The Curious incident of the dog in the night time by Mark Haddon. It was suggested to me by my lecturer, its more interesting than I thought it would be.

I've been reading Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. It's really good. And I've literally just started Philip Roth's Sabbath's Theater but don't know that I can really read two books at once so may have to abandon that for a bit. Certainly looks interesting though I also need to read Captain Corelli's Mandolin over half-term for English.

'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee currently, but I need a couple of new books to read, preferably dystopian, for someone who enjoyed 'The Road' and '1984', any recommendations?

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Liking it so far but not as much as One Hundred Years of Solitude, that book is actually :coma:

I love how he tells everything like it's a story-tale
How are you finding At Home?

I'm really enjoying it! I've got to say more than I anticipated. Been a good time killer today, i've been ill in bed all day!
I still think my favourite is A Walk in the Woods though!

Heehee I read it when all three books were combined, took me a fair old while but it was worth it!!
Haha! I was reading it as all 3 books in one but it was very slow going, so I got the 3 book edition in a charity shop (£2.79 and they hadn't been read!!!) and now it's going very well.
