  • Beyond This Place by A J Cronin. My first Cronin was The Citadel, which although depressing ended well, so then I read The Stars Look Down, which was depressing enough that I avoided him for a couple of years. This was less depressing! And also not overly preachy - the author does like to make Important Social Points in his writing, but it works with the story rather than being bolted on.
  • One Of Us by Michael Marshall Smith. This was OK; a somewhat uneven blend of satire, noir, and cod philosophy. I made it to the end but am unlikely to re-read.
