The Quiet Soldier by Adam Ballinger
barbara erskine - midnight is a lonely place ( in between 'the handmaid's tale', '1984', and 'doctor faustus' and a biology book which is absolutely rubbish and i wouldn't recommend it to anyone.)
Jeffery Deaver - The Coffin Dancer
"La Peste" by Albert Camus (to exercise my French, which I've been neglecting after the eaxm), and some of Gogol's short stories, albeit in English translation.
The Kite Runner- khaled Hossieni
'The Mayor of Castorbridge' ~ Thomas Hardy
I know Hardy's pretty heavy but I saw a TV adaptation of this a couple of years ago and thought it was a really interesting plotline so decided to get it out from the library. :P I'm getting through it so it's not too bad.
i'm reading Birdsong in preparation for ww1 literature next year
Madame Bovary - G. Flaubert
Most pretentious book ever for a 17 year old to read.
A Brief History of Time - Stephen Hawking.
Read the first chapter, was like every other book i'd read on the subject. Claims not to be a history of physics bla bla bla, then goes on to give the full history of physics and merges into space-time theorem. Reminds me of In Search Of Schroedingers Cat.
'The Fortress of Solitude' - Jonathan Lethem
Loving it so far, don't know why I've started another book when I should be revising...
Double Fault by Lionel Shriver, getting better as it goes on.
