Recommend me some books

25 posts in this topic

Team,

Going on holiday next week and its looking likely that I'll be doing plenty of reading. Can you please recommend me absolutely any books that you might have read or are reading that you enjoyed?

I've just finished reading Flat Earth News. I'm going to pick up The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, as well as Mark Curry's Dancing with the Devil.

I'll read anything as long as its good, So fiction or non fiction, and it can be about anything (music, politics, biography, anything). ALL INPUTS WELCOME

We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver

Marching Powder - Rusty Young

Both awesome books.

I'm currently just reading a few books on the stock market. Don't know if they'd be of interest.

What makes it bullshit for you, might help someone else.

Might as well merge the topics.

The Other Hand - Finished it the other day, very good book. Cleave portrays human emotion extremely well. It tells you on the back of the book not to tell the plot, so I will just say, read it.

If you haven't read Fight Club do so now

Also, Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell is good and strangely amusing

Scott Pilgrim - If you're into comics/graphic novels.

Transfer of Power - If you like 24. This and the sequels to this book supposedly inspired 24, he even was a story consultant on some seasons.

Either speakup or shutup IMO.

If you've got something to say about the book (which I haven't read yet and so cannot pass judgement) then why not say something? I'm guessing you are either very religious or dislike Dawkins' research.

Just saying

And you're some guy sitting on your human high horse that believes some old geezer rounded up 2 of every species of animal, loaded them into some f*ck off big boat that he built, and sailed around for a bit?

I absolutely loved this book, it made me cry. Have you read 'Mister Pip' by Lloyd Jones? If you liked The Other Hand, you'll love that one.
