If you like screwball comedy/humour try Robert Rankin's Brightonomicon, or Alfie Crow's Rant. I loved Christopher Moore's Lamb, but I do know lots of people who didn't like it at all...

If I recall correctly, the story is basically true, but it was somewhat "spruced up" in the re-telling. It is a fantastic story, though. The charity Mortenson set up is real enough, although he was eased out of his chief executive job after a while because, while he was a great spokesman, he wasn't really up to running the charity properly.

There is a follow-up book, as well, which I haven't yet read.

Yes, I think it was a couple of years ago it came to light and he ended up having to repay quite a bit of cash to the charity concerned.

Right To Bear Arms by John Hampden is a good read. Very thought provoking.

Hasn't this been exposed by the Guardian as fake account of a 'real' adventure though?

Now for something completely different - JUST LIKE A WOMAN by Danielle Crowe. Highly enjoyable and most intriguing - but not for the fainthearted (there is a fair amount of sexual activity in it!). It's only available as a Kindle download.

Have you read The Supremes at Earls All You Can Eat? It's fantastic. I couldn't put it down. Angela M

I'm (re-)reading that just now, too. :)

I think it's his best book, the first part especially. I sympathise with the Dad, though; Paul and his Mum are frankly a bit 'superior' and pretentious. Apparently Lawrence in later life considered re-writing it, to do more justice to his Dad.

I resort to classics often. SONS AND LOVERS has engaged me now.

I'm very sorry I didn't realise you couldn't do that here! I'm new to this. Sorry if I annoyed anyone x

I can make a suggestion if you like. Read Passage: The Making of an American Family By John Schissler Jr, Published by Xlibris, 2009. It is one of those books that stays with you. I recently reviewed it so if you want me to send you a copy drop me a line douglasbrough at yahoo.co.uk and ill send it to you. If you are on Facebook the review is in the Hidden History Book Club or failing that if you want the authors details please say and ill pass them on to you

I've been working through the 'Greek Village Series' by Sara Alexi, which offer a thought provoking new slant on Greek village life.

A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole, or J.R. Ward: Black Dagger Brotherhood series. (paranormal romance with a difference).

Twenty-something by Paul L'Estrange. A really good insight into a 23 year old guy's mind as he lives an adventurous life on the backpacking trail trying to get laid all the time. Definitely interesting and all real life!

A couple of authors I've discovered recently that I would highly recommend are Eric Christopherson and Phil Martin. They both have excellent suspense thrillers available on kindle for less than 2.
Frame-Up and The Prophet Motive: A Cult Thriller by Eric Christopherson are stand alone stories.
Child No. 3 (The Little Girl Lost trilogy) and Female No. 2 (The Little Girl Lost trilogy) by Phil Martin are soon to be followed by the final part of the trilogy according to the author's website.
I would also recommend the 6 book Justice series by Mel Comley starting with Cruel Justice (Justice series (Book #1)).
I also recently enjoyed The Back Road by Rachel Abbott, the author of the excellent Only the Innocent.
All the above are available on kindle or any of the various kindle apps at great prices.

Currently I'm reading 2 different translations of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, I love it - i'm sure it's the best novel ever written. The Man Who Laughs and The Hunchback of Notre Dame are a couple more of his masterpieces, and if you want to read the story that was eventually written into Jean Valjean's character have take a deeks at Claude Gueux.

Other books on my kindle app include The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Gentleman by Lawrence Sterne, The Lady With the Dog and Other Stories by Anton Pavlovich Checkhov, History of Tom Jones, a Founding by Henry Fielding and Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens.

The last book i bought and read (RE-read as i read it many many times before) was Up the Down Staircase by Bel Kaufman.

Just finished War's Last Dance by Julia Underwood which was good- and if you are interested in Shakespeare and romance Love's Will by Meredith Whitford is fantastic!
