    I agree.

    I think it's a shame though. It doesn't seem right to have 4* pairs contesting a 2*. (or maybe...it shouldn't seem right that a 2* gets you a berth to the Olympics...)

    The Girl On the Train by Paula Hawkins. This book was recommended here, I think. It is a thriller somewhat in the same vein as Gone Girl. Set in Britain though, which I liked. The main character goes...
