Stand On Zanzibar
Stand On Zanzibar
"A bit hard to get into but absolutely gripping once you're past the 1st couple of chapters. A future distopia novel that seems frighteningly probable."
Girlfriend in a Coma

"The best book Coupland has ever written. Great storytelling, a fantastic plot and an ending which really throws you. You'll read this again and again."
The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set)
The Lord of the Rings (3 Book Box set)
"There's little to say that hasn't already been said about this classic. Quite simply it is the finest fantasy work ever and worth reading even for those who find the genre cliched and trite."

"Though written as childrens books this trilogy is a dark, powerful and moving story. None of the soppiness or moralising that dogs Harry Potter. I cried at the end, so will you."
"Brave New World" (SparkNotes)

"A futuristic sci-fi classic. Food for thought on the value of technology and civilisation"

2001: A Space Odyssey

"Arthur C. Clarke is possibly the best sci-fi author who ever lived and his book is one of his best. A fantastic story which will keep you engrossed throughout. Also check out Rendezvous With Rama."
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
"The best trilogy in 5 parts that i've ever read. A hilarious guide to the workings of the universe, the meaning of life and why you should always have a towel."
Small Gods: (Discworld Novel 13) (Discworld Novels)
Small Gods: (Discworld Novel 13) (Discworld Novels)
"A God reincarnated as a turtle, naked philosophers and a glimpse into the workings of high politics all come together seamlessly in this pant-wettingly funny installment of the discworld series."
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China
"An amazing true story that gives the reader a glimpse behind the veil of secrecy surrounding China during the Communist revolution. Horrific in parts but you won't want to put it down."
The Midwich Cuckoos
The Midwich Cuckoos
"One of Wyndham's best and a forerunner to films like children of the corn. Creepy and heartwarming in equal parts this book looks at people's reactions to a very personal alien invasion."
