Bought it few weeks ago mate. Looking forward to it.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Anyone read it ? Started it on Sunday and finished it last night. What a brilliant book
Sounds interesting. Reading the reviews Dolly Parton read it and rated it. @Phoebica will now.
Haha I’ve already read it. I didn’t rate it as highly as most people, but it’s a nice book.
Lord of the flies
I can see why it’s a text used in education. A good read and captivating towards the final third (unlike Arsenal)
If I had one gripe, it’s hard to know about the imagery Golding is trying to create. Very difficult to picture it in your head unless you’ve been on a desert island yourself or watched numerous repeats of Dr No.
What I loved about that book like 1984 they command your complete concentration. Feel like you’ve attained something when you read books like that.
Definitely. It was an easier read than Bleak House but you still couldn’t half read the book and half watch football.
1984 is a top book as well. I enjoyed reading the part where the main character is reading from a book and the excerpts are written out in the story.
Fahrenheit 451 - the book burning book.
and “Oliver VII” a short Hungarian novel about a young King of a fictional Central European nation who desperately doesn’t actually want to be King or rich and so stages a coup against himself so he go into hiding in Italy and get a taste of a normal life - which turns into him becoming a down-and-out con artist with his trusted former staff.
@Phoebica you seen there is book about a murderous love island (haters will say this is an improvement)
Is there a dwarf and a man with 3 nipples on that murderous island?
Definitely reading that. Looks like the trashy stuff I love, lol.
@SRCJJ seen this on Amazon not sure if it would be something you’d be interested in mate
Having worked on the show since its inception Jonathan Grade gives a first-hand account of this iconic production. Golazzo: The Football Italia Years takes a nostalgic look back with some stories from behind the scenes in the days when Italian football ruled the world.
