    I've finished The Collector by John Fowles which was (on the whole!) fantastic, I'd recommend it. Has anyone else read it, or anything else by him? Now I've just started My Sisiter's Keeper, another by Jodi Picoult, and also Un Sac de Billes by Joseph Joffo.

    I just finished reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and I really did love it. I want to see the film now and read more Hunter S. Thompson articles and books. I love the writing style, essentially a first-person account of a journalist assignment the protagonist is sent to cover in Las Vegas. The books so simply written and yet the subject matter and some of the bizarre events that occur leave the audience wondering what is really happening and what is simply a manifestation of the protagonists drug-fuelled trip (excuse the pun). Its a brilliant juxtaposition between a book that is so accessible because of the unconvoluted, journalistic writing style and the surreal non-sensical plot (which spirals out of control with very few consequences) which can make it, at times, difficult to comprehend.

    Northern Lights - Phillip Pullman
    Have been looking at this book for years and thinking it's a pretty cover and I should read it. Now I've finally got around to it and it's very hard to put down. I want a daemon!
