A Prayer For Owen Meany
1.  A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving

The Fermata
2.  The Fermata by Nicholson Baker
The list author says:

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
3.  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

Native Tongue
7.  Native Tongue by Carl Hiaasen
The list author says:

Flashman at the Charge - Vol. IV
8.  Flashman at the Charge - Vol. IV by George MacDonald Fraser
The list author says:
  "What became of Flashman, the bully from 'Tom Brown's School Days'? Cowardice, treachery, and unrepentant mysoginy as the greatest cad of them all changes the course of history. Hilarious."

Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World
9.  Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World by Tim Ecott
The list author says:
  "As close to a great scuba diving book as has ever been written. This is not a novel, it's part autobiography, part history lesson, but it does go some way to expressing the magic of diving."
£7.49   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Pattern Recognition
10.  Pattern Recognition by William Gibson

Automated Alice
11.  Automated Alice by Jeff Noon
The list author says:

The Witching Hour
13.  The Witching Hour by Anne Rice
The list author says:

Round Ireland With A Fridge

Airframe
15.  Airframe by Micheal Crichton

3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Case Studies
16.  Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Case Studies by Martin Millar

The Wasp Factory
18.  The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Harper Perennial Modern Classics
19.  Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Harper Perennial Modern Classics by Hunter S. Thompson

The Art Of Breaking Glass
