2014 Reading: #17 Paul Torday’s Salmon Fishing in the Yemen


Book number 17 in 2014 is another one from my 2014 Mount TBR Challenge. I am pleased to say I can now check off my list Salmon Fishing in the Yemen by Paul Torday. I now only have 8 books left in that challenge to read.

I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book. The reason I had been putting it off was although I had seen good publicity about it, my Mum had found it boring. I was nervous about reading this book in case I too found it boring and found that I would prefer to put it down. However, I quite enjoyed it! To be honest, I did find the scientific side dull as I didn’t understand it, but the story itself was fascinating. I probably read half the book in one day. I liked the original way the book was written and I found this novel a good read. I will write more in my review, but I have rated this book 3 out of 5.
