    La Sombra Del Viento - Carlos Ruíz Zafón.
    It's best in Spanish, but there is an English version too.

    The Scorpio Races
    by Maggie Stiefvater

    I bought it because I thought it was Fantasy - it is not.. or maybe it is but it doesn't feel like it. A bit like Krabat in that sense. It's easily the best book I've read in a while. (Though that may just be because it is so different to what I usually read.)

    The Things They Carried - Tim O'Brien.


    You learn, finally, that you’ll die, and so you try to hang on to your own life, that gentle, naive kid you used to be, but then after a while the sentiment takes over, and the sadness, because you know for a fact that you can’t ever bring any of it back again. You just can’t. Those were the days.

    Can anyone make recommendations on a book that covers how the body works and and the cells, DNA etc.? I'm hoping for a more interesting read than my A level Biology book.

    Hey guys,

    I wrote a book when I was 13 and it's published!! I didnt advertise for ages because I was really embarrassed! But hey, I'm proud of it and have nearly finished the second one!
    It's a fantasy book, there are a couple of mistakes in it (as would be expected!) It's a very easy read as I was thirteen I wrote quite simply.

    Here is the link if any one facies a quick read Feel free to drop me a comment on what you think!

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Darkness-Fal...0602833&sr=8-1

    Ps....You can even get it on kindle for £2 something x

    It's self-published. And, what's worse, from a vanity press.

    i think the bartimaeus trilogy is one of the best in the fantasy genre.. although there has been a 4th book published recently so im not sure if its classified a trilogy anymore but anyway :P

    I think 'trilogy' may have become a blanket term for 'big book'. Stephen Donaldson's 'Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant' ended up as nine books and he's recently added another and is working on the eleventh. Lost count of Dune and Usula le Guinn's 'Earthsea Trilogy' became a quartet.

    Recommend all of these btw.
