Two new fiction books brought to the end of a group of general fiction bookcases. The first was Girl Reading by Katie Ward. I didn't understand this book at all, it was about a series of women who posed for paintings. The whole purpose of the book completely escaped me and it gets 1/10.
The second was The Way Inn by Will Wiles which was a Kafkaesque story about a hotel. The protagonist was on a course at a nearby conference centre but was unable to attend it any more and became trapped in the hotel's increasingly complex world. A parody of the corporate world we live in. This is a book I would have loved in my student days, my tastes have changed slightly since then but it still gets 8/10.
