    The Unconsoled - Kazuo Ishiguro

    Wasn't convinced at first, but once you stop resisting the weirdness it's a fantastic read

    I've finished The Time Traveller's Wife several days ago. It was really good! Now I'm going on to Arthur and George by Julian Barnes.

    Yes yes yes yes yes good good good.
    his best book by far, I've read most of the others, but his style gets on your nerves after a while so I've stopped.
    Murakami is really variable though, imo. I read the Elephant Vanishes, thought it was great, then Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, which I thought was fantastic - then Norweigan Wood which was a bit mediocre, and most recently Kafka on the Shore which I didn't much like at all...
    I think he's perhaps best when he sticks to episodic stories

    Currently reading: The turn of the screw - Henry James

    Started a new book today, and I'm very impressed so far. It's part of The Pendragon Cycle by Stephen Lawhead, and the book itself is called Taliesin. Very nice start!

    Picked it up in an Oxfam bookstore for £2 lol. Well worth it!

    Blindness, by Jose Saramago. It's very good; very sad, but I hear it gets more uplifting later on. I'd forgotton how great it is to read a really excellent book.

    Is it as good as her Magician's Guild books?

    Changes for the Chalet School - Elinor M Brent Dyer

    Its okay - has teh same compelling style of writing. There are many similarities in the writing styles (unsurprisingly), as well as in certain mentor/student relationships
