My Journey in Writing

My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.

The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers - Alexandre Dumas I'm not sure exactly what to make of The Three Musketeers. It wasn't what I was expecting, which I think shows just how much dramatic licence movies can take with books. It was certainly more sexual than I was expecting, although that's probably not surprising when considering when and where it was written. I didn't appreciate Porthos' helpful suggestion that the best thing that D'Artagnan should do was gain a mistress and found the comic relief we were supposed to gain from this woman's husband and his constant bumbling unfunny, although again, probably not that surprising considering what I mentioned earlier. The ending also seemed flat to me. However, there were still many enjoyable moments.
