    Still ploughing through The World Without Us. My word is it tedious - it needs to get to the point, which is "We should all just kick the bucket, now!" - then it's back to Don Quixote. I WILL finish it before I go to uni...

    And, I'm also flicking through an overdue 'easy learning' Spanish words book. I figure since I can't take it back til Monday, I may as well use it [even though it was due back last Monday - I'm such a library heathen...]

    i completely agree! i tried to read it a couple of years ago and didnt get past the first couple of chapters - so unlike other Jane Austen's i've read. Much better (and I dont say this often!) to watch the films/adaptations.
    Even persuasion? It was her boring book IMO.

    Just finished The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (which was great), and I'm now moving on to Huckleberry Finn.

    I've got alot of books that I want to get through before I start my A-Levels - I really need to pick up the pace!

    The Curse of the Gloamglozer from the Edge Chronicles series (I read them in chronological order, not the order in which they were published). I'll read some more when I remember where I put it...

    The Dark Volume by GW Dahlquist. It's the follow up to The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters - good stuff.

    Young Stalin by Simon Montefoire.

    This is interesting for me as I usually stick to classic fiction.

    Do you like it? I got about a quarter in and stopped due to boredom :o: Does something interesting actually happen?

    I am liking it now.
    I feel that it started rather slowly, and the author does go on and spend ages describing things like building projects and the history of some of the landmarks...

    But I am finding it very interesting....I have just begun part five and I still can't work it out...there have been a couple of good twists....

    I actually can't wait till the end to find out whodunnit!

    I haven't heard of the book you mentioned but I do like Oscar Wilde...are you enjoying that one?

    I didn't really get that far into it so I think I might give it another go

    I do like Lady Windemere's Fan. It's only short because it's one of the plays, but it's good. I haven't really read much of his stuff so far- just this, The Importance of Being Earnest and for stories, Dorian Gray and The Happy Prince- but I bought his entire works really cheap from Amazon ages ago and it's just been lying in my room (good as door stop, footrest, makeshift desk...it's huge :p: ) so I thought I'd better read some
