Blog: BOOK REPORT
Books read on holiday (including one I meant to take with me, but got excited about and read before I left) were:
One Hit Wonderland, by Tony Hawks (OK, except the bit about going to Albania with Norman Wisdom which was LOVELY and MOVING and GRATE)
Dead Air, by Iain Banks (GRIPPING, which was a nice surprise as all the reviews'd said it was rubbish. I especially liked the fact that half the action takes place round the corner from my work, I guess that's what it's like for people who live in New York who read comics eh?)
My Fat Brother, by Jim Keeble (LOVELY, i liked it a LOT, even though the supposedly ace poems that the lead character makes his living writing were a bit rotten)
Three Men In A Boat, by Jerome K Jerome (the BEST book EVER).
It was LOVELY to just be able to sit around and READ all day, without feeling I should be doing something more a) modern or b) important. Holidays ROCK!
