    Nya, Enduring Love was y12/first year of college, dont know which one you did :rolleyes:

    We did An Inspector Calls at y9, it was good. Re-reading it, though is not such a good idea, its a bit odd at 19 :p:

    I just finished reading 'A Scanner Darkly' by Philip K. ****. Very intiguing book, with a pretty unique and personalised take on drug culture and its pitfalls. I need to get more of his books, that's for sure.

    For now though, I'm going to re-read 'Naked Lunch' by William Burroughs.

    I'm reading Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. So far it's been pretty good. I also liked Wharton's Ethan Frome that I read a year and a half ago.

    It is really interesting, but hard going- v long, and full of facts...can only be taken in small doses.

    Recently read and can recommend:
    "Small Island" Andrea Levy
    "Fingersmith" Sally Waters
    "Michael Palin's Diaries"

    I'm currently reading Frank Zappa's autobiography. Predictably unpredictable.

    Sounds interesting, although tbh the blurb I read wouldn't have been misplaced on the back of a video game...
    Well here is a link I found, check it out

    Cloud Atlas. Very good at the moment, although I'm sure it'll really come into it's own once the stories start to 'unwind' again and come together.

    Captain Corelli's Mandolin for my English A Level. Anyone read it?

    I'm undecided on my own private reading, i will either read "Animal Farm", having just enjoyed "1984", or "Therese Raquin"(by Zola) after enjoying it in the Theatre!

    Yea, it's beautifully written and often poignant, but I'm not entirely convinced it deserved the blockbuster status it achieved. Sebastian Faulkes "Birdsong" is much more powerful.
