Some of my favourite books. Not all. Some.

R. A. Stapleton
 
The Rachel Papers
The Rachel Papers
"Amis's apparently semi autobiographical debut novel fizzles with teenage lust, humour and characterisation that will pave the way for his future novels."
Trainspotting

"I always refer to a quote from a friend of mine when referring to this novel: ' This is a very, very, very, very, very good book.'"
Complicity (Abacus Paperback)
Complicity (Abacus Paperback)
"Most of Iain Banks's bak catalogue would easily make anyone's 'best of..' list, however this is the first novel I read of his that combined his visonary plotting with his elegant prose."
The Colour of Magic: The First  Discworld Novel: 1
The Colour of Magic: The First Discworld Novel: 1
"The first and one of the best Discworld novels. Written before Pratchett began to believe his own press..."
Life, the Universe and Everything: 3/5 (Hitchhikers Guide 3)
Life, the Universe and Everything: 3/5 (Hitchhikers Guide 3)
"The truth about cricket! The introduction to Bistronomics! Eddies in the Space/Time continuum! Sofas! And war robots! Adams at his sparkling best."
The Tesseract
The Tesseract
"Like the hypercube itself, we never see the actuall event that Garland writes about but the component stories are truly compelling"
Making History
Making History
"Time travel, Nazis and alternate reality make this a rollercoaster ride from the bloke off of QI."
Transition
Transition
"Mind blowing. Makes 'Inception' feel like an episode of 'Two and a Half Men'."
On the Road
On the Road
"Original and best Trans America road trip novel."
Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One
Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One
"Wizarding, detective-ing and wise cracking all in modern day Chicago. A modern gem: easy to read yet fufiling nevertheless."
Labor Day
Labor Day
"A coming of age tale about a man who came to stay over an Amercian holiday. Insightful, fresh and tender."
London Fields
London Fields
"Mart  goes a bit Dickins in this satirical tour de force. The characterisation is fantastic although it may be a little light on plot."
What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
"King of the micro story. This anthology is Carver at his condensed best"
Whatever Love Means
Whatever Love Means
"If 'Time For Bed' was just another iteration of Baddiel's stand up routines, 'Whatever Love Means' was testament that he had shed his performer persona for a true novelist. Touching and brutal."

"My favourite Amis novel. Overshadowed by real-life events that could easily been the basis of another book. The tale of two friends of differing success and the jealousy that surge between them. Epic."
