Easy one

OK, bit of sunday night fun:

Favourite book and favourite author??

Don’t want what you think we all want to see-war and peace, shakespear etc, would really like your secret fantasy, like the album/artist you have on your i-pod or playlist that you don’t tell the rest of the world about.

Happy sunday šŸ™‚

  1. Too many to name really Kate. I do enjoy anything by Wilbur Smith in particular his early novels about Africa.

  2. Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a trilogy in four parts.


  3. Oh wow, Isobel – Possession is one of my favourites too! Read it for the first time last year.
    Haruki Murakami has a simple, compelling way but I’m in Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel at the mo.

    You asking for music too? I’m happy to admit to most but, although I’m not a Madonna fan, I do have Ray of Light. Oh and you know that Mariah Carey track “All I Want for Christmas Is You” which was in the gloriously feel-good film Love Actually? Well,, I’m afraid I sing that all year round (in the car. s’ok. no-one can hear).

  4. Cyanide Yes! all the Frederica Potter ones.
    Thanks for your comment on my page earlier. šŸ™‚
    janh1 Possession was the first novel i managed to read after my father died. Five or six months later. It was like my re-entry. Until that point the world seemed so out of kilter it was already hard to deal with. Fiction was a step too far. So Possession had a big impact. it felt like a wonderful love affair. šŸ™‚
    Music? Judas Maccabaeus obviously. Cyndi Lauper Time After Time. How did madonna get to be so successful leaving the vastly more talented Cyndi languishing in the shadows?

  5. Books, as you know Kate, the wife runs a bookshop so I am always reading, the list is far too long.

    Crime Mark Billingham
    Sci Fantasy Philip K Dick, Michael Moorcock
    Comedy Terry Pratchett, Tom Holt, Robert Rankin

    Porcupine Tree
    Dead Soul Tribe

  6. Daniyal Mueenuddin’s “In other Rooms, Other Places”, is a collection of short stories which has swept numerous prizes in recent months – a superbly crafted series of word pictures of the society in which he lives.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniyal_Mueenuddin)

    On a more topical note, “Gordon is a Moron” by Vernon Coleman, leaves you wondering, as it did him, what we have done to deserve such public servants – it must have been something pretty terrible…

  7. Hi Kate

    Sorry to lower the tone, but …

    my secret vice is Jack Reacher (Lee Childs): “Reacher is the sort of hero no woman could help falling for” (hee hee!)

    He’s off the grid: ex-Army MP, no ties, no house, no lasting relationships, no dogs, cats or hamsters, only one change of underwear per book (which is a bit of a worry!).

    Great fun! šŸ™‚
