An amazing life well lived.
An amazing life well lived.
Anything by Nevil Shute plus Touring Bikes by Tony Oliver.
Lord of the Rings about 20 times
Ian m banks
And guilty pleasures are
David gemmel and Bernard Cornwall .
On the Road and Briideshead Revisited. No doubt accounting for lots of travelling and a love of fine wine. Made me the wreck I am today.
I expect it was a book from my youth, maybe Call of the Wild
Probably on about my 8th re-reading now. Still amazes me.
Electric Brae by Andrew Greig ...the man is infuriating he writes poetry non fiction thrillers romances but electric brae is where it all comes together best
Also Homage to Catalonia and Burmese Days by Orwell and when I was a teenager Lord of the Rings
for the other Cuckoo's Nest fans
BBC1 @ 11:50 tonight.
Great book, great film.
Good thread, has bulked up my amazon wishlist!...
my entry would probably be a Joseph Connolly, probably SOS, Summer things or winter nights...
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Adams)
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
Grapes of Wrath
The Warriors (Sol Yurick)
Weaveworld (Clive Barker)
Not sure which - read them all several times.
I've never read a book more than once.
Do you have too much time on your hands??
Often reread as I pick up stuff I missed first time through. Currently rereading The Passage by Justin Cronin, highly recommended, in preparation for reading The Twelve.
Probably most reread would be Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champion series and Clive Barker's Books of Blood. Read the LOTR a few times too.
I thought On the Road was garbage!
Good man ! But it inspired a generation apparently!
Loddrick - American Psycho . I absolutely hate that book. The film was 100 5 worse. And Less Than Zero is terrible.
Brett Easton writes like a 16 year old who has never had sex but tells everyone he is a playa!
The song of Phaid the gambler by Mick Farren
Would make an awesome movie
Don't often read books more than once, there's too many books out there. Have read the following twice though;
Shantaram, Gregory Roberts
Norwegian Wood, Murakami
Desert Solitaire, Edward Abbey
Master and Margarita, Bulgakov
Only read The Alchemist once, but now I've just seen it up there ^, it will be the next book I'll read. Thanks.
The Godfather a fair few times. On my 2nd sitting of Game of Thrones books at the moment.
As a result of this thread i decided to give Catch 22 a go. Found it hard work and not all that engrossing. However having said that, when i got to the end I liked the way it all came together and thought it was very cleverly written.
Cant imagine me reading it twice though!
War of the Worlds, HG Wells
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee.
Hamlet, Will Shakey.
The Tiger that came to tea. The most surreal book I've ever read.
@wittonweavers, I bought Catch 22 when I was travelling and the bloke in the book shop said 'Stick with it, the first 100 pages are hard work buts it worth it.' That was good advice, its certainly worth persisting with.
The Road Less Travelled
The Rift War Saga trilogy
