  • A good read – recommendations

    I’ve recently read ‘The Rules of Work’ and ‘The Rules of Life’ by Templar

    Though not my favorite…..but they do tell you about the ‘Dark side’ at work and how to make the most of what you have in life…..a good read

    What have you read recently?

              Agree with Dizzy, Kathy Reichs is a good, as is Jodi Picoult - My Sister's Keeper gets me every time I read it!

                Sci-fi buffs might like to pick up some of the saga of seven suns series by Kevin J Anderson. Not quite up to the levels of Clarke and Banks but quite engrossing.

                  If you want something random and funny - Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy (all five books of the trilogy, not just the first one).

                  I must say, I loved the His Dark Materials Trilogy. Northern Lights is the best of the bunch, and how handy that its the first one!

                  Battle Royale. The original novel and the manga book series are actually amazing. The film wanes in comparison because it doesn't go into the politics and psychology like the books do.

                    I heard good things about the film, and is definitely one on my list to watch but i will read the book as well

                        If anyone is interested in Edward VI....no?

                        Anyway, 'The Lost King of England' by Chris Skidmore is very interesting.
                        Not many people talk about him as he did not change much and has been overshadowed by his Dad and half-sisters, but it is rather good!

                          Thought provoking. Especially for someone born in May, and most of whose descendants were also born in the second half of the academic year.
