What book are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading a book related to wrestling - the third book that I have read by this particular author (a former/occasional wrestler himself) - Hardcore Diaries by Mick Foley :thumbsup:

Can't wait until July though when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be out - I think this thread (if it is a successful and lasting thread :p) will be full of people reading it then!

Never read any of the Potter Books, or watched the films... and never will

Currently reading The Black Book by Orhan Pamuk, On Beauty by Zadie Smith, and trying desperately not to be drowned by Dante's Divine Comedy

Think it too high brow for me. My review would be eccletic mass of words that don't make sense.

The Dictionary. I'm up to o now! (started when I was 5.)

What an interesting thread and nice for a change!

I've just finished the Old Kingdom Trilogy by Garth Nix - highly recommended. (Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen)
#10
if you like " martina cole " try " mandasue heller" i was recomended her and i really enjoyed them, very simular to cole but little more deeper. :)
#11
Honestly I've never heard of either of them, but to be fair, although I like reading, I'm not the most literary adventurous person.
#12
Swiadectwo ("The Testimony") by S. Dziwisz, the personal secretary archbishop of pope John Paul II. Very good read. It's probably the best description of the communism and the struggle for freedom in Poland after second world war until the victory of Walesa and Solidarnosc I have ever read.
#13
reading 'Naked empire' by Terry Goodkind its the umpteenth (8th i think)book in the brilliantly aclaimed (by me! :) )sword of truth series.

Seriously give em a go the first one is called 'Wizards first rule'

try on! go for martina cole first as a bit cooler, they come under a thriller but some of the books are a bit " uck" but still cant put them down, have a read and let me know what you think.!!:thumbsup:

Michael Crichton "State of Fear" (in Russian :)).
#16
I'm a bit pants at bothering with reading novels, but i think the last one i read was one of my daughters. It is called The Wish List by Eoin Colfer -brilliantly written, funny, emotional and thought provoking

I'm a big fan of both Martina Cole and M Heller, I probably prefer MH overall though - I live a lot nearer to Manchester than London.

If you like the more macarbre side of these authors, try The Birdman & The Treatment by Mo Hayder. Disturbing. Don't bother with her other books (Toyko & Bird Island, IMHO).

ta i will give it a go, i tend to get board reading the same author, as in the end you generally know what the outcome will be, so to try a different author will be great. :thumbsup:


and ment to say i do prefer heller too.

Nope, though it's been mentioned on My Family in one episode :giggle:

I've only actually played the games - which obviously are based off the books - what do you think of the books then?

I have just started a book called Billy Blue Hat, it's quite interesting - have any of you heard of it?

I'm still on the same book that I was - haven't found time to read much more of it :-(

#38
Congrats on 500 posts :)

I have read many books since then :) I read a lot because its one of the few things I can still do (concentration isnt great, but they are books I have read many times before so dont struggle with concentration as much with them)

Thanks :)

I always like to read a lot usually too, but like I said I've had other things taking up my time so I haven't been able to read much more of it :)

I am currently reading The Oyster House Siege by Jay Rayner. Bought it on the off chance it might be good. Plus when I say "I am reading it", I am at least until I lose it as most books I buy. :)
