  • Did any of you buy Tony's book, any good?

    Comment


    • Confederates (Thomas Keneally)
      You will die in Singapore (a true life account of a soldiers escape from the Japanese army)
      I must away now, I can no longer tarry
      This morning's tempest I have to cross
      I must be guided without a stumble
      Into the arms I love the most

              • James and the giant peach is a must read
                I played sunday league football today.

                Clearly I was the best player on the pitch.

                I scored 5 and made 7 last ditch tackles.

                We lost 5-0 but the rest of my team were sh it!

                  I have "Submission" on my Bookshelf and might give it a go although I`m very tired of it`s theme at the moment. On to The Blood Meridian, I did eventually manage to finish it . But like you imply; It was an extremly emotionally hard book to read. Far too violent.. I`m not sure how his other novels are, but The Road and No Country For Old Men are extremly highly rated so maybe I should give one of them a try.

                    That's also violent. It's a great film too, directed by Coen Brothers with and Javier Barden superb as the villain. It swept the Oscars that year.

                    • "Rude" by Katie Hopkins.
                      Was laughing out loud on the train and in the C&S the other night reading chapter 2.

                      *Note*
                      Probably best avoided if you are a lefty liberal snowflake, easily offended, or have no sense of humour.

                        That`s true, I would have a look at it. A Coen Brothers film usually bodes well. Thanks for your recommendation.
