Bookish in the Mitten

Book reviews, book recommendations, book talk, and a little knitting

Well, this is timely. If you’re looking to completely escape the reality of life as we know it, this might not be the book for you.

The Last Hours is a novel set in 14th Century England as the Black Death (plague) first makes itself known. There is self-imposed quarantine, a supply shortages, and suspicion of others.

I read this about six weeks ago when COVID-19 was just background noise. The story was entertaining, with a couple of very evil characters, and was also somewhat predictable. I enjoy historical fiction in this time period, so I expected that I would want to continue the series, but when I finished I found I had spent all the time I wanted with these characters.

Read more here; I got the hardcover from my library but it’s available in paperback: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35477888-the-last-hours
