    Nice!

    I will warn you that it is the most graphic book I've ever read... BUT these violent descriptions are infrequent and definitely necessary. Incredible novel.
    I don't mind the violence really (I'm squeamish about eyes but that's it), it's the sex that makes me cringe. I was reading it on the train yesterday and once I got past the endless descriptions of people's clothes I got into it.

    I was going to recommend it to my mum before I started, because it seemed like the type of thing she'd like but now...no!

    Sleepless by Charlie Huston. About in the future in the US a virus which causes insomnia, eventually leading to death. About a man and his family.

    I have only just started reading it - and oh my god i totally love it. In the chapter it is split between the 3rd person and first person of the main character Park, so you get little flashbacks and snipits of his experiences. Huge use of the word "****" and related variants, but this book already has me hooked.

    probably should be reading books on my english reading list for my coursework, but ah well, this is more fun

    This is such a fantastic book - I'm really hoping the film lives up to it, because by rights it should be absolutely amazing. I hope you enjoy reading it, it's far and away his best.
    Wow, I didn't know they were making a film! I hope they do it justice, I really enjoyed the book.
