Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 19/12/22

A busy week on the roads – I’m not game to brave the shops so here’s what arrived in the mail:

Cold People by Tom Rob Smith (available 1st February) was a surprise from Simon & Schuster. Set in a time when the world has fallen to an omnipotent force, all humans are forced to relocate to Antarctica. It’s the story of their journey and adaptation to the cold, new life on the ice.

Lessons by Ian McEwan is about Roland, set against a backdrop of various world crises (Cuban and Suez missile crises, Chernobyl). But for Roland it’s about young love, a missing wife and a search for family history.

Breathless: The Scientific Race to Defeat a Deadly Virus by David Quammenis the story of COVID-19 from animals to humans and beyond. It looks at the warnings leading up to COVID-19, how the virus mutates and attempts to control it.
