Couldn't remember where or if we had this thread at all on V3.

Just finished reading Angela's Ashes. I've read it before but it didn't fail to make me cry!!

Next - Birdsong, Sebastian Faulks, again read it before but I love it.

Bret Harts autobiography, great insight into the world of professional wrestling and a real eye opener.

Just finished No Beast so fierce by Edward Bunker. Very good writer.

Started Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Excellent read so far. I wonder how it ends?

Good thriller but his alt-fiction work as Michael Marshall Smith was much better IMO especially "Spares" and "Only Forward". He's just released a new book as MMS so I'll be checking that out when I get chance.

I started that about a year ago, thought it was dead boring, and stopped. I think in the 50's or whenever it was written it may have been considerd 'racy' but now it was just crap. A very long, drawn-out, nothing happens, blog. That's just my opinion!

On the Road was required reading for trendies in the 1960s as was Another Country by James Baldwin.
I have been working my way through a number of Gerald Seymour books.

If you liked Angelas ashes you'll love Paddy Clarke ha ha ha by Roddy Doyle...if you dont cry at the end you'd break your toe if you kicked you in the heart.

Both great books. On The Road especially. Just an incredibly chilled read. Try Big Sur too.

I've been reading this, seeing as it's Tour de France month:
Image
Everyone goes on about how he blows the cover on drugs in cycling, but I though it was just a rather ordinary biography. He doesn't really say anything we didn't already know, and just seems bitter that he never made it as a pro. It's a good biography, but it's not changed my world.

I could not disagree with you more. American psycho is the only book I've ever read that I wish I hadn't. On the road was meh.

Really? Is it that bad? Do tell.

I was wishing I never started The Road by Cormac McCarthy during, man it was it HARD work, but I perservered and for that I got a 9.5/10 book.

Agree about On The Road.
