TT - look forward to it.

Not sure I've got much space, but I always find some. You can never have enough bookcases.

TT, I fail to see ANY truth in that!

Kite Runner is superb KK. Also, I highly recommend "A Suitable Boy" by Vikram Seth - a fascinating insight into the hindu culture.

I own and have read Mein Kampf. It is indeed poorly written, but you quite scarily find yourself nodding in along with Mr Hitler..

I also really enjoyed Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie.

For no real reason, I pride myself on never having read anything by JK Rowling or Dan Brown.

Am retarded so it doesn't really register

TT - your brains have WHAT?

In my Waterstones shopping bag today:

Antony Beevor - The Battle for Spain
Robyn Young - Crusade
Steven Saylor - Roma
Joshua Ferris - Then We Came to the End

All random purchases, just because I had a gift voucher (apart from the Antony Beevor one, which was based on how much I enjoyed 'Stalingrad').

I used to be a read-aholic at school, but since then, the only thing I read is work related.

Reading has become defunct since the formation of Sky Sports.

I do enjoy Tolkien - not that his writing is always particularly good, but it's the depth behind what he writes. I respect the fact that he spent a massive chunk of his life creating the world he writes about, and that it was initially to give some sort of history and culture to a language he was making up. Reading Lord of the Rings at age 8 is still one of my proudest achievements.

Read it years ago KK - having lived in Pakistan and India, when I came home I found myself reading anything I could lay my hands on that was set in that part of the world. Would deffo not go and see the film - I never see the film of a book I have read - I'd rather keep my own mental imagery rather than have someone else's ideas foisted on me.

Don't get the First crusade, so shite i can't remember the writer!

I am actually going to buy Cry, the Beloved Country now.

I loved that book 

26/03/2008 at 14:19

TT - history, rather than novel? Is it this one?

Not that I've read it - I thought I'd just check so I know what to avoid.

'Persian Fire' was another excellent history book I've read recently - lent it to an ex-forumite and haven't seen it since...
