Read a good book recently?

Postby Oh Dear » Tue Feb 19, 2019 6:09 am

On Saturday morning, I went to get the It's Always Sunny book to read in bath. Very easy read, and very funny, so it was ideal. Fucked if I could find it though, but I did come across my all time favourite book. Catch 22. My God, it's the funniest thing you can ever read. I remember thinking it takes time to get going, but after three chapters I was laughing my head off. It's incredible.

Had the last Adrian Mole book, a series that I love, to read, and the book Stoner, for ages now, so I'm hoping this will kick start me getting back into reading. Used to go through one or two a month years back.

Yeah I still read. Not as much as I used to, when I was driving the lorries I had so much time to sit around getting paid to read. Plowed through loads tbf, loved it.

Bit harder to find the the time now but I still do. Currently on a novel called Jerusalem by the mighty Alan Moore (he wrote Watchmen,. V for Vendetta and many other awesome things) and it's absolutely mental. It's sort of brilliant and funny and he lives in Northampton which I know reasonably well so it's quite a fascinating read. Taking fucking ages though as its massive.

When I saw the trailer for that Dune movie I thought I’d read the book before it comes out as I’ve been meaning to read it for years.

The film is now delayed but I’m loving the book. I’m annoyed it’s taken me this long to get around to it. You can see how much of a blueprint it is for later sci fi/fantasy stuff (Star Wars very much included) and considering it was written in 1965 it still stands up really well.

It's a series of books isn't it?

I think he died before he finished them so other people wrote them and they went to shit.

I think it’s a trilogy. My mate is on the third one, he said the decline is quite severe after book one. This first one is great though.

Dave I can highly recommend a book called The Sugar Frosted Nutsack by Mark Leyner. You’d love it. I’m only half way through but it’s very entertaining.

I got it for 99p on the kindle a couple of weeks back, not sure if it’s still that price. Quality author.
