Suggest Risen from the Ashes, Freddie Jones. Amazon. Good easy read, self made millionaire who was involved in an affair which blew out of all proportions. HE WAS DRIVEN TO DESTRUCTION ENDING IN A NEAR FATAL AIRCRASH WHICH ENDED HIS EMPIRE, HE SURVIVED and rebuilt his life and fortune. Somewhat parralel to 50 shades of grey, but for real.

Try Dodge City (a coppers tale) good read

Dodge City: A coppers tale This is the first if two books telling the story of a young lad who joins the police in 1977 and his journey through the miners strike, ripper enquiry and the bradford city football fire. Its hardhitting and very honest - worth a read

Try a little obscure book called the Q7 @ the V8 by AJ Hooper. A quick flick and a hilarious skit on the G8 summit in northern ireland with an international tryst, another adrian mole. Can't wait for sequel. you will find in teen section where dairy of adrian mole hung out and which had half the adult population in kinks

Do you actually know the meaning of the word "autobiography"? Not that your trash will be welcome anywhere else, mind you.

Now sod off and take your garbage with you.

Doesn't augur well for the book if the author can't tell a biography from a work of fiction! Nor does the author's inability to write a coherent post bode well for her work. Any idea what "half the population in kinks" means?

I Readalot says:
I have been trying to decipher that, the definitions for kink I have come up with are:
A sharp twist or curve in something that is otherwise straight.
A flaw or obstacle in a plan/operation
A quirk of character or behaviour
A person's unusual sexual preference

None of which seem to fit. As for half the adult population, half of where? UK/Europe/US/the world?

Hi IR

No - I couldn't find anything that fits either! I'm still trying to imagine Adrian Mole as a dairyman rather than a diarist but somehow I don't see it.

I can"t see him milking cows, doesn't really work. Adrian Mole wasn't actually in the teen section either such a thing didn't really exist back in 1982.

Hey, folks, it's been a while. Our dear self-pluggers seem to have followed the dinosaurs, but still reappear now and again... and quality of their writings seem to never change. Good to know there are some constant things in the world :)

I would suggest The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy, which basically lives up to its hype - as does His Dark Materials. Both very, very good. In addition I would suggest Fatherland by Robert Harris, a dystopian work (1963 and President Hitler is running Europe) with an ending to blow your head off.

It is written by a debut author, a retired doctor, based on true stories he had come a cross as a Surgical trainee several years ago.
The message from the author is 'Have a heart that never hardens, a touch that never hurts and a smile that never tires'
