Reading Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas having seen the film a while back. It's awesome. Hunter S. Thompson is the craziest motherfucker ever.

Tom Clancys Red Storm rising is a fantastic book if you want a book that will grip you with lots of twists and turns

Also the Magicians guild and the rest of the books in that trilogy I found to be most enjoyable, had some good characters and the plot progressed at a good pace.

A game of thrones is a fantastic book but there are filming the pilot for it in a month I believe and it will have a good cast so it may be worth waiting for HBO to finish making it to be honest.

The Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz.
Picked these up in the 2 for 1 at WH Smiths, just finished the first at 3am an what a book. Cant really post any of the story as it will spoil it, but it is about a young bloke who can see and talk to Ghosts who havent moved into the light yet.
Very, very good books.

Great book, even better film. Depp and Del Toro had me in stitches right through that movie. Perfectly cast.

I read Watchmen the other week.

Realised the film is a really good adaptation, which in turn meant that the novel didn't leave many surprised, but still nice to find out what the hell was going on in some areas.

4/5

Filth by Irvine Welsh is really really good.

Finished We Need To Talk About Kevin a second time yesterday. The last time I was like 12 and it's interesting how the way I read it changed in that time.
But my God what a shit-kicking book.

Title very befitting, such a dark, twisted work.

Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy

Only a 1/3rd of the way through but this is a literary classic.
