Last Read of 2017: Clockwork or All Wound Up by Philip Pullman




"And once you've wound up a clock, there's something frightful in the way it keeps on going at its own relentless pace. Its hands move steadily round the dial as if they had a mind of their own. Tick, tock, tick, tock!"


A Very Happy 2018 to all.

Oh and the book: Deliciously creepy.

    1. Hope the year is going well, Prashant. This was the first time I read Pullman though I too had heard of him.
