    Great book. I read it a while ago and don't remember much of it - except that I thought it was brilliant stuff.
    Yeah, I am really enjoying it (only about 40 pages in though). I'm always suspicious of a narrator that says 'If you will' a lot, I think he is tricking me.

    Well, that translation's a bit of a plot spoiler, actually. The German title is "Der gute Mensch von Sezuan", so 'person' is probably a more accurate translation...

    Sacred Hunger by Barry Unsworth. It's for my Lit class this year. I'm not sure I'd have picked it up otherwise, but it's very good so far and I actually look forward to writing my coursework on it!

    I've just started reading The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov. It's weird - there's some bits I enjoy reading and other bits I can't understand why they're there at all. Maybe it'll all make sense in the end? :confused:
