I really love historical novels, where actual characters from history are brought to life. I just finished reading two books by Evelyn Anthony. One was Anne Boleyn and the other was based on the life of Elizabeth Tudor (Queen Elizabeth the first) called All the Queens Men. Excellent books, both.

Aaaaaaaaaaargggghh! What happens to em lately? I've had to left apart three books in the last 2 months: The Drowned World by JG Ballard, Darwin's Radio by Greg Bear and The Moviegoer by Walter Parkey (or some name like that). Is it me or is it that the books are just bad?

I hope that a very well known and good writer can cure me from this illness: i've started Nazaret Hill by Ramsey Campbell. Let's hope this book is at the same level of quality than his other books!

Catch-22 - Great writing, but not any thing too addictive thus far, who knows it may get better.

I just finished BURNT SIENNA by David Morrell - an amazing, well-written, action-packed suspense thriller. Highly recommended.

And I just started THE MAN ON PLATFORM 5 by Robert Llewelleyn - this writer is the same man who played Kryten in RED DWARF.

I'm reading THE MAN ON PLATFORM 5 by Robert Llewellyn. I'm disappointed so far. The writing is a bit clumsy, the dialogue is bland, it's not as funny as the cover suggests and the story (an updated version of PYGMALION) is pretty offensive by modern standards - rich girls training a 'nerd' so that he is good enough for London 'High Society'. If it doesn't get better, I might not finish it.

Next up is THE AUTOGRAPH MAN by Zadie Smith. I really enjoyed her last book, WHITE TEETH.

"Nazareth Hill" is an excellent book. One of the best horror novels I've read lately. You might also consider reading "The 37th Mandala" by Marc Laidlaw.

I'm reading "The Bourne Ultimatum," by Robert Ludlum. Sequel to "The Bourne Identity."

There's a sequel to "The Giver?" What is it called again?

I've just finished Sleep No More by Greg Iles.

I only just discovered him, but already I've bought two more of his books on the strength of this one - it's a cracking thriller that kept me glued to the pages until the very end.

If you like Michael Connelly, Harlan Coben, John Connolly etc then you should check it out!

"Crusader" by Sara Douglass. It's the final book on the Wayfarer trilogy and will probably turn out to be great by the time I finish.
