Just finished "The Loved One" by Evelyn Waugh... funny but rather macabre and got me thinking about things I'd rather not think about!

Im reading 'Education of A Felon' by Edward Bunker. Its really great. he's like a convict that wrote a bunch of crime books...very good. this is the story of his life. Its really well written.

Basically it's poking fun at the American commercialisation of the funeral industry. There's this huge funeral park called Whispering Glades for the humans, which tries to make as much money as possible by exploiting "the Waiting Ones" who are mourning the loss of their "Loved One". And there's a similar enterprise called "The Happier Hunting Ground" which tries to be like Whispering Glades, which is for pets!

I love that book. Casandra's great. Have you seen the recent film with Romola Garai as Cassandra, because she plays the part really well.

I'm re-re-reading The Watch House by Robert Westall. It's a truly brilliant ghost story - and certain characters from The Machine Gunners and Fathom Five make special guest appearences
Ooh, i will have to check that out after i've finished it

I started The Broker by John Grisham the other day, borrowing it off my mate's dad of all people! I've never read anything by him and I'd grown a little weary of reading stuff by Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown all the time (literally my last 7 books - about 5 months of reading every night!) and I'm liking what I've read so far. I'd heard good things about John Grisham before but had never really bothered reading any of his books and if they're all like this so far then I may be getting some more from the library

Just started reading my old (well, relatively not so old) books by James Clemens... Wi'tch Fire (although the apostrophe could well be after the 't' in "witch"... I never remember). I honestly cannot remember what the series was about - but I remember thinking that they weren't all that fantastic. I also remember not really reading them properly, so I figure a re-run is in order .

Colby Buzzell's 'My War' - regarding his experiences of serving in Iraq in 2003-2004. Disturbing read, comical at times, comically disturbing.

Prior to that, John Simpson's book "The Wars Against Saddam" - well balanced book, very good.
