Books I have read in 2011
"A book about camels. No Really."
"Awesome Cyberpunk novel."
The Weirdstone of Brisingamen
"Fun, but not really for adults."
As I Lay Dying
"A book from the master of narrative."
"One of the most gripping and amusing books I have read for a while. As one reviewer put it, "McCarthy, but funny""
To a Mountain in Tibet
"Another poignant, beautiful book from my favourite living travel author."
No Country for Old Men
"If you are just a fan of the film, rather than McCarthy, then this is worth reading for the extra Chirgurh; surely one of the finest anti-heros."
"A snapshot of the bizzare underbelly of 50s Knoxville which is funny and sad in equal measure."
The Fall (Penguin Modern Classics)
"An essential, lucid, disquieting read."
The Dog of the South
"A strange, almost surreal, funny book that put me more in mind of Hunter S. Thompson than Portis's True Grit."
The Girl On The Landing
"I picked this book up from a charity shop in Chester as I had nothing else to read. It was enjoyable and well paced, as much about identity as it was mental illness with plenty to think about."
"An epic tale of the American wild west both real and mythical in an istant."
Journey to the Jade Sea
"A self depreacting account of a very impressive journey which the author downplays in that particular anglo way. Gives you itchy feet!"
Nerd Do Well
"A gentle read for the most part which kicks into gear when talking about his passions of comedy, films and performing."
The Sunset Limited: A Novel in Dramatic Form
""logical" conclusion of existentialism clashes with the steadfast faith of a ex-con come Samaritan in this thoughtful play. Sorry. Novel in Dramatic form!"
Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
"A very readable, if not essential, yarn about the nature of reality and the effects of fame on the psyche."
The Stonemason: A Play in Five Acts (Vintage International)
"A sombre play from McCarthy's pen; everything from family ties to civil rights to Marxism are in the mix."
A Clockwork Orange (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Burgess plays with language like no other author I've read to bring this dystopian future to life."
World War Z
"I didn't like the dodgy politics or a few cringe worthy moments - dog handlers & some "USA, USA", but other than that a fun, authentic feeling read."
The Call of the Wild
"A great story told from the point of view of a dog who descends into atavism. Put me in mind of the wolf sections of McCarthy's The Crossing."
Batman: Arkham Asylum Anniversary Edition
"The best artwork I've ever seen in a graphic novel and the overall comic is up there with The Watchmen"
A Brief History of Time
"A book I've intended to read for a long time. I was aware of most of the theories contained, but the beauty is how Hawking lucidly shows their links and progress in answering the ultimate question."
"I've laboured on and off with this since book 16 or so. I was never really fully engaged by it and found it a strain to care about the characters and story arcs."
A Clash of Kings (Reissue) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 2)
"I decided that I would start on book 2 after HBOs TV series of book 1, A Game of Thrones. The book was long, but pulls you in and the world, Martin's greatest accomplishment feels rich and deep."
Not Before Sundown
"Myth brilliantly woven into reality to build an arresting story of love and loneliness in modern society."
