    Re: Recommend a book.

    I read 'The Last Good Man' whilst on holiday last month, it was very good. It's by a couple of Swedish film/book guys who write under a pseudonym. A. J. Kazinski, that's it. Anyway, I recommend it.

    Re: Recommend a book.

    The Lost Fleet Series by Jack Campbell, more than a few grammar/speeling errors (and a few Americanisms and at least one made up word, which I suppose could come under an Americanism, they do like to butcher the English language don't they?) but an enjoyable read if your into space based sci-fi and can overlook these minor foibles.

    Good to see a couple of mentions for The Dark Tower series.

    Hoping someone has got me The Wind Through the Keyhole for Christmas!

    Re: Recommend a book.

    I've just finished 'The Art of Racing in the Rain' by Garth Stein. It has cars and dogs in it, so it's good, in a manly way. It's got love and relationships in it, which is good for the lasses too...

    Finished reading 'Dancing with Eternity' today. Very comical take on sci-fi. Highly recommended.

    I would recommend Christopher Moore's A drity job. It's exciting and hilarious. I had so much fun reading it.

    Re: Recommend a book.

    Cheers. Those books are very intriguing. We discover something new everyday. It makes me sad sometimes that I won't have enough time in my life to read all the awesome books. :/

    As you were.
