Excursions

by Amit Gawande

I finished (finally!) reading 4:50 from Paddington today. I was about to rate this book a lot lower than what I eventually did. The meandering second half - a difficult feat in an already short book - made me forget how brilliant the first half of the book was.

I felt this was a short story that Christie wrote first and then rewrote it for a book. Wish she hadn’t.
