Just read A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the first of the Sherlock Holmes books. Ashamed to say that its the first of his books that I've read, certainly won't be the last though. Fantastic stuff which has withstood the test off time so well.
Going to start my summer reading on the plane this week, probably start with a bit of Fitzgerald, then Hemingway, Turgenev, Gogol, King and maybe Faulkner...
I'm currently about halfway through 'El Narco: Inside Mexico's Criminal Insurgency' by Ioan Grillo. Good, if somewhat worrying reading.
My wife laughed so hard her tits shook.
Have a 13 hour flight to look forward on Thursday, any recommendations for a gripping book?
Rage by Wilbur Smith. You'll get lost in it.
I bought that last week, haven't finished the book I'm on yet but as soon as iam rage is next, + your right you do tend to get lost in his books
If you haven't already,I can really recommend this.A good and troubling read.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Amexica-Along-Borderline-Ed-Vulliamy/dp/1847921280
Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancy. The Cold War turns hot and the Soviets cross the IGB. One of Clancy's very best.
Catcher in the Rye. Only a short book.
Finished "The Illearth War" and reading "The Power that Preserves" (Book three of the First Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen Donaldson)
Love them. Have read them all and used to quite regularly read the whole book in one sitting. Not brilliant literature by any means but wow, what a storyteller. I love Africa too, have family out there. Rage is my favourite by a distance though, you're in for a treat mate.
that's a ringing endorsement. It's also the only good thing I have to say about that book!
Personally, it's one of my favourite books but I can see me perhaps hating it more as I grow older (only 20). Read it first when I was 16 or so and thought it was freakin' awesome.
Just got a download of the whole Jack Reacher series for my Kindle, are they any good?
