The Singing Sands

by Josephine Tey

Grade: To Own

Too bad she died. Much too bad.

The character stuff was much better this time. Really, really good, in fact. I loved all the claustrophobia stuff. And Grant talking to himself.

The descriptions of the outer Hebrides were fascinating to me, as usual. Her long descriptive passages are quite awesome, although they sometimes make it hard to read. I think I put "To Own" for the descriptions of claustrophobia and the islands alone.

Oh, I wish she had written more...
