I'm currently reading Turncoat by Jim Butcher, which is book 11 in his Dresden Files series. At first i was a little hesitant to buy it as i thought it wouldn't enjoy them but after temporarily running out of books to read, i decided to give it a chance and i was glad i was wrong! At the moment, its one of my favourite series and have often found myself laughing out loud, most likely gaining me plenty of odd looks but i've loved them all. Now i just need to find something to read next.

L Pedley.

I have not read any of the Ian Flemming novels. It was a tradition that my father took me as a child to the pictures (sorry to show my age) when each and every James Bond film first came out. I loved them, so perhaps should try the books. Would I be dissapointed I wonder after all these years?

The books bear little resemblence to the films but are well worth reading.

'Blood's A Rover' by James Ellroy. And just finished 'Pocket Notebook' by police officer turned author Mike Thomas, which I couldn't put down.

It's brilliant, isn't it? I'm surprised he hasn't written anything of the same calibre

I have just finished "All Our Worldly Goods" by Irene Nemirovsky. This women could teach very many authors how to write the family epic. She cuts all the boring stuff and sticks to the iportant facts .
A remarkable and memorable novel.

Which other ones have you read CS?
I thought the "Helsinki Roccamatios" was an interesting idea, but not absorbing like "Life of Pi". I haven't read anything else he has written so far apart from those two.
"Beatrice and Virgil" looks as if it could be good, but is expensive at the moment (unreleased so no reviews yet if anyone was intending to check it out).

They're great, very different from the films though. Obviously you should start with Casino Royale but it doesnt hurt to not follow them in order. My personal favourite is From Russia With Love, my worst is Goldfinger.

I just finished My Name is Red and still have Revolutionary Road on the go. But I feel the need for something quite different so I am going to start reading A Scanner Darkly.

I reasonly started Revolutionary Road & had to pick something else up to read along side it as its so depressing (Frank! I just want to slap him!) So I am hugely enjoying Twenty Wagging Tails by Barrie Hawkins-True stories of one man and his wife taking in orphaned & abandoned German Shep Dogs (I adore the breed and have two long haired myself so my views are probably a bit bais!) I think everyone should read it, but dog lovers will particularly enjoy. Also have read about 150 odd pages of Fallen, a YA read and so far nothing has happened so hope it picks up. Next on my list is "The winter house" by Nicci Gerrard and that has some rave reviews so looking forward to it.

March by Geraldine Brooks.set during the first year of American Civil War, 1861.The protagonist is lifted straight out of L.M Alcott's, LITTLE WOMEN, the father, Mr. March.The novel details his life story pre marriage/fatherhood plus his time in the war as unit chaplin.The dreadful events of the cival war are conveyed in letters home to Mr.March's letters home to his wife and daughters.Although taking a minor character from a classic novel and creating another story isn't unique,this is an enjoyable read.
