The Books I Read in 2008

Mike Eagling "Mike Eagling"
 
Dawn of the Dumb: Dispatches from the Idiotic Frontline
Dawn of the Dumb: Dispatches from the Idiotic Frontline
"Arguably the funniest book I have ever read. Brooker turns his acerbic wit onto TV, idiots and just about anything else that iritates him, in this second collection of Grauniad columns. Sheer genius."
Northern Lights: Adult Edition (His Dark Materials)
Northern Lights: Adult Edition (His Dark Materials)
"Lyra's world is beautifully realised in this thoughtfully spellbinding fantasy. Forget "Harry Potter", Pullman's epic is the true classic of its age."
The Subtle Knife: Adult Edition (His Dark Materials)
The Subtle Knife: Adult Edition (His Dark Materials)
"At first I wasn't sure about this second installment in Pullman's trilogy but by the cliffhanger ending I was transfixed."
The Amber Spyglass. (His Dark Materials): Adult Edition
The Amber Spyglass. (His Dark Materials): Adult Edition
"Thrilling, sad, but true—true as any book about Angels, Witches and Daemons can be."
The Handmaid's Tale (Contemporary Classics)

The New MIDI Files
The New MIDI Files
"A little out of date and arguably overly technical if you use a modern DAW but interesting and informative, especially if you have limited knowledge of "traditional" instruments like me."
