of flashes of great writing and witty characters. I will let you know what I think once I’m done and of course I look forward to hearing what the other book group memebers thought.

I actually need to write up a couple of other reviews. I haven’t forgotten but I just got, um, sidetracked. In any case is there one writer you hate to admit that you don’t like?
