Nick Hornby? I read A Long Way Down by him recently, it was enjoyable but slightly too easy to read, if that makes sense... almost like a kid's book. Though I guess sometimes that's what you want!

One of the most AMAZING book's I've ever read. My favourite from Koonz.

All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye by Christopher Brookmyre. If you want a crime book that pay off in the end after patience and confusion but keeps you turning pages at record speed I'd recommend anything by him.

NegativeCreep 27-07-2007 12:12 AM

God i read so many books, I can't remember what im reading is called though. But its by Rosie Childs. Its about her growing up and then near the end (where im at now) its mentioned SI, ED, and a psych ward, so closer to home than i thought it would be. I didnt find it triggering although tbh i dont find things triggering.

I must say i loved all of Torey Haydens books, there is a few not out over here which i got off ebay. Brilliant woman.

I just finished reading "History Lesson For Girls"...really good book until the last few chapters...then it just gets ultra depressing.

And now I'm reading "The Golden Compass" by Phillip Pullman. This book is sooo good! I don't usually do the scifi thing, but this one is working for me:-)

Too lazy to trawl back through this thread but has anyone read The House At Riverton by Kate Morton? Just got this, looked nice and big and juicy (and had a pretty cover, ha)

beautiful&dying 03-08-2007 12:15 PM

I'm reading a Point Horror book i found when I moved. It's reminding me of being 10 and is stragely comforting, even though it's not very good.

bigmouth 03-08-2007 09:35 PM

not sure whether thats why i can't get into it, combined with tiredness and no concentration

Tig 04-08-2007 07:16 PM

I've just read 'Before I Die' by Jenny Downham. I know the title sounds like it should be a depressing book but it really is funny, but there is an underlying sadness to it.
