Apple have or are making 4 series of the books.
I think I only watched season 1 but I’ve just seen there’s a Season 2 to watch.
Thanks for the heads up via the book post yy

I found the first 40 to 50 pages such hard work that I put the book down for a couple of weeks. I started again and enjoyed it eventually. I'm hoping the next one will be easier to read , otherwise I'll forget the rest of the series.

A friend always reads 100 pages of a book but if they don’t like it by then they give up.

Thanks for the “give a book 2 goes” reminder.
‘Think I’ll buy the 1st two Slough House books. If I like ‘em the rest can be on my pressie list 🤪

I remember starting Downbelow Station and not getting on with it. Months later I gave it another go and it was a brilliant sci fi novel.

Recommended. The books are so much better than the tv series. Herrons older books (ZoeBeam) are a bit long winded but that's all part of learning the craft.
