  1. Wow what a long list , Getting rid of Mathew was one I throughly enjoyed and still have on my bookshelf , must try a re read , and "The help " was one I read last year as well , my appetite , as so often happens , was whetted by viewing the film at my sons house , it appealed to all of us , three sons , as we are all quite singular in our interests that was unusual , would watch again .
