    Have you only just read Catch-22 or is that a repeat reading?

    I just finished reading 'Sharp Teeth' by Toby Barlow. It's about werewolves in LA, and it's all in free verse. Really original idea, well executed and an addictive story as well! I was a bit sceptical about the verse before I started it, but as soon as I started the book I was hooked. Definitely reccommend it.

    Before that I read 'The End of Mr Y' by Scarlett Thomas. Really good. Lots of ideas crammed in there, explains quantum physics in a page, but a really good, thought-provoking book. Bit disappointed by the ending, but the storyline and the way the book looks (the edges of the pages are black! It's about a cursed book) made up for it!

    Also reccommended by moi (the prestigious critic, lol) is 'The Book of Lost Things' by John Connolly. I picked it up in the Waterstone's 3 for 2 offer to make up my 3 books, and hadn't heard of it. It turned out to be my favourite of the 3! Really good fantasy coming of age story influenced by the sinister side of fairy tales, with good background notes at the end. Excellent.

    The shadow of the wind by Carlos ruiz Zafon

    I'm not far into it, but so far there's a lot of mystery and it could go any way. Very well written in my opnion though - for a book that isn't a "classic" of any kind.

    *yeah, I'd like to edit in that at some points it's a bit crappily written, but I dunno if that's the author or the translator.

    If you're going to repeat lines with particular significance and stuff, make them GOOD ones!
