    I've not heard of that one, but read your other post and was thinking of reading the book you finished. Think i'll get it now I have seen real life reviews. Lol.
    Ugly (as mentioned in other post) is a sad book, real tear jerker and Beyond Ugly is very inspiring. Constance Briscoe is a very strong woman. I recommend them.

    Hmmm, only heard of Stephen King :blushing:, never read any of his. I do not read very much, i'm really fussy with books.
    What is World War Z?

    Never heard of Terry Pratchett? :yikes:

    World War Z is an oral history of the zombie war (obviously a fictional war) - it's a good interesting read :yesnod:

    My sons Dad lives in Reading, shame I never go there, we could have exchanged books :) How much do you think they would be to post? Maybe we could swap for a bit? (i'd say give you but I keep books and re-read them :blushing:)
    I worked in a club in Reading a few times. completely uninteresting but thought i'd give you a useless fact!

    If you like pratchett check out robert rankin, i love him hehe, currently reading necrophenia - funny and very well written.

    I like Pratchett, Robert rankin, Robert Jordon (wheel of time), Tom holt, Jostein Gaarder and books on philosophy and theology so Im in the same boat as you with people not reading the same style hehe.

    Have you read Stephen Kings Dark Tower series? I am not a huge fan of his writing style but thought those books were excellant

    Ahh, sounds like my sisters kinda thing.

    I am reading a War book, but it's real accounts of the final remaining WW1 veterans (sadly the last of whom recently passed away :()

    Haha I have to say I hated his Dark Tower series! I absolutely love Lisey's Story and Duma Key though :yesnod:

    I've vaguely heard of Robert Rankin, I'll check him out thanks!

    So there are no more veterans? :(

    Wee Free Men is a TP book :D I'm reading it now (I read a lot of books at the same time) and it's great. If you want a really good TP book to read you should read Thud! or Monstrous Regiment

    Sadly not from WW1 :( The remaining 2 died recently, not far apart from each other. Henry Allingham died at 113 and was temporarily the oldest man in Britain, Harry Patch was the final at 111.

    They were true heroes and the stories are incredible. Some really heart wrenching stuff. And some really funny stuff too. It's called The Last Post. Good read :)

    So sad :( I don't think I can bear to read things like that. I watched the story about Hiroshima yesterday and can you believe one of the airmen who dropped the bomb feels no remorse?! :mad:

    I adore Of Mice and Men! I had to read it for GCSE english and fell in love with it :D It's one of those books you either love it or you hate it
