Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris. Set in a boys' grammar school with two time-frames and two narrators, which I didn't realize at first so there was some confusion in the beginning. And also, I was almost halfway through before I realized that I didn't know who the second narrator was. The last part kept me up last night and oh boy, what an ending that was.

Anyone else here has read this book? The first few chapters made me think of Enid Blyton's school series - Malory Towers and St Clare's and Whyteleafe - to see the same terms and phrases used in this book brought back fond memories of them but there the similarities end. This is a dark psychological thriller and when I said dark, I meant DARK!

Starting on Sally Beauman's Destiny. Few pages in and I'm already hooked, picturing Gabriel Macht as Edouard de Chavigny ::GLEE:: As for Helene, I'm not sure yet, maybe Gillian Anderson? Anna Torv?
