finished this last night and its great! will try to review when the discussion thread is opened (i suck at reviwing things)
Lazlo Woodbine
Argh, i've still only managed 2 chapters sad.gif
I really better get reading.
fried_gold
there's still a couple of weeks left. how long will the comment thread be there? if its a long time discussion could go on for much longer giving you more time to read it :).
Lazlo Woodbine
Once i find a few hours i'm sure it won't take too long to catch up though. But i guess the discussion would last a little while, giving me more time if needed which might be useful.

Oh yes you should. Reading has so many advantages. Har har de har.

The discussion thread will be opened on the 1st December and will then last as long as it lasts - it won't be closed or deleted.

I've just passed half way, haven't had much time for reading lately but I aim to finish the bulk of it this weekend smile.gif
Raven
Well that was the plan anyway - still got a few pages to go and I don't think I'll make the deadline but I'll give it a go!

One day to go on Vernon - the December book title will be posted on Wednesday smile.gif
Raven
There wasn't a huge response to the last book, Vernon God Little, and I'm not sure how many have read American Gods.

Are people still interested in this? huh.gif

I'm happy to keep posting suggestions once a month if people are smile.gif
vixta
oops, i didn't even see this. at the moment i'm working my way down the richey edwards reading list - luckily i already read half of them.

so i'm interested smile.gif
Mase
I'm intrested too i just seem to keep missing which book it is until it starts getting reviewed! rolleyes.gif
Mase
Started reading Lucky jim earlier, the first time i've read Amis, and got 80 pages into it without looking up. Great book can't wait to finish it.
Mase
Can i also make a suggestion of Luke Rhinehart - The dice man for a future book to have a chat about smile.gif

Would be a tad churlish wink.gif tongue.gif

I'm very interested in this, but I'm just finishing off another book, so ill probably start in february
Raven
Cool!

I've had problems getting hold of a copy of Lucky Jim (toured the bookshops of Chichester on Saturday and couldn't find a copy). Will try to get hold of a copy as soon as possible but I doubt I'll have finished it by the end of the month sad.gif

Got mine for 1P from amazon, got to love that price!!
Raven
I was thinking of trying something similar smile.gif
TheGimp
I'd like to suggest the 'Mars' trilogy, by Kim Stanley Robinson.
It's amazing. It's better than Shakespeare.
And, as with his other books, I now want to see Mars.
Raven
That might be a bit too much to read in one month (for most anyway!). I'll add you to the list should you wish to suggest something in turn however!

My copy of Lucky Jim is on it's way from Amazon - 95p (plus 2.75 postage unfortuneatly!). Still cheaper than buying it new though!
TheGimp
Aha.

Me no readie the first postie.

I was merely recommending the trilogy as a damn fine read.
Sorry.
Raven
No worries!

Yes, and I thought it was a very well-written and moving book. In fact, one of the best I've read for a long time.
Raven
I don't want to discourage anyone from talking about literature but as a general reminder this is a thread for anyone interested in reading the books that have been put forward, on a monthly basis, by other froum members smile.gif

Whether anyone actually reads or comments on them is another matter! tongue.gif

yeah its a cool one... just a few chapters in good so far

BTW i'm new around here and want to join up... do you (as a group) just pick a book, read it, then discuss etc or what???
Julie
Are we still doing this? Because you can most certainly count me in! Im desperate for some good books lately. I have some sort of disease that makes it impossible for me to choose books on my own. I must have a recommendation from someone! And some intelligent conversation related to such would be just lovely. I'll see if I can get this one before the end of the month, if not, count me in for March! Cheers!

Yep, well in so far as I stubbornly post suggestions each month - whether people read the books and comment is up to them tongue.gif
